Ahh.. Texas sunsets!.. can't beat 'em. The bright oranges, reds, violets, and blues all mixed together. What a sight. A few nights ago, I went outdoors and was lucky enough to grab this shot of the sunset behind our outdoor lights. Natural light and man-made lighting in a blend of colors that breathes peace to my heart and mind.
Over the past few months I've intentionally focused on a different form of photography. Mainly, black & white in 8x10 format. The reason being has been to put myself into a different mode because, like all good things in our life, we get set into habits and miss the greater picture. That's what happened to me with my photography. I needed to 'mix it up'..
Black and white has a way of telling a story that color somehow misses. It strips down the image to just light and shadow. After all, that's what photography is all about; the capture of light. Black and white sets a mood and, in art circles, has it's genre which some of the best photographers rely on almost exclusively.
It's been a great 30 days but, moving forward, I'll be doing a mix of different styles all focused on what my eye, and heart, are seeing in the world around us. I hope you enjoy today's shot and thank you for stopping by..!..
