Black & White

I forgot that it's easy for me to take pictures in black and white.

I don't think to, but I can. Take a photo with my tablet, put a filter on it, and boom, done. Except I don't think to do so. I honestly find the sort of filters you can get on Instagram and SnapChat (give yourself a flower crown! Turn your face into that of a cat's!) a little weird and off-putting. Color filters? I avoid those nowadays, too. (I have hang-ups, I guess.) But recently I've watched friends do a project on Facebook where, for seven days, they post black-and-white shots from their lives. The project has these guidelines: "Seven Days, Seven Photos. No People, No Explanation." I thought, Why not? and, beginning last Friday, started taking pictures, changing them to black and white, and sharing them on Facebook.

I wanted to preserve them here. Most, I think all, of the shots have the Tonal filter on them: I found that showed the most detail and kept from being too dark.
