And, ya know, it's kind of how I am feeling this morning
For those of you who are interested. I did not do anything special to create this black and white.
I just de-saturated. That's all.
I have purchased and used several different black and white actions and have loved many of them.
But at the workshop (Audrey Woulard), Audrey told us she just desaturates!
I was honestly surprised. And very curious to go back to this super simple and free step to create black and whites.
And for this picture I like it a lot.
Those freckles are pretty important to keep and this method kept those freckles.
Pretty cool, huh?
I learned that your process and editing and business can be kept simple if you want it to be that way.
And boy, does that speak to me.
Cause if I wasn't the Quiet Life, I would be the Simple Life ;o)
I say, if your knees aren't green by the end of the day, you ought to seriously re-examine your life.

...the powerful play goes on, and you will contribute a verse.
~Walt Whitman, "O Me! O Life!", Leaves of Grass
Give us Lord, a bit o' sun,
A bit o' work and a bit o' fun;
Give us all in the struggle and sputter
Our daily bread and a bit o' butter.
~From an inn in Lancaster, England
Life is like a ten-speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never use.
Only a few things are really important.
Enjoy your important things this weekend!
