Black and White Wednesday

Another shot from the weekend events, a natural black and white photo of the flags.
(Okay, there is a hint of color in the one flag, I just didn't have the heart to edit it out).





















The clouds came over before a colorful sunset, but the silhouette was moving all the same. 
I took this with the lens facing west and into the remaining sun.  I also lowered myself and the camera to shoot upward.  I have to admit, it took a few tries to get both the look I wanted and a photo without people walking by!  There are certainly some bonus challenges to shooting in real life and not a studio.

I'm hoping to get to a park full of roses tomorrow.  The weekend events and 90 degree temps slowed me down a little. I can't wait to see what kind of blooms I find this year.

M.E.
