Looking Back, Thinking Black

I’m revisiting my digital archives to view some of my images in black and white. In the future, I’ll try to see them that way in the field.

I often have the final image in mind when I’m composing a picture, but that image hasn’t really considered black and white.

BTW: First thing this morning, I was trying to figure out why comments seem to be disabled from the “Summer’s Coming On” post from yesterday (thanks for the heads-up, Doug, it was not on purpose!) and while “fixing” I managed to screw up my template. Short term solution has been to replace it with a copy (thank goodness!) from February, so we’ve reverted to some old header and sidebar images until I can tweak it.

  1. I know I’ve said this often enough to render it meaningless, but “this is one of my favorites.”

  2. My thanks to Doug, too. I wanted to post and I’m so not a techie that I thought it was my stupidity that prevented me. Now I’ll try to remeber what I wanted to say!

  3. Handsome! Did you use something like a fish-eye lens, or did you just find the world that way that day?

  4. I wish I had a fish-eye. I’m sure this was taken at the shortest focal length I have–18mm which on the digital CCD is more like 30mm with a standard lens, wide angle, but not fisheye.

    The perspective of towering trees bigger at the base also lends itself to this sense of distortion.
