Sunflower Light – Monochrome Madness



A week or so ago I saw some sunflowers near our local produce stand.  I took a few pictures and processed them, one in color and one in B&W.  For today I’m posting the B&W version.

Soon I’ll be posting the color version so stay tuned!

Please check out Leanne Cole’s blog later for the entire gallery.  Thank you! OMG I am out of town and notice this posted a few days early haha. Whoops!
