Your Monday Photo Shoot: Monochromatic
Your Monday Photo Shoot: Share some of your favorite black and white photos. Older pictures are good, but what you also might think about is seeing how some of your favorite color pictures look in black and white -- most computer photo editors will let you make a photo black and white (or sepia-toned -- that's monochromatic, too). This is an opportunity to look at some of your best photos in a new way.
It was hard for me to choose which ones to share, because I have so many favorite old pictures. But I decided on this one of Mother and Daddy because it's so natural. I can almost smell the coffee and biscuits. I'm guessing there's home-canned jam or jelly in those jars.
I like this one because my Grandma's house is in the background, and because this is the only picture I have of Grandma's original Tippy-dog. She named all her dogs Tippy because it was easier than learning a new name for a new dog. That's my cousin Betty, me, and my cousin Royce.
My parents are in this shot, and uncles and aunts, and Grandma, of course. But the thing that I wonder about is this: What am I doing to cousin Betty???? Why do I have her in a bear hug? Something tells me I got a scolding for not posing properly for this picture.
