Well, this week's theme on Fifty-Two Frames (that Facebook meme that I was telling you about) was Black and White. So intriguing! But, unfortunately for me, my camera doesn't seem to have a b&w setting. So for the first time ever, I adjusted a photo into something new with Windows Picture Manager. I've really never done anything with black and white before - it's a whole new art form for me. And it was especially tricky, since I couldn't see what the photos would look like until I got them onto my computer. I had a feeling that something with some interesting shading and texture would be interesting... anyway, here's the photo that I chose to post - both before and after:
It's not fantastic, but it's definitely the best of the options that I had. Also, like most things I post here, it looks better close up, so feel free to click on the photo to get a better view! And please feel free to offer comments and suggestions - I'm really interested in black and white tips!
Also, on the off chance that this qualifies for my favorite meme, Shadow Shot Sunday, I'm going to post this there as well, at Hey Harriet. Go check it out now - you'll be glad you did!
Have a great week, everyone!
