Monthly Photo Theme Project – Black and White

It’s time to visit my Monthly Photo Theme Project again…

the theme for February is Black and White.

We had a little spring like weather on Valentine’s day so D and I headed off to the lake to take the cameras for a walk. There was a beautiful blue sky, a little ice left on the water, a few campers about, and more birds flying overhead than I could even begin to count.

I worked on capturing the blue sky and the sparkle of the ice but I did remember to  look for subjects that I felt would make a good black and white print.

Songs Of Silence -- 1/160 sec - f/10 - ISO 100 - 35mm
Songs Of Silence —
1/160 sec – f/10 – ISO 100 – 35mm

This sparse scene caught my eye as a potential black and white and I think that it works out nicely this way. After all besides the blue sky everything else here was already very monochrome.

Old Images Revisited

As I begin to get used to the new version of Photoshop and start to learn more about all the power it has I find I am in short supply of new images. Looks like it just might be time for another weekend trip; or at least a Sunday drive! But for today I opened a file from 2012 and revisited a few old images.

Oh yeah. I’m going to like this new Photoshop!

What old images should I revisit next?
