Of the blogs I follow only Thoughts in Images regularly puts in black and white images. By her wonderful photos she keeps me reminding me, I need to do that more myself. Recently a couple of her commenters remarked about how nice her monochromes were and I chimed in suggesting that she do a post some day revealing a few of her secrets. Later in the day I thought that wasn't right. I need to teach myself. And so I spent the better part of a day doing just that.
