Hocking Steps

Old Man Winter is fast approaching.
We have the dull, drab sky
complete with cold rain.
I know that snow is just around the corner.

This is a good time to get some Black and White.

These are the steps at Rock House.
Built during the great depression by the WPA
these lead down to the original parking lot.
Not hard to get to, just not seen by many
since they are now off the main driveway.

I did these in both B&W and color.
Different photos, not a color shot
photoshopped into B&W.

I have spent so many years in film that
I prefer to "see" in the medium that I am
using at the time.

On the Canon it is a simple matter to change
from monochrome to color, so no big thing.
Changing this way also allows me to use the
B&W filter option in the monochrome setting
rather than trying to recreate the effect later
in photoshop. I used the "orange" filter here.
