If a picture paints a thousand words

This blog is a place for me to work on my photography. My goal is to submit a new picture every day and to get better as the moments go by. I take all pictures with my digital camera. I worked for years with a 35 mm minolta, and this is a learning experience for me. I am afraid that I got lazy and allowed the camera to choose most of the settings for me. This is my journey of learning how to shoot a camera that is not in a program mode. It is harder than I ever imagined. That makes this challenge both a new experience and a joy for me.

Halloween in Black and White - Day 63

So, for the next couple of days, I am redoing the Halloween pictures into black and white.  Some of them came out pretty good.  Some of them I like better in color.  I thought that I would post them both ways here and you can see and compare.
This first set is of all the girls.

Here are the same pictures in color.  I grew up with black and white, so I actually like them.  Although, when the colors are bright and vibrant, I prefer to have them in the pictures.


  1. Oh I definitely like in b&w! Especially the second one. Cute girls and pup! :0)

  2. And I see toto came along for the fun. I do like the b&w and I think a mix of a bit closer up, but with the fofo of the skirts would have been nice too. Death ballerina ... Gotta love it!
