From a job I was working several downed trees on the property – kind of hate to see this sort of thing but it’s nature’s way and ultimately serves a purpose.
Grandmother is a color person, she likes it and not bashful in saying so.
When it comes to black and white photos that isn’t where her preference lies, though there are those she appreciates for the drama they can deliver.
In seeing the “birthday flower” in black and white she needed to ruminate for a moment but decided that she does like it and encouraged me to post it since I’d previously posted the color version.
So a little tweak here, a little tweak there and here it is.
It’s very peaceful along this river, a good place for a leisurely walk – so much so I once sat down and leaned against this log and nodded off for a few minutes.
When I awoke there was a grey fox a dozen or so feet away looking quizzically at me, so I said hello – he cocked his head to one side and kinda smiled so I tossed him a piece of jerky which he accepted and trotted off.
Left the remainder for him along with a biscuit and meandered on.
I took this photo maybe ten years ago and was just fooling around with it, started out lighter but the darker I made it the more moodier it became and I’ve come to prefer it over the lighter version.
Obviously influenced by photographers like Agrandaiz and Joshi Daniels though not on par with their efforts.
