Spring. A refreshed outlook.

Regular readers (LOL) may have noticed that I always try to get away from ‘nature’ photography. I seem like I am happier when I get to photograph something of a different, ahem, nature. Yes, I do enjoy the occasional urban/street/automotive/abstract photograph, but I have decided that I will embrace the nature. Yes, I am going to happily photograph the natural word but at least attempt for a different perspective. Different for me at least.

In this installment I am going to show some spring sightings in black and white. Nothing out of the ordinary there but I tend to photograph spring flowers and blossoms in color and frankly I was getting bored with my current output. I have shot black and white a majority of the time and all of my award winning shots have been in black and white, so I’m not sure why I have been avoiding it of late.

Tulips are a spring flower that always brings color to mind. Indeed these flowers at a nearby park were colorful but, with the exception of some macro shots in the past, I don’t believe I ever looked at them in black and white.

Of course no one thinks of color much when it comes to dandelions, so no big departure here. A few were sprouted up in my yard and, out of nothing much else to do, I figured I would try a couple experimental shots.

That’s it for now!
