This week, Sally asked us to shoot a monochromatic photo.
In her email, Sally mentioned that a monochromatic photo can tell a story that a full color photo can't always capture. As I was taking and editing pictures, I began to see this for myself.
There is a tree along the highway that I notice from time to time. I've always wanted to build a story around it. While I wasn't able to get a photo of that tree (it's a bit too far to drive just for a photo), I found a different one.
Along the way, I saw an old shed that could tell a few stories.
Finally, I played with one photo and used three different filters:
black and white
and black and yellow
The last one is my favorite.
Sally, thank you for another wonderful week. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the motivation to get out and take pictures. I am enjoying the results immensely.
Please take time to visit Sally's blog and see the monochromatic wonders from the other participants.
