Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #140: Black And White Photography

"There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are."

-Ernst Haas

It's time for a different perspective! A BLACK AND WHITE perspective! As always, any subject, and lighting, it's all up to you and your imagination! Run wild! I will be looking forward to what you come up with!

Extra Credit: Frame your photograph using your photo editing software.

EMPS Sunflowers... Summer Sunflowers 2010

"I tell you, the more I think, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people."

-Vincent Van Gogh

I was hoping to do a new garden of sunflowers this year, but alas it was not to be. I am still editing some of my sunflower photos from last year, but these remain my very favorites.
