It’s All There In Black and White . . .

 

. . . and, in the case of these pictures, sometimes in sepia too.

Some pictures from the trip had interesting lines going on in them that I liked best as black and white or sepia.

I like my new “favorite” in sepia tones too.

 We make faith so complicated sometimes.  But, if we faithfully study the word of God, it’s all there in black and white too. 

He said it.  I believe it.  Amen

    I really like your pictures and I also do photography and I was wondering how you got yours on your blog.
    Can you please help me

    Tierra — It’s a little ironic that you would ask me of all people, because it was a long hard struggle for me to learn how to put photos on here. I just started really in July. If your blog is hosted by WordPress, I can tell you a little about the mechanics of how I do mine, but if you are hosted by another host, it would be different. If you respond to this, if you will leave your e-mail address, we can “correspond” and maybe the little I know can be of help to you! 🙂

    I really like #3–the varied tones, dark and light.

  4. Sandra says:

    Beth — I enjoyed having the ones I took of the rock walls along the highway so that I could really study them. Usually you just get a glimpse from a passing car. Because I DO love looking at all the variations in them. But, besides the Hubby one, I think my favorite is the second one. I just love the clouds in that one. Big Surprise? 🙂

    I’m with Beth – I really like the rocks in #3. I love B&W because you get right down to the elements and composition without the distractions of color.

    I like the took of bare trees in winter, so I also really like #1.

    They are all nice to look at. Keep ’em coming.

  6. Sandra says:

    SBW — It is interesting how black and white adds emphasis to different things than the color does. I find many photos, when changed to b/w, take on a “mood.” For instance, the first picture somehow gives off a “Wurthering Heights” mood to me. I can almost hear the wind in those trees!

    Very well said, and very cool photos!

  8. Kacey says:

    Oh, you are right! That last one does make it look like your husband’s head is “in the clouds”. Yes, I’m glad that I don’t erase pics I think are “ruined” at first glance.

  9. Sandra says:

    Kacey — Finding this one will always make me take a second look at the “throw-aways!”

  10. Sandra says:

    New Diva — Thank you!

    Great photo’s Sandra!
    I had read an article written by a professional photographer that she always asks herself if the pic would look good as B&W. If the answer is no, she doesn’t take it. She has never taken a bad photo yet.
    I like your idea of lines and shades. Looking forward to seeing more.
    I definitely like your last quip at the end of the photos. Amen to that. So very true.

    omahs – What a great guideline that “pro” used. I’ll keep that in mind. Thank you.
