A Season Of Black And White. December 19, 2009

The Holidays notwithstanding, the weather around here provides a palette of black and white and shades of gray.

Rather than wrestling that into some kind of faux-technicolor, I’ve stripped these shots down to their monochromal essences.

A gone-by Queen Anne’s lace gathers the freezing mist below Mole Hollow Candle Company at Salmon Falls:

And Birds on a Wire above a power station on the Deerfield River:

These were both done with Elliot, my 24mm tilt-shift lens, allowing me to bring in a couple of different elements of each.

Hope you like them.

No, I’m not. But rivers are public property, and posting the whole place chafes my butt to the degree that I’m goin’ whether they want me there or not!

But then, you already knew that about me. πŸ™‚

Gina, thanks – I like it too! It evokes visions of really old photographs, in part I think because “tilt/shift” wasn’t a stylistic option in the Old Days, but rather a necessary part of the process which we Moderns have mostly lost. I got it back here with a good deal of shift and some tilt as well. I’m really happy that you liked the result. πŸ™‚
