A personal quest to take one picture every day, and write at least 100 words for an entire year.
What Am I Doing Here?
This is my attempt to take one picture every day for an entire year. So far, so good . . . .

It's amazing what a black and white shot can do to a picture. I took this sitting in the chair watching the children attacking their Easter baskets. I converted this shot to black and white, tweaking the blue and red channels a bit for the background. The magenta channel seemed to effect the skin tones. The overall effect gave the shot more of a 50's element.
I'm noticing that a lot of the time, Picasa takes the detail down a bit when it publishes the photo. I'm not surprised by that - just disappointed a little. I may need to work out some alternate settings here. . . .
