Black and White

This Daily Post from WordPress last week on black and white photography inspired me to share this picture. It was taken in color, last December, in my grandmother’s front yard. I was manipulating some other things on the picture and thought ‘why not slip a black and white filter in and see what it looks like?’ And then sat there with my mouth open.

[Side note: today is my brother’s birthday – happy birthday J! 😀 Also, it’s six months since I launched this blog – how did that happen already?
Edit: tomorrow is also my Gramma’s birthday – my top commenter! Happy Birthday Gramma! :-D]

    Beautiful picture! You are quite impressive. I will be in that very front yard this week-end for your Gramma’s birthday!

    Beautiful! Where is your Gramma’s yard? California, for real? That’s so neat. I had never been to CA until last year, we went for our anniversary and Mike’s birthday. I loved the different landscape there.

      Yes, my Gramma lives up in the mountains in northern California. It certainly is a different landscape from back East – glad you could go see the beauty.
