This is one of the few bits of remaining color surrounding my yard. It just doesn’t quite look the same in black and white. For some things I think you really do need color. The leaves are a beautiful shade of light red, which is lost in this image.
I really have been enjoying shooting images in black and white, though, and will probably keep it up (interspersed with some color) after the November in Black and White challenge is over. Ordinary things do become extrordinary. Old becomes new. Uninteresting becomes interesting. For info about November in black and white and more wonderful images – click here.
