I know – I KNOW. Most Texans would probably agree that turning those beautiful blue blooms that sprout forth from the Texas soil every spring in to black-and-white photos is a sin…not unlike confessing that you prefer any brand of ice cream over Blue Bell. At the very least, you may get kicked out of Texas or have your Texas drivers license revoked.
But hear me out: I can’t help it.
I have to do my thang…even if it’s not typical (it never is)..even if it’s not popular (I’m sure it’s not!)…even if it gets me kicked out of Texas (but hopefully not).
I like bluebonnets in black and white. There I said it. And I’m proud to say it.
But before you oust me, just let me say that I am a HUGE fan of color, and the majority of my bluebonnet pics are in bold, bright, yummy color. But there’s just something about how dramatic they look in black-and-white, that I had to play around a bit.
This one hour sunset session yielded close to 80 images. I turned 25 of them black-and-white, and I’m just in awe of how different a story they tell than their in-color siblings. For fun, this post is just going to be the black-and-white images. My next post will be all of the color ones from the very same session. And maybe just maybe after seeing both, you’ll come to appreciate the black-and-white’s as much as you appreciate the color versions! 🙂
