Black and White

These are some pictures I've taken. The film was slightly damaged so there is some grain and crackly look that came as I took the shot, not because of photo shop. I have a film SLR. I love using it, but film and the developing process is now more expensive then digital, so I tend to lay low in the photography field I desire to enter so much.

Hwy 2 looking west- I love this shot. I embodies my desire to travel. It also makes me reflect on where I've been and where I want to go.

Even though sunflowers usually referenced because of their bright and intense color, look how much detail is in the texture and angles! I don't think I would have noticed as much if this photo was in color.

This is my brother, Mark. He has the best smiley eyes I've ever seen. In color, this was partly lost, but with b/w you catch more emotion. If I'd had a little slower shutter speed I might have been able to get some catch lights in his eyes... hard to do when he's driving and you're in the back seat swaying to and fro while he drives through Colorado Springs traffic. So much fun!
