Not a B&W morning

Several weeks ago I accepted a challenge from a photographer friend to make a B&W photograph every day. I rarely work in B&W, do not have an eye for seeing the world that way, and am not very adept at processing images in grayscale. That said, I had fun doing a week’s worth and have since even begun to see more and more possible B&W images.

 

No B&W for me this morning, however, as after several gray days in a row and some much needed rain, the sun returned, wonderfully low-in-the-sky, reminding us of the rainbow of colors, even if mostly fallish, that remains.

The Ginkgo in our yard will probably drop all its leaves tonight with clear skies and freezing temperatures forecast. Until then…

    and I’m sure you will send us a picture of your Gingko tomorrow…right? Ours is still green, green, green…and I’m waiting for the gold, and then the big drop!

    Love the colors you captured in the leaves and the composition. Hope the Ginkos hold on for awhile. Dianne

    All beautiful! Really like the b/w ones, too – especially the anemone.

  7. Our ginkgo is still green. Your photo up into yours with it’s golden branches is lovely. The shapes are intriguing. I wonder what the sun through the ginkgo leafs would do in black and white?
