Ive been looking through the wonderful blogs that I follow and can honestly say that there are some simply stunning black and white images, so much so that they have inspired me to look a little closer and experiment with converting from colour. So, seeing as it has been a total washout of a weekend with some of the worst weather I have seen in a while I have recruited some models from my kitchen to work on! I have added the original colour image as well as the black and white version, again editing is not my forte or my preference but in this case I quite like the fact that the highlights and edges of the water droplets are really lifted against the contrasting darker areas, yet the original softness of the subject remains…ps Ive added a few images today seeing as I missed yesterday!!!

Those of you who live in Britain understand the randomness of our weather which provides us with an endless supply of conversations, mainly about the rain, or the lack of it! But there is something quite magical about the place after its rained, the smell of the earth, damp and rich, the clean feel to the place, and the flora seems to be somewhat more perky! I love the way the droplets settle on leaves and flowers, gathering and pooling, running off or dripping to the ground under the pull of gravity. The heads of the tulips in todays post bowed under the added weight of the droplets, bending down to take a look at the ground, no longer upright and worshipping the sun!
