My World Tuesday - Reno



(Click on photo for larger view)

Looking down the Truckee River towards downtown Reno and the Carson Mountain Range.

This photo was part of my first attempt at shooting monochrome, using Kodak BW400CN film..

It just seemed to suit the mood of the day as the season was just changing from winter to spring and there was a storm coming in..

Now, go to MY WORLD TUESDAY where people from all over our globe , show off their little corner of the world !

ALERT !!!! Many of you may be having problems opening Blogs when using Internet Explorer. Apparently the Followers widget is the cause. Go to this post by Speedcat Hollydale and get an explanation on how to fix it.

As a result, my Followers widget, is now in the footer of my blog page.

Even though you may not be using IE yourself, some of your visitors may be, which means less visits to your blog if they cannot open it!

That is truly a beautiful shot! There are several memes of monochrome, if you care to keep up this genre.
I don' t envy you the film camera, unless you are going to process your own photos...I love being able to take thousands of shots and only keeping a few without it costing a fortune!

That's a beautiful photo - doesn't look like Reno at all - you must be getting the hang of it now.

I never use IE - too much spyware and problems - Mozilla much better.

Kat said...

Film. I remember loving the look of black and white...but not wanting everything in black and white...and trying to figure out when to use it!

And thanks for the explorer tip. I was having trouble last week. I wonder if it's fixed now...

LadyFi said...

That photo is stunning, especially when magnified. I like the feel of the monochrome.

Anya said...

It looks very lovely :)

EcoRover said...

Wow, very retro and cool. Trying to remember who had a song about the Truckee--Arlo Guthrie, mebbe?

Ebie said...

You made a good choice using monochrome. And a lovely composition, too.

Glennis said...

Thanks for the alert notice.
I really prefer coloured photos, but that is just me.
Your picture is nice i like the rocks in the river leading your eye to the bridge.
