Monochrome Monday: 18th January 2021

A Tangle of Branches.

Taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood. I had gone out with a macro lens on the camera intending to look for close up detail.

Instead I noticed the tangle of branches in the top of some Paper Birch trees against a grey winter sky. The photo was monochromatic to begin with. I used the monochrome conversion to adjust the contrast between the trees and the sky.

Tracks in the snow on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood.

The photo was monochromatic to begin with but I did a monochrome conversion to see how much different the two versions would look. There wasn’t a lot of different apart from the colour original having a colder colour balance. This is the monochrome version.

Monochrome Monday travels back a month to the end of November.

With a partly cloudy sky I headed to the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula at dawn.

Monochrome Monday: 14th December 2020

Monochrome Monday is traveling back to a walk around the neighborhood in late November. I took this photo of raindrops on bare branches and edited it for a blog post at the time.

I never used it as the colour balance looked odd to me. Weeks later I realised that the photo was about the reflections of the sky in the raindrops and there was no need for colour in the image.

If I had taken the photo in my film years when I was shooting black and white film alongside colour I would probably have reached for the camera loaded with black and white film. It would be nice if I could get that ability to “see” in monochrome back.
