Spring Tiptoes In—1
April 30, 2018
A week ago Sunday I looked for hints of spring and found mostly the last bits of winter, photos of which posted this past week. But I also found the barest beginnings of the usually preferred season. You may have noticed occasional spears of grass in the latest posted photographs. Here are more, to be followed by less subtle signs. Spring has advanced since these photographs were taken, but perhaps you, like me, will enjoy lingering over the early stage.
This works very well in black and white. A 🙂

Thanks, Adrian. I prefer the black and white also, but I had a perhaps foolish wish for the consistency of posting both versions, as I had with the previous two posts.

Well, in my experience, its rare for an image to look as good in, say, B+W as it does in colour, and vice versa. One of a pair of images in the two different media usually has the edge, I think. A 🙂

I think you’re right, Adrian.

I prefer the B&W version because it transcends its subject matter and takes the viewer into an entirely new and mysterious world.

Ooo, I like what you said, Alan. I would like to transcend subject matter and take the viewer into an entirely new and mysterious world—every time.

Now the color and black and white images have diverged widely. The black and white seems to have a vastly different feel. I like both, but what Alan said makes a lot of sense to me.

Thanks, Lynn. The B&W had help from Silver Efex, as you might have guessed.
