So after spending all morning working on some lovely black and whites of beautiful florals, and getting a headache from banging my head on the computer screen out of frustration...I decided to scrap the whole thing and head to the archives. And just to prove that I CAN multi-task (when I WANT to), I opted for a photo to re-visit and re-edit that I could also use for a new link-up I'm joining over at The Art of Capturing the Moment which is focusing on the sky in landscape photography. And YES this was an incredible moment when I captured this cityscape and sky...so winner, winner, "poulet" dinner (DANGIT, I forgot to thaw that chicken I wanted to cook for dinner tonight).
"We'll Always Have Paris"
This was actually quite a gorgeous photo in color. The trees lining the street were a brilliant coppery orange. But what "I" saw as my focal point was the Eiffel Tower and the ominous cloud cover....both of which were naturally black/white/grey. By converting the photo to black and white, it allowed me to put the focus where I wanted it to be, without the distraction of the trees. Yes, it seems to always be rainy in Paris. But isn't it just beautifully perfect that way?
