Black and White Shrub

I’ve been on a black and white photography kick lately. I don’t know what triggered it, but I can’t get enough of well-done monochrome photos. I did this one tonight based on a photo I took of a Lilac shrub in my front yard.

I did quite a bit of manipulation in Photoshop to the original shot to get this output, but I think the results are worth it.

Wedding Pictures Are Online!


94 of them to be precise… 🙂

They are all in the Wedding Pics set, so it’ll be easy to browse just the wedding photos.

EDIT: (09.10.07) – Added another 100+ pictures, made individual albums for each person who gave us pictures, and added each individual set to the Wedding Photos collection. The original link was changed to point at the new collection also.


I finally managed to catch this on camera. I’ve seen this happening a lot this winter, but it’s usually while we’re in the car and don’t have the camera handy (anybody wanna chip in to buy me a decent small point & shoot cam for my birthday? 🙂 ). This morning when I walked outside and saw this, I just had to duck back in the house and grab the camera. Here’s Wikipedia’s entry on icebows.

These 4 shots were taken on the back steps this morning.
