MM 2-24: A Tree and a House in Carmel

We drove down to Carmel a couple of weeks ago and during our stroll around town I came across this old tree holding up this old house. Or maybe the house was holding up the tree. Perhaps they were holding up each other. Anyway, this scene is right on Ocean Avenue, Carmel’s main street, and just a few blocks from the beach. My photo of the tree — I think it’s an old coast live oak — and house is my entry for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Challenge this week .

House and tree on Ocean Avenue, Carmel. This is my entry for Leanne Cole's Monochrome Madness 2-24.

Lately I have been using Nik Silver Efex Pro 2 to convert my color photos to monochrome but for this picture I just used Lightroom.

I took many more photos that day and will show some of them to you in the next day or two. So stay tuned. And in the meanwhile why don’t you hop over to Leanne’s blog to see what other photographers are doing in monochrome these days?

  1. PRetty amazing! I wonder if that branch on the roof isn’t going to get too heavy eventually and need to be cut/trimmed.
