AUTUMN PICNIC for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge

I am quite reluctant to turn autumn scenes into monochrome. To me, that defeats the very idea of (at least, early) autumn. Autumn is about the colors and to strip the colors and replace them with varying shades of black and gray just feels odd.

But for Cee’s challenge, I selected some photos from our recent trip to Hopkinton State Park somewhere in western Massachusetts to play around with. On that Sunday, not too many people were around to enjoy the turning leaves, and the beach and the water. The day was cloudy at times but it was a little warm for an autumn day.

The resulting black and white photos, I think, heightened the solemn mood that almost always accompany autumn.

Thank you for coming by.
