2014, Day 289 - King crab

My buddy Jay pointed out this cactus when we went to the nursery today because he liked the single flower.  What I liked was the texture, it looks like the spiny legs of king crab but I suspect the flavor is quite different.

Today, for my final image, I challenge Francene Grewe; five days, five black and white photos, and issue to challenge to a new person on each of the five days.

  1. I came upon your website by way of a link made by Nicole Young's article "Photographers: Don’t Ignore the Ordinary" on Photofocus.

    The more I fiddle with photography as a hobby the more I find myself intent on B&W and less on color. As so many much more qualified than I have said, it is a different seeking of images.

    And with the seeking comes the post-processing to arrive at what was in the mind(eye?) of the photographer. Although I don't think the post processing is the center of the pleasure I derive from having obtained an image that is akin to what I sought I do find the effort in front of the computer rewarding as I tinker and adjust. (I suppose I could be wrong on what is the 'center of the pleasure.)

    All that I do in the way of post processing is done with Photoshop Elements, V12. I limit myself to this. I am always interested in what others use for B&W. Would you speak to this question?

    Most sincerely,
