Trying to master B&W

There's just something about a black&white image. I don't know what it is but the power of a good conversion really makes them stand out. Colorful images don't look the same after you've seen a black and white version of it. It's also easier hiding unnecessary messiness in the backgrounds.

What do you think???

Raining... raining.... and raining some more.

Rain brings out creativity. In my case creativity usually transfers into cleaning and re-organizing forgotten corners of my apartment. Add the morning project and I think I came up with few images that represent my little home. Granted it truly NEVER gets cleaned ( by then I mean I usually leave some tasks behind ) but if I don't trip over stuff on the floor I'm happy with the work I did.

I also added a little desk that really made me happy. It's very narrow so it doesn't add to all this mess but it's big enough to fit what I need. My mac and my wacom fit - what else could I ask for??

Hopefully this will let you peek into my little world - it's nothing special but it's all about the details right? One day when I move to my big mansion with dining room and marble kitchen counter I'll think of this place with some sentiment...... ehhhh....... LOL.

Ps. Have you noticed that everything about my apt. is little accept for the BIG mess :)

The morning project.

Let me start by saying that I'm NOT a morning person. Trust me - I'm just not. I have my coffee while ALex watches Tv and for a good hour I'm just not there yet. But there has been a big turnaround lately to how I wake up and what I think about as I open my eyes.

Few friends from 2peas's forum gathered together and started a project where photographers from all over post a picture that lets us peak into their mornings. I'm part of it and so proud of the company I got to be around over there. You should check it out. It's interesting how different mornings can be.

It also brought some sunlight to my house. I don't plan on what kind of a shot I'm going to take. I just let the morning be what it is and try catching that little moment that could show what it really looked like - well the first day I posed my composition, but don't say anything.

This one was a total snapshot.

And a Morning Project link for you!
