Winter Light

Welcome to another Monochrome Madness Tuesday. I am continuing to experiment with light, this time it is a natural light. The original image was almost monochrome, so there was really nothing much to do. I enjoy these kind of images, where I have what I need from the start.

WInter is the perfect time to take some indoor images in my house, because it is the period with the most light. Being surronded by trees is lovely, save for two things…lack of natural light from March to October…and abundance of spiders. This year they picked out my home for their winter resort, I really don’t know where they are coming from.

This Is My Happy Face

Sometimes it’s hard to choose an image for Monochrome Madness Challenge, other times it’s quite easy. This week it proved to be hard, as I was processing one image after another, with no satisfying result. So, I went back to my old folders, browsing, searching….until I stumbled upon these two.

This is an image from way back, spring of 2006, taken in Zagreb Zoo with Olympus C7070. I started to play around with it and the result surprised me. I did some cropping and it really improved the composition, I feel like there is a story in there. They are really gorgeous, those tinny, grumpy owls.

What to do…

…When there is no inspiration for the title? I just can’t figure it out. Nothing comes to mind. Oh well, I’ll leave it this way.

This is my entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge. Few weeks ago I had some fun taking photos of my jewelry and thought some of those would look good in b&w.
