Most of the time, I take photos because I want to see what something will look like as a photograph. Other times, I just don't want to forget I saw it. And then there's the times I have no idea why I took that photo.

I hesitated posting this. It is not something I believe, but the image is very striking - nonetheless.

The texture of the metal takes on a different, softer quality in sepia.

Fall textures

The textures of the needles and pine cones popped in sepia tones that the full color didn't.

Three versions

This photo popped in full color. When I changed it to Sepia and then Black-n-White... it popped in different ways. So, I decided to show all 3.

This one really popped as a black and white photo. In full color... it was not appealing at all.

I'm experimenting with changing photos to black and white. This is one that grabbed me much more as black and white than as color.

Winter fruit in black and white

I've been experimenting with Picasa's photo editing features to change photos into Black-n-White or Sepia toned.

Urban lines


With all this photography I've been doing... I'm noticing how power lines and other wires are everywhere - often interfering with a shot I want to take. I just never noticed them or paid attention to their presence before.
