Happy accident

Yesterday was Ben’s birthday, and as we’ve done for the past couple of years, we went bowling.  Maya and I were the cheerleaders, as we both have weird shoulder issues at the moment (long story, not worth the effort) and of course I used this as an excuse to take a lot of photos in the somewhat dimly lit space that is Bowl-Mor lanes.

This is one of the pics I took of Maya:

It’s a good photo, I think.  (Those eyes!)  I liked how the red of her hat was almost but not quite the same shade of red as the booth in which she sat.  But I wondered how this photo would read in black and white.  Normally all you have to do is completely de-saturate the photo in editing mode to make it monochromatic, but when I did that, this is what happened:

All the reds are gone, but everything else remained.

And I kind of love it.

About Amy

Amy Milstein was born and raised on a farm in Indiana, but after 20+ years considers herself a full-fledged New Yorker. She is married with two kids, who do not go to school but are instead life learners. This means they learn by living in the world (real life ) instead of hearing about it and simulating it in a classroom. With her family, Amy loves to travel, read, watch movies, write, sew, knit - the list is endless.
