Normally I prefer color -- the more the better.
But using the pencil sketch thingy on Picasa made me see these photos as both more mysterious and more detailed.
Perhaps it's because I've been spending so much time (in my head) back in the mid- 1800s when, as we know from photos, life was all black and white and shades of gray. . .
Shades of Gray would have been a nice title for my work in progress -- the varying degrees of right and wrong on both sides of the Civil War massacre that's at the core of the story.
But, alas, I'm afraid with that title, folks would be expecting lots of steamy bedroom scenes.
Which are not my idiom.
