This week I played with my Pentax waterproof point and shoot. It seemed appropriate to do an ocean theme since I bought it for my first snorkeling adventure in Mexico. Since there was no opportunity to go snorkeling in Vancouver this week, I settled for some shots of sea shells and sea stars. Then I decided to do some black and white work. Working in black and white is a fascinating process. You have no idea how many varied effects you can get from one photo until you start playing with contrast and filters.
