I needed some air!

I finally managed to get out of the house today for some fresh air and sunshine. It felt wonderful.

The small cafe in the local natural food store that serves as my office away from home is frequently the scene of spiritual readings, and occasionally used for rehearsing plays. Sometimes the critics can be less than enthusiastic.

Panasonic GX85 with one of my favorite lenses, the Panasonic 20mm f1.7. I used the camera’s ‘L Mono’ jpeg black and white conversion and in-camera square crop.

Richmond Revisited-Again

At my own blog http://stevenwillardimages.wordpress.com I recently posted a photograph that I mined from images taken last December. In that post I took the opportunity to walk through the basic steps used to arrive at the final color image. Here is the monochrome rendering. Much as I like black and white, this is one instance where I prefer the color, but it is interesting-at least to me-how it holds up to the conversion, and how the two versions are dependent on different aspects of the image. I may print them both and hang them side by side just as an exercise.
