The world in black and white

It's June! The official start to summer happens later this month, and things all around are bursting with color.

But before we move on to the riotous colors of summer, I want to share a few black and white images from recent weeks. I love color, but I find myself drawn to black and white more and more these days. Perhaps it's because I've been spending more time photographing urban landscapes--pseudo street photography if you will. And shooting and editing on my iPhone makes it so easy to create great black and white conversions. My Polaroid pack camera got a workout this winter, too, with black and white film replacing the standard color. There's something about black and white that takes away some of the distraction and lets you see a scene differently.

Speaking of seeing differently, here are some links that might help change your creative perspective:
  • If you don't already have the VSCO cam app, download it now! There's an update today that's well worth the download...and it's free! If you already have the app, download the new one to see all the new features. 
  • Check out this new e-course on collaboration offered by the lovely Xanthe.  It would be a perfect summer project for you and your family.
  • And the dynamic duo of Meredith and Kristin have spots open in their self-portrait workshop, Now You. Take a look!
  • By the way, I'm a new contributor at Words to Shoot By! Please visit and enjoy the lovely words and images there.
