Goin' old school

I love color. What's my favorite? Dunno. Is the Moon in the Seventh House? What did I have for dinner last night? There's no rhyme or reason to what color I call my favorite at any given moment.

Color is a big part of why I knit--going into a yarn shop and being surrounded by chromatic yarn porn is my idea of a good time. There isn't a color I absolutely refuse to work with, and my stash pretty much contains the entire color wheel.

In my photography, I spend a lot of time trying to get the colors "correct." But there's something about black and white photography that just sends me. I hope you agree.

I turned the heels of my SAM KAL socks last night, so they should be finished in plenty of time. It probably won't be tonight, since I have my photography class. The class has been a blast and I'm sad it's ending, but I've learned a lot and I managed to take a few decent photos. I'm hoping we'll form a flickr group. If we do, I'll post the link.


  1. I love black and white photography! You captured that image well...

    And Flickr is lots of fun, eh?

  2. I *love* black and white photography! Nice tomato. :)

  3. I do agree. I was surprised to find that some of my favorite pictures from my wedding day (or I guess it should be "our wedding day" LOL) were the ones my friend took with b&w film.

  4. Oooh, for me, the colors are what attracts me to yarn...the immense range of natural colors, the super-saturated colors, funky hand-dyed combos etc :)

    But, there really is something about B&W photos. You see things that don't normally catch your eye when there are colors to distract you. I adore B&W people pics...some of my faves are of my kids when they were young. They have such a timeless quality to them.


A few people seem to be having problems leaving comments. I have no clue why--Blogger doesn't make it easy to figure these things out. If you are having issues, you can always email me. Thanks for commenting, or trying to...
