monochrome series 1


I've fallen in love with monochromes 
again

 my renewed love
 is due to 
Topaz Labs BW Effects plug in
works 
with
 iMac's 
Aperture 
and 
iPhoto
 the range of monochromes
 possible 
seem endless 

lucky you
 I am going to dazzle you
 with
 all sort and manner 
of 
monochrome

 this photo
 with all its
 stripes and shadows
 seemed to cry out 
ME DO ME ME!! 
so
 I 
did

the other
photographs
 in this
series
 will be shared
over
at
 Through My Eyes
til
you get bored

  3. I totally LOVE it! Love it!! You will be pleased to hear that my brother just bought himself a present...a brand new iMac...it is a retirement gift for himself!! I told him it just might be a full time job just learning the new Operating system!! He will love it. I would place money that he will have an iphone by the end of the year!! And even an iPad! You simply can't have just one!! Happy Friday Daryl!!!

  7. very cool photo I think the b/w is so much better than color at times Plus I find our old photos hold up better than the color. Interesting I think. Hope you enjoy this gorgeous weekend!

  8. She had some left over material and whipped herself up a 'carry all'. The shadows definitely look fab in B&W Daryl, go on ...let us have many more!!

  10. Daryl, I was always reluctant to shoot b&w. Seemed like taking a step backward! But I've learned to like it too! Topaz B&W helped!
    I really like this shot! I posted one something similar the other day on my other blog: http://robinsdaily.wordpress.com/
    drop on over and have a look!
    Hope you have a nice weekend. It's a long weekend here and it's traditionally crummy in the weather department. It's cloudy and cool this morning, so looks like it's living up to tradition!

    in the meantime, I will enjoy being dazzled.

  13. I like this photo. It's not easy to walk around and find just the right stripes for a shot like this. Good fortune:-)

  14. Oooooo, looking forward to this.
    For some reason, I always get the monochrome "bug" in the winter.
    Love this shot!
