Postcard from Ooty, India – ww

This week I have joined a photo club in the town I live. Each member brings a picture corresponding to the theme of the month. This month the theme was black and white with color and 20×20. Here is the picture I took with me: a postcard from Ooty, India.

Next time I should print the picture in real photo paper and use a passe-partout. I love the idea of printing the pictures as i don’t do it so often.

    Great photo! I don’t print enough of my photos out either, I have several albums with photos from my old travels, but not much recently since it’s now all on my HDD. I think the B&W with a dash of colour works well with this photo!

      I loved Ooty too, after being three weeks working in Bangalore it was nice to have less chaos and “cold” weather 🙂

    A photo club is such a cool idea. Is this a photo you took yourself, or must you find it somewhere?

      th eoriginal picture was in color. I used gimp (free program) to change the picture to black and white: first select whatever should remain in color, control+I to inverse the selection and then change the saturation. Quite easy, just the selection takes time 🙂

      I can imagine that in big cities it’s not easy to see (and to sell) tea from the station, there’s always someone waiting.
