oops... i forgot this one


i had converted and saved this image to go with the rest of the black and white photos in the post below. somehow i missed it, and i would not have even noticed if sandy had not left her comment on that post saying this:

"just as you described, you look at a photo and begin to see how the shot would take form should you remove the color. this is what i'm practicing more and more. like the flower photos i just posted. you typically think 'color' when you think about flowers. but, when you look at the shape and form of a flower you begin to see the architecture in the image which would convert to b&w. does this make sense?"

yes, sandy. it does. and thank you for saying so. otherwise i would have completely forgotten about this black and white flower photo. in fact, it is the last one i converted for the post, still i inadvertently left it out. although these flowers were white in the color version, the rest of the photo was made up of many rich shades of green. but i could see this as a black and white photo just as easily.

Hi Geogia, thise black and whites are gorgeous. Like my life is black and white right now, no color left. I might pick it up again sooner or later. Thanks for letting my look into myself with more perspective. Hugs Dagmar

That's the beauty of conversion. I only used infared/black and white film in college before I switched to a digital camera and never preferred color film. But I love being able to take a million photographs now and see them in both color and black and white. I now tend to prefer only color. The preferences are always changing.
With that, I really need to plant hydrangeas because it really is the most beautiful flower. I imagine it looked just as pretty in color. Hope all's well. :)
