Monochrome photos always fascinated me. But I hesitated to use the monochrome feature of my camera. Using that function forces me to spend more time evaluating the light, the shadows, the background/foreground, and other factors I would rely on my digital camera when snapping shots in color.
But one Sunday, I took the bull by the horns. I switched the camera mode to Manual and explored the world of monochrome photography.
I had enough of the cemetery and walked to the park. I spotted a statue of a woman basking in the sunlight. I couldn't resist. A chance to work with light and shadows.
The plants and trees in the park diverted my attention from the nude woman on a pedestal. What hidden mysteries could I unearth by closeups? I spent more time examining the plant and the tree before my finger pressed down on the shutter button.
