There are few things I love more than waking up to muffled thunder and gentle rain. Especially when I don’t have to get up early. But this morning I decided to get out of bed anyway.
I blame it on photography.
Yesterday’s Picture Black and White prompt was to explore things at ground level. So last night after dinner I went outside to see what the perfect evening light might reveal.
Before I started crawling around the on the ground, I couldn’t resist getting a few shots of these enchanting summer blooms.
But of course the challenge is how that translates into black and white.
And it’s interesting, because without the distraction of the amazing golden-green hues of the grass, what remains is the gorgeous quality of the light. And the texture of the grass.
I love how taking a photo from this perspective makes a broken-up, hole in our sidewalk turn into a delightful puddle in which to catch a tiny raindrop’s ripple. And in black & white it’s just that much more obvious.
It’s so much fun taking pictures and experimenting.
Happy summer friends!
