Monochrome photography with a touch of natural color

Picture of the Moment

When I was growing up, color movies and television were not quite mainstream yet. I watched initial episodes of “I Dream of Jeannie” and “Bewitched” in black & white, but being was oh-so-happy when we got a color television and the shows also were in color. After all, the world is in color.

So while I’m not really into black & white photography, or “monochrome” as it seems to be called today, I do occasionally find the really interesting picture that is basically black & white but has a little color thrown in to make things interesting.

Such as this picture:

Rental sailboats

I loved the overcast sky creating dull gray sand and water, contrasted by a slight pinkish tinge in the low sky from the sunset, the green fronds of the palm trees, and those beautiful rental sail boats.

    Beautiful image. Those sails are gorgeous, really drawing the eye in. Lovely pastel tones to the sky, and those palms- such a serene image.

    I love the muted colours of grey days and clouded twilight. I’m a fairly over-cast, puddle-filled muddy pot-hole of a person, I fear, and I tend to see most things in various gradients of grey. Living in a place of boundless, vitative colour like Florida does create a bit of a peculiar contrast 😉

    Another excellent post. Jubilant cheers,
