Seeing the World in Shades of Gray
Merry winter Solstice to all of you out there in cyberland. I hope your holidays are going well. I have been busy keeping up with my photography for my photo of the day posts on Facebook. My class has ended and it was clear to me I need to keep going and continue my creative journey. My current explorations are with black and white images. I wanted to focus on seeing the world in tones, texture and shapes without the distraction of color. Not that I mind color, I love it, but also like the challenges of black and white.
In the two scenes I am sharing here I have chosen the busy city streets of Cincinnati. These were taken from the street corner where my workplace is located. I am using a simple Nikon point and shoot camera. The great thing about these cameras is that they are simple and easy to carry around.
Well, that's it for today. I am gearing up for some art making on the holiday days off I will have and getting some of my subjects completed for my next series of photographic images. Plus, I have some more painting I need to do to satisfy that particular artist residing in me. Have a great weekend one and all.
