There’s Beauty In Black And White

“Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize
the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.”
- Robert Frank -


Today is another very busy day for me, so I leave you with very few words and some photographs in black and white. One of my favourite photo themes. It makes for very dramatic images.











Have a wonderful day, everyone!

  3. The do not block laneway place looks like an awesome place for a police chase in a tv show! That poor house has taken waterfront the the extreme. Love your shot of the rock on the beach, and the bridge photo above the house.

  7. Great b&w shots. Love the one of the sunken barn. The reflection is terrific. Yes, b&w has a special feel and look which emphasized the composition of the photo.

    1. I love that we have digital cameras now. You can take as many photos as you'd like without spending a dime. Film used to really add up!

    1. That building falling into the water is a favourite. Every year it sinks in a little more. I'm curious to see where it's at now.

  14. My favourite is the horse.

    Black and White Photography portraits can look good too - the light and shade - makes for a great photograph.

    All the best Jan
