Well, spring is coming . . . slowly. The apple blossoms are in full bloom now and the cherry blossoms are budding. They'll be opening up within a few days. Here's an apple blossom tree that I found in the park near my office.

The reason this photo is in b&w is that I wanted to play with the idea of actually composing photos in b&w. I usually take them in color and then convert them into b&w if I think that will work. I was testing the idea that actually viewing and composing the shots in b&w from the start would force me to look at the scene in a different way - and I think that was true.

This looks very much like an IR effect, works well with this subject.

Very creative thinking.That's the difference between a snapshot and a photograph.

(Nothing wrong with snapshots though,we all take them for fun.)

Enjoy Spring! Keep shooting.

Next time you come out to the Left coast, you MUST go up to Monterey and take the 17 mile drive.Now THAT is scenery!

Best,

Rick
