And on the photographic front, here are some monochrome images for your consideration. These are grayscale versions of recent travel pics. They were created using Canon Digital Photo Professional; with brightness and contrast adjustments accordingly. Converted to grayscale, and then twisted the knobs until each looked artsy. Are they "true" black and white photos, since they weren't shot as such? Probably not. Back in the day-- or, for that matter, for most of the history of the medium-- such photography was the product of (a.) monochrome film, (b.) an eye to contrast (and other considerations) when shooting, and (c.) an expert hand during developing. How do these photos compare with the results of film photography? No idea. That's a future step. Learning what the heck I am doing. For now, enjoy the photos.
