A black and white night…

Like many people in the world today, I struggle with bouts of insomnia.  The magic hour for me is usually right around 4:00 a.m.  My eyes spring open and I lay there in the dark staring at the ceiling thinking, “WTF!  Not again.”  Normally, I just pick up whatever book I’m reading and read for a while.  Between five minutes and an hour later, I am back in dreamland.   But now and then, it just doesn’t work.  I can’t shut my mind off and I just have to get up.  That happened to me the other night.  I decided to get up and work on editing some photos…a practice I find very relaxing.  In the light of day, I checked out what I did the night before and here is what I saw:


I almost deleted it without a thought.  To me it looks like an illustration out of an Edgar Allen Poe story or something sinister like that.  But I guess, I was just in the mood for black and white in the middle of the night because I did a couple more, although these seem a little cheerier.



Personally, while I have nothing against black and white photography, I really like color.
  So here’s to a good night’s sleep!

Black and white photography is more artistic I think and I like some of it but prefer colour too. I do like the single leaf photo. I hope you get some better sleeps.

Now, I don't know if I could choose between B&W and color...I guess I would go with color, but I sure think B&W is better for some things. LIke your last shot...I totally love it and don't think color could ever have been this good.

I guess it is a good thing we don't all like the same things...it would be a boring old world.

An authentic designer leather bag is made by the original designer from genuine leather isabel marant. A glossy or very even surface often means the bag is fake isabel marant. The designer leather handbag or designer leather purse will display the designers logo and will be part of the original design. Tags, signatures, or marks stating the designers name form an integral part of the bags overall design and authenticity.
An authentic designer leather bag is generally lined with good stitching and will normally be supplied wrapped in tissue paper with a leather dust bag and possible a box from the designer. Its important that the box or bag the item comes in is neither too big nor too small, and is of the same brand. Luxury designers do not pack their merchandise into small boxes or flimsy dust bags..

3. Know which shoes to wear for that dress. You do not have a fashion model to know what shoes you will wear for a particular dress isabel marant sneakers. Sometimes, it only takes a little bit of common sense. The decision to wear flats, heels, pumps or peep shoes will depend on what dress you will wear. At times, all of these can go with one dress so the choice will depend on the occasion. 4 isabel marant sales..
