This might be a theme. Don’t hold me to it. I had some black and white photographs from my trip to the Chicago Botanic Garden with John (the day after the day before the world was supposed to end – how’s that for a tongue twister?), and monochrome Monday hit me for some reason. We’ll see if it hits me again next week.
These black and whites blew my mind. I have been a member at the botanic gardens for years and years, and I don’t think in all the thousands of photographs I’ve taken there, I’ve ever converted more than 2 or 3 digital images to black and white. With all the gorgeous colors, how could I? But I’m elated I had a roll of tri-x in my camera when we arrived, and I see some more B&W trips in my future. Stripped of the vibrant colors, the textures and shapes of the plants and flowers shine in a way I don’t usually see with my color work.
Obligatory geek speak: Canon Elan 7e, 50mm f/1.4, Kodak tri-x 400
