This week I delved into my archives to a picture I took last year when we were in Brighton. Not the best day, a bit dull in fact. The only colour was the stripes on the deck chairs and not much excitement. I thought hmm wonder what it looks like in black and white.
Once I altered it, the whole photo changed I feel anyway, in colour its a bit drab, nothing much to look at but in B&W it became more interesting, the lines, the stones… I felt it came alive.
So a picture that was relegated to the back of the bunch suddenly looks a whole lot better in monochrome. Well that’s my impression anyway.
Please go to the Monochrome Madness challenge this Wednesday, on Leanne Cole’s blog to view some very interesting black and white photos for week 28. This challenge is run by the hard working Leanne Cole and Laura Macky.
