A (Mostly) B&W Walk In The Woods

Reena and I took a little hike at Sandburg Conservancy today. It seemed like a much better idea than house cleaning. As has become our custom, we both savored the walk with a camera in hand.

It is surely a way to change your perspective on what - exactly - your eye notices. As I was savoring the surroundings, I was struck less by color and more by light and texture. By the third photo I had resolved that the set would be Black and White.

That was a refreshing change for me. I often find after the fact that an image works well in B&W. Having the intent of doing the images that way was fun, and changed the conditions of my casual walk in the woods.

These are just a few sample images. View the whole set as a slide show, in deliciously larger size, HERE. It is worth it to see them in large size.
