When is black and white not black and white? One time is in this photograph, which I took with my camera in normal color mode and which I did not convert after the fact to black and white. I used a shutter speed of 1/640 sec. to freeze most of the motion in this temporarily turbulent branch of Bull Creek in my northwestern Austin neighborhood on January 26. Notice how at this split second a bubbling wall of water stood up from the surface of the creek at the base of the small waterfall you can glimpse in the upper left.


The daily posts that you’ve become accustomed to will continue while I’m away from Austin. Feel free to comment if you like, but please be aware that it may be a while before I can respond.
