I was proud that I was able to have a good time and photograph at Point Reyes despite a missing item for long exposure. Not so proud to find out, when I got home, that the item had been inside my backpack all along
I like the freedom from reality that black and white gives me. In color, there is often the expectation that a scene has some resemblance with reality, and when it does not, it looks strange. In black and white, by contrast, there is no such expectation because there is no real world in black and white to use as a reference.
