Wordless B&W Wednesday: the Cat says "Cheese!"
summary: Ontario Blue Cheeses; entry for Black and White Wordless Wednesday; experimenting with sepia and black & white on a colour image. I've said it once; I'll say it again: it's not easy taking photos when there is a resident furry black fiend. (Photos taken on FujiFilm S3100 digital camera. Then using Irfanview, I upped the contrast on the b&w image and added 2G and 10B. Then to create the sepia version, I altered the colour again by adding 25R, 7G and -15B)
