What makes effective black and white photos? Is it the subject, the light, the composition? Take a series of photos in black and white, explaining why they are effective.
Christy has photos of her dogs here, and I will share Bill's photos when he is done here.
As I watched the leaves fall off the trees in and around my home, I thought they would be a good subject for this assignment.
For this series of photos, I think the black and white photos are effective because of the contrast of the dark branches and leaves against the lighter sky. It also shows a clear definition of the leaves remaining on the branches.
Here are some of the black and white photos I took of "The Starkness of the Trees of Autumn" around my house today.
Sibling Assignment 2016.6:I Don't Need Applause for my Cooking, but a "Taste's Great" would go a long way!! #3Siblings
I have come to realize that I like to cook for other people in order to get positive feedback on what I have prepared.
My best friend April has moved to Italy. Before she left, our other best friend Kellee and I prepared for her an Italian dinner using a mostacciolli recipe that I had received from Kellee's mom when I was in junior high. I loved finding that recipe and preparing it for April, because there was a connection with not only Kellee's mom (who recently passed away), but also a relative of April's who probably shared the recipe with Kellee's mom. And I loved it when I heard the words "This is delicious". It warmed my heart.
I didn't get in a car, but a school bus. And the road took me to Spokane, Washington with a group of 27 Kellogg High School juniors who wanted to visit the Gonzaga University campus.
Planning a college visit the first part of November can be risky, because of the weather. It could be pouring down rain, it could be windy, it could be snowing.
But we experienced none of that on this trip. After one of the wettest October's on record, November has proven to be a bit more sunny. And the GU campus was beautiful. Below are some of the photos of the campus I took on this day filled with blue sky, sunshine and God's magnificent display of fall colors.
Before you check out my photos, here are links to Bill's photos of New York City, and Christy's photos of Priest Lake.
We left Kellogg High School around 8 a.m. that morning, and arrived on the GU campus between 9:30 a.m. and 10. Here are some of the views that I got to experience that day on campus.
