Mostly I shoot color because that is the native mode of digital photography. However, I found a few scenes here that looked good in monochrome. These were shot in five different European countries.

Like them all – B&W does work for each of these. My favorite is “Bigfoot” – as I am partial to industrial images. Also the abstracts are right up there as well.

Thank you Robert. I have a few other B&W images posted from the trip simply because I did not think to organize things that way until after I had made a few posts. In the past I posted as I went, but I am transitioning to collecting everything from the trip and organizing it when I get home. It is certainly easier to edit on my fast desktop than on a much slower notebook.

Yes, when I went down to PA – I was stuck posting from my in-laws computer with DSL – very slow. Funny how we get used to a particular speed.

I enjoy the change-up. Monochrome works well for me, so thanks. I’m especially appreciative of Hobbit Hole. You captured it well.

Memorable monochromes–well done.

You could set my settings and I could stand right by you and take pictures and I still couldn’t do that. Your work is beautiful. Hobbit Hole is awesome.

I think b/w works well for these, I love the details it can bring out.

I agree, there is something romantic about black & white
August 8, 2013 at 12:35 pm
These are absolutely lovely!!

B&W quality photos, there is just something about them that make you imagine colour.

They do look very good in monochrome. I particularly like the zig zags and the Viking Burial ship.
August 8, 2013 at 11:29 pm
Thank you. Neither of those had any real color in them to start with.
Thank you for liking “Unusual Advertising Vehicles.” I enjoyed looking at the geometric patterns and shapes in these photos. I agree that these photos look great in monochrome. I think monochrome makes these patterns and shapes stand out more than they would if the pictures were taken in color. I have been a fan of your black-and-white photography ever since I saw “Gargoyle Tree,” and I look forward to seeing more of your monochrome pictures in the future. :)

Please do not be disappointed, but I do not participate in referral awards.

I totally understand! When I first looked at it I was reminded of a chain letter :)…but, I was having a bad week, so I thought I would let you all know how I felt about your support. It doesn’t need to travel further :). I love your posts/ photography!!!!

love the monochromatic look to these shots…works wonderfully well for them all! someone told me eliminating the color takes way the distractions leaving the textures, contrasts & detail…
August 9, 2013 at 7:57 pm
Heather, removing distractions is true. It is a matter of choices and it is best to stay open to all alternatives.
August 9, 2013 at 9:25 pm
Of course, it is all a choice…but being open is learning

sometimes it is as simple as black and white. always partial to stair ways – up or down.

The stairs with the statue has turned out to be a favorite.
