And I must say I'm so thankful for that decision! I had so much fun taking photos! I must shout from the rooftops, THANK YOU LISA! Oh, the inspiration B&W Wednesdays gave me!
The world looks so different in black and white. Broken down to the core, you find emotion in things you don't expect. Like a tree or a creek. I was looking at the world differently and finding photo opportunities that I normally don't see. It was simply an awesome experience.
I am very grateful.
So below is a combo entry for B&W Wednesday and You Capture (as well as Wordish Wednesday) . The theme Beth chose for You Capture this week is Technology.
I'll be honest. I wasn't feeling very inspired by this topic at first. I tried pictures of my cellphone, the new tv, the computer. Nothing felt right. Until the inspiration from B&W came in. Suddenly, technology looked more interesting.
Then I remembered a piece of technology I use almost everyday for a math class I'm taking. A calculator! And this is no ordinary calculator! This thing is a portable computer! USB ports, applications to download. And I thought the TI-82 I had in high school was complex. This frustrating piece of technology, once figured out, makes my life easier. Which is the whole point of technology, right?
I share this, just because I like the lighting. :)
Where would I be without this technology? While I want to upgrade, this camera has been so good to me and helped me capture some wonderful memories :)
