The rain, rain, rain...

...came down, down, down...
* Happy St. Patty's Day friends! I've waited ALL week for my rainy day Saturday and I'm even listening to this...
Ohh C'mon know you love a little Pooh Bear on a rainy day!
I've also waited to work on my b&w photo assignments for  
Black & White photos draw me in almost faster than anything in color. They are so full of mystery and depth. I tend to find when I go to edit, a lot more detail comes out.

*When I was playing with different conversion, I found that I liked the the PSE conversion INFRARED. I've never used it before but I liked what it did.  I shot this with full diffused rainy day light, ISO 1000, f2.2, 1/60, applied some great scratch textures and it fit my mood on this blustery day. I tend to like the distressed look too for added drama.

* Hope you enjoy your day! Think I'm going to bake something.....!
P.S. If you are visiting from BL & have a Flickr acct.,  I'm not on Flickr anymore. I'm sorry I can't comment on your work. But please know I am looking!
Happy Snapping!


  1. yes, I am finding I am really drawn to b&w eventho I have always considered myself a color gal. The sticks are great, but I really love that bottle and the handle.

  2. Such beautiful B&W shots .... I absolutely ♥ them!
    The last shot is fantastic! My fave!
    Happy St. Patrick's Day Sista!

  3. Great job with your B&W's. BW is my editing method of choice...I have to push myself to edit more in color. I just love the simplicity and focus that emerges in BW.

  4. I love love love your B&W shots! The last one is especially beautiful. I love the nostalgic feel you captured! Happy St.Paddy's to you my dear! xo

  5. Oh Kelly, I saw your comment and had to come back for an apologie. I have been so bad lately with visiting blogs... as you know life is changing. So many moves and not time to think. But things are getting better now, and I desperately need to go back to my photography and my blogger friends.
    So, don't worry about you doing something. I love all my friends comments, no matter what, because it is the only way for me to get better.
    Thanks for the prayers.. we need them.


Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the blogging world. Your comments always put a smile on my face. Hope to see you again real soon.
