When Colors Fade to Black and White...

In Wisconsin, this time of year after the beautiful leaves have fallen, it feels like an old black and white photo outside.  Seeing the change of the season brings a little sadness to all. I will miss the colors...I am so lucky to have colors around me all day, when I am quilting.
I took some photos with my camera set on black and white.  I took a few with the Chrome Color setting on to brighten the few colors that were left!  

Isn't that amazing.  There were some blooms left.
But no blooms here...
There is a little green left here...






How about a fried green tomato?
Looks a little better with the Chrome Color setting on the camera.
I will set the camera on Chrome Color for the rest for the photos, so we can enjoy the last blooms of the season.

Or go back in the house and quilt!
May you enjoy your last blooms of the season...

Fascinating play on color. I was taught to use my gray scale to photo a group of fabrics to be sure their color hues don't mute. If they are muddy in grey then they will be washed out in color.

We used to have a black and white TV before... now, old movies in B&W is a bore to me.

Great perspective on fall and glad there's a bit of color left! Here in NZ, we're finally getting into spring.

Oh, you are so right. The winter drabs have finally come. They were slow to get here at least. Yes, time to go in and sew!

I feel for you since we are in glorious spring and I am having the time of my life visiting open gardens and posting on my two blogs!

This was cool. I love black and white photo of human - amazing I think it tells more of story because your eye search more. We have tons of roses still in bloom here in Rufus, Oregon - but soon they's be gone.... Awesome article..

Great post! Good to see another Wisconsinite's presentation. I am also very impressed with quilters and believe it or not, having come from a quilting family, I've often thought that I would enjoy it some time in the future when I give up some of my other passions! I always enjoy watching the quilting shows on PBS... it really is a big thing here isn't it?! Larry

These were lovely. The B/W brought out a different beauty. I really liked all your photos.

Interesting to see them in color and then in monochrome.

Nice to see you still have a few blossoms hanging on.

Happy MM
