Little pieces of my life and my photos.
I see color in my imagination when I see beautiful black and white photos like this one today, Kerri.
Black and white is not so bad. This is a beautiful shot! I took pictures of a camelia bush in bloom in south Georgia but none of the pictures turned out. Looking back on your blog I saw lots of color!
I still think that colour is all around us Kerri.. look in the woodlands, turn over a few stones or rocks, close up of the bark, don't forget holes in stumps can hide wonderful forms. Moss is another good one. Look for winter flowers, and of course the best bit about all the leaves falling is the birds are more on show.I'm sure you will find colour, but like others have said B & W pictures are stunning. Try high lighting just one subject in the picture... leave that coloured and all the rest B&W..All the very best to you Kerri..Tom
Hi KerriCome to Africa, we have plenty of colour here :)Having said that your winter colours have a beauty of their own.
If you find a place, let me know!! All my photos are blah to me because there is too much snow. However, I do so LOVE what you did with this photo by turning it into black & white!! :)
well if it's any comfort, I am crazy about all the monotone winter photos i am seeing from my snowbound friends in blogland! How about dressing a large teddy bear in a bright red jersey and sitting it in whatever view you are capturing?!! (when you get bored with red, try orange or purple or pink....)
I, too, get tired of the monotones of winter. Here in PA we get a lot of gray days without snow or sun.I bought a pass to nearby Longwood Gardens which has a large conservatory. They allow tripods in the mornings. I'm waiting for the holiday season to be over to visit.
Look at it this way: White (light) have all colours - black has none. That makes such a nice picture as you have shown us here possible. It demonstrates the amount of light there is around us. After all - light is the important thing?
Love the comments from Old Wom Tigley and Rune. I think they hit the nail on the head. Maybe its a challenge to see things in more detail and find the beauty in everyday items. happy hunting.
I find color all around me too, look at the clouds for sky watch friday, always seem to find a cloud or sky that turns a pretty blue or pink or grey. And then when i really want some great colors i go and look at some of my old photos from spring and summer. And of course all of my nice blogging friends here that always seem to come up with something really great like your beautiful flower.Hope you have a wonderful and prosperous New Year
Low winter light is in my opinion some of the most beautiful.Try 4:00 p.m.~Oswegan
Beautiful picture. Look up to find color. The blue sky seems extra blue on a bright winter day.You can always wear colorful clothes. :-)
Great question"! I love all the answers you got. I struggle trying to find things outdoors this time of year. You got some great suggestions.I also wanted to let you know I tagged you for a meme. I hate tagging people! So if you want to play along great! If not, I will not be offended! Take care!
I find a lot of color in the sky; sunrise and sunset or blue on sunny days. When it is grey (and it is a lot around here) I find color in my kid's toys. Christmas gifts and lights have cheered me alot lately too.
Imagination, Kerri, I think greenhouses or tropical greenhouses, but as ev1 says its all around -only different colours.Bring out your summer photos out and show?Is Brianna going to show more work??for her fan club lol.come and see Buckfast Abbey and the Water Wheel Mill.
The question is challenge for with. The WB photograph is very big art, and requires knowledge of many years and continuous education. Mixture white and black us it gives the grey, thus we have 250 roughly nuances of grey, from white until the black. I will dare, to give also i - at my opinion - a answer. Seeing the flower of photograph, I conceive that it is not plant that is found in the nature native and in northern hemisphere this season. This season in the nature of USA, the 90% of flowers are in colour yellow and nuances of this. Big stamens that retain anthers, are usually found in the flowers of hot seasons. Hence it is flower that does not find this season in the nature.(it is reasonable) Thus it helps the vegetarian insects him the distinguish more easily in coffee colours of ground, in order pollination.(it is reasonable) Petals in the flower of photograph they raise white with yellow edging, or opposite, with stamens open lights yellow from the pollen.If exists also the publication of photograph with colours enters in next post.
Yeh, I hear what you mean. I work with the colors of the skies and the sun at this time of the year but I sketch and draw in black and white as well and I let those people use their imagination as to what colors should be there. It's more fun, more exciting. This is a very pretty shot, by the way!!~Michele~Rocky Mountain Retreat
Imagination......in our inner being is where our color is.
In Delta, I just angle the camera up to get some deep blue (most days) :)
I'll bet you can find enough color in your kitchen to keep you busy for at least a couple of hours. Think kitchen still life.
Red of barns, yellow of daffodils, bllue of crocus, and so on... Annie has it right too...
Ditto what Kostas said.
You can visit mine if you are in the area. Right now there is green, yellow, orange, red, blue, purple and pink in there. I am going to sit in there this afternoon.
Just look at the sky.
I am beginning to see early blooming plant popping up in Brookside Gardens and we still have Camellias blooming there. I am also finding color in the elements of the gardens like light striking a rock surface with shadows cast on it.I also convert images to b&w and then sepia tone some of them this time of year.I like what you have done with this conversion - a very appealing image.
You have a ton of great ideas for color here already. Do not forget pine trees, they are green and are beautiful after the snow falls on them.
I don´t have that problem... our winters are rainy but even so we get some sunny days...I have published today a wonderful photo of stainglass wnindow. Amazing colors there.By the way, let me wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR and that all of your dreams come true!
thaks for visiting my blog at My Expressions. I enjoyed looking at yours. Oh, btw, I love b&w.
Ah, Kerri, I am not a right person for the question like that. It is so cold over here; I can only see the snow and ice.This is too much even for me who love winter and snow. :-) Thank you for this lovely photo which makes my day.
I've been in a photo slump since winter started because of the lack of colors (not to mention the brutal cold that doesn't allow me to go outside!). I've tried playing around indoors, but it just isn't as fun for me. I think I need to take a dose of creativity!
