Building in Black & White

Photo 101 topic for the day is architecture. And to consider how it will translate to black and white. Today it was wicked cold and windy. I took the easy way out and dipped into the archives. I prefer to shoot in black and white as opposed to converting like I did here but the archives are very thin when it comes to black and white. I need to figure out how to convert my old negatives to digital. These are the two I liked best.

These are the Days Cottages in North Truro, Cape Cod. The picture was taken in summer but making it monochromatic makes it feel colder.

  1. I really like the ones with all the little houses in a row. I like the lines and perspective. It’s simple and neat. The top ones just seem too complicated to me. I’m not sure which I like best, the color and BW are both nice. I think I’ll have to say the BW wins out, just for the simplicity of it.

  2. The reason I scarcely ever enter photo ‘challenges’ is that all the photos I use are Chic’s; and there’s a limit to the relevance I can find. Yours are great, Megz !
