You Capture: Happy and B&W Wednesday

Mr. Pony bought me madeleine pans over 1.5 years a while ago, and I've been a bit lax in using them. As in I've made them once. Oops. Last weekend I made them for him again {using this amazing recipe}, and it made him ridiculously happy. They were quite pretty, both pre and post cooking, but I honestly wasn't given a chance to photograph them after they were cooked- Mr. P had 3 cookies in his mouth before you could say 'yum'. I guess that means I should make them again soon!

And yes, I know it is Thursday. I *might* be running a little late on a lot of stuff! I took this shot last May while we were in Venice. I hadn't started shooting in manual yet, and seriously every photo I got at this moment (I took 10) was on the wrong setting and they all turned out blue! Switching it to black and white lets the beauty of the gondolas finally show!

I like both photos. I've messed up with white balance too. You can try to warm it up with your processing software, especially if you shoot raw.

Anyway, I'll be stopping over here again soon. Great work!

Beautiful black and white. You know what...I've never had a madeleine. Should I admit to that?
