Black and White Wednesday

The weather outside is still between seasons.  The occasional pop of color from daffodils and crocuses give hope over the brown grass and gray sky.  The rain (and dare I say it, occasional snowflake) have kept folks inside.  Although, the trees truly have sprouted itty biity leaves in just the last few days.

I am waiting patiently for a lovely day to take some more little person photos.  My friend Amy and Baby A are up for more portrait fun, as soon as Mother Nature gets the parks back in shape for us!  This time I have some idea what my camera can do, which it a huge step forward from the first time around.  Luckily, with a kid this cute, she does all the work.

In the meantime, I've gotten the spring cleaning bug, which means there are boxes, piles, and bags strewn about the place.  No artistic pictures to be had inside right now either.  It's a bit of a holding pattern. 

 

However, one bonus to not-so-colorful skies, is natural black and white.  I took this in later afternoon light.  I would say sun, but you can see that would be a stretch.  I ended up liking it very much after some cropping for effect.

An all natural monochrome, and a beautiful one. We're getting snow as I write this but it won't last long this time of year. It'll be monochrome in the morning :-)
