  1. What a great macro with the light highlighting the details, offset by the black background!

    1. Thank you Sue! I’m still testing this new little point-and-shoot, while experimenting with black & white conversion in Photoshop Elements.

      1. I went to a photo club last evening with B&W as topic, showing members photos on slide show & had a professional there giving critique. Was fascinating!

        1. That’s a lecture I’d enjoy! But I suspect it was in “the OC”. Too far for me.

  2. Interesting in B/W. Really brings the fine hairs and structure into focus. It is like a dream that you have sunflowers blooming, while we are still covered with snow!

    1. I studied both the color & B/W images for some time before deciding to post the B/W. It’s a completely different statement; feels like more of the essence somehow. I admire B/W but feel intimidated by it. Last weekend I saw the Ansel Adams exhibit here at the nearby Getty Museum. Awesome. And to your other point — I like the northeast very much, but I’m astonished that people can maintain such patience and appreciation in living where winter has been so long & harsh. This past “winter” in L.A. has been like driving through a town with one stop light.
