When I link up with a black and white meme on Wednesdays, I often just go over pictures I've taken throughout the week and play around with black and white conversions. I don't take pictures thinking of how they might be in black and white, and I am often surprised by which pictures I like converted and which I don't like. In fact, I think I often try black and white only after I dislike how the colors look. I hope at some time to see the black and white beforehand. Like Neo sees the code in the Matrix. :) But I love how the colors turned out in these pictures, and I love the black and white of them, too!
