Dramatic Black and White

Today, over at the focus is on B&W.

I am not sure that this falls into the "dramatic" category but I am positive it is B&W. I took this picture about the time I was starting to experiment with aperature and shutter speed. Not knowing anything about either - I feel like I got lucky. I love the movement in this picture as well as the unbridled joy of a little girl swinging. Today my wish for all you is to feel that joy for at least one moment of your day.

Focusing on Angles

This week over at the challenge is all about angles.
In anticipation of this week - I turned my camera a bit yesterday and came up with this. The problem I encountered was ... with my speedlight in the shoe - the flash bounces in strange and unpredictable ways. Imagine that ... something unpredictable in photography !!!

What a fun and interesting idea - thanks for planting yet another seed.
