About the Book
Everybody uses a digital camera these days, and sensors capture images in color. It's easy enough to convert color images to black-and-white, but the trick is picking just the right images. I went through my entire collection of Mt. Tam images to find the ones that I felt "worked" in b&w. There's something special about a black-and-white image. It forces the viewer to see what might have been a familiar image in an unfamiliar way. In this collection, there are black-and-white landscapes, wildlife and macro subjects. Although everyone has seen b&w landscape photos reaching back to the beginnings of photography, wildlife in b&w is a little less common, and macro subjects even more uncommon. Take a peek. See nature a little more raw, a little more graphically, in black-and-white. The hardcover version is printed on Blurb's best paper; the softcover version is on their regular paper. Like my other book, this one is offered at the same cost I myself have to pay to get one.
