White Trees in Cerritos

I don't shoot black and white often. This afternoon was a black and white day. The sun was setting after a long period of rain; the trees were wet and black, the flowers stark white. I overexposed to push the saturation, and then shot in black and white.

On another note: I hate these trees. I get a headache every time they bloom. The whole friggen city is in bloom now - My head hurts. In a few days, the white petals will fall like snow.

I love B&W, it is my favorite type of photography. I need to buy a new camera. Today was the perfect day too. It was foggy and the trees were filled with 10's of thousands of bird that the trees looked like they were in bloom. It was so eerie and beautiful at the same time.
