'Round about sunset, maybe an hour after the rain had stopped, I was walking towards the rock gym and admiring the gorgeous play of pale gold and paler blue in the sky above me. Although I'd already taken "today's photo", I whipped out my phone in an attempt to capture the clouds. And by whipped out, I mean fumbled around with it because I was wearing gloves and waiting to cross at the crosswalk. To my frustration, however, through the screen the whole scene appeared so blown out I couldn't see any color at all. I'd have tried again, but in that moment the cross light turned green, so I tucked my phone away and chalked it up to, "You can't get good sunrise/set shots with your phone."
As it turns out, somewhere in my fumbling I must have hit a setting, because the reason I didn't capture any color was because I'd taken a black and white photo. Which I discovered when I finally looked at it, three hours later.
And damned if I didn't like it just exactly the way it was.
