The previous B/W photo (1-04-06) of the young boy sleeping was taken with an Olympus E-300 digital camera in color and converted to B/W with some adjustments in Photoshop. It was also cropped. I prefer photographing B/W with film, but sometimes a digital photo works well in B/W converted from color. Above is a photo from the same location, Bonfante Gardens in Gilroy CA, of the sleeping boy's brother. Same camera and cropped. These were taken with an Olympus 40-150mm digital lens. These boys are delightful and I enjoy taken their photos. They are the grandchildren of good friends. I usually don't photograph strangers in a public venue, except if it is at a wedding or social event.
