One thing that I am finding so useful about only doing black and white is contrast – white against black, shape against shape. I am not a particularly analytical person so it takes awhile for what I see to make intellectual sense, such as the visual evidence of light and dark working to create shapes.

Sycamores are wonderful trees to tell you autumn is here! Their leaves, large and pointy, change with the season. In summer, they are green, and with the change in seasons, the leaves become gold and orange and brown, mottled in color, transparent and brilliant against the sunlight.
These are the last of the Mira Sol peppers, waiting until they are ready to be harvested for seeds. I have never seen this pepper before, but we like it a lot, so we figured best to save some seeds for next year’s planting.
Another bench, a different experience. Here, the valley below and the mountains beyond fill your world.
On a sunny day I like to sit here. The scent of pine needles. Birdsong and the rustle of leaves in the wind.
This was an automatic exposure of several seconds to see if the AE function of the Mamiya 645 Pro TL was working. It is! I think a longer exposure brings out the grain.
These spinning wheels really work, if you are interested, and I do use them.
More fun with the Mamiya 645 Pro TL! You get to enjoy my messy desk . . . which is fairly tidy today.
I recently bought a Mamiya 645 Pro TL with a lens, grip, viewfinder, and film back. It’s a medium format camera. To test out that all parts were working as advertised, I put a roll of film in it and went to work. I tested the auto-exposure and manual exposure. The film advance in the grip, too. Everything worked. Focus was on the little lamp, leaving the flowers outside the field of focus. In post, I used Negative Lab Pro to process the images, but turned them to black and white in LR. Altogether, I am happy with my purchase. And I managed to get a few pictures that were decent out of all that play!
