Red Leaf in Black & White

Over at tookapic I've been mostly shooting close-up nature shots this week. Today I had a couple of shots I could have posted, so I had one left over to post on the old blog. Work has been extremely demanding this past week in terms of time and mental energy, so not much else happened beyond the minimum requirements of my one-a day project.

The Stairs at the End of the Tunnel

In a part of the neighborhood that already does not feel particularly safe...

EDITED: Didn't like the sepia tone after a while...

Leaf in Patchwork

Makeshift patch-up repairs to footbridge across a railway.  Only a matter of time before they shut it down entirely and rebuild.

I'm on a black & white kick at the moment. I set my camera on monochrome and walked around in the light rain today for hours trying to "see" in black & white. I don't want to commit to any specific period of time for this, but I expect to reverse the usual routine of shooting in color and then converting occasionally to B&W as an afterthought.

I'm also maintaining two other photo posting sites and trying to keep the content unique on all three, with only sporadic overlap.

Instagram - not so serious, but I still try to maintain some quality standards.
Tookapic - daily photos for the 365 challenge.

Tookapic gets priority these days because it's a commitment to daily posting, and sometimes for several days in a row I struggle (hence the "challenge") to find or create even one decent picture to post.
