sights of life from a passerby


Redux in Black and White

Initially posted in color in April 2014, I just converted the above image into a black and white pencil sketch.

First posted in September 2012 in black and white, this Yosemite view has long been one of my favorites.

Previously in de-saturated color in December 2012, the lines and texture seem to pop better in black and white.

    • Thank you, Brian ~ I was trying to convey this famous view a little bit more as it feels to me.

  4. Donna your Yosemite picture has an ethereal quality about it. It’s a great contrast to the pictures that most of us have of Yosemite.

    • So happy it pleases you. It was such a personal choice of presentation that it might not make sense to other folks.

      • Yosemite has been photographed by so many, I doubt that there are many people in the US who don’t recognize it. However, few people see it engulfed in clouds.
