"Drawing in Black & White" (4-21-14 003v6) is another made out of the same original pic I posted versions from yesterday. Viewing this one starts me yearning to draw again. It's been many, many years since I've sketched anything (long before I started taking pix). And my style was generally rather detailed (fussy some might say) as this photo is. Maybe I'll pick up a pencil or pen again some day. But I suspect I no longer have the kind of dexterity for it. I tried calligraphy a while back and as I'd feared my hand just wasn't steady enough anymore. Then again maybe I'm just making excuses for not taking a chance. Who knows? I could develop a different way of drawing, a more relaxed one even. However, none of this has anything to do with this photo. It puts me in mind of old etchings. A resemblance I tried to emphasize by increasing the contrast a bit (after using other sorts of filters as well).
