Monochrome Madness Week 32

Last year I was lucky enough to go to France and visit the seaside areas of Normandy.  One such place was Honfleur, picture perfect with cobblestoned streets and a port.  This city which is so full of character is on the southern bank of the estuary of the Seine where it meets the English Channel.

This photo, although I thinks its perfect in colour, I feel lends itself to black and white which shows the texture and shapes of the buildings.  Ive put up a poll but I think I know what the outcome this week will be.

  1. I think black and white is better. It’s incredible how tall and thin the houses are — very picturesque too!

  3. B&W for me, too. The color is very pretty though, especially that bright blue boat on the right.

  4. I’ve gone for the black and white – they each have quite a different atmosphere about them


  5. I voted for the color, but for me it was a close call because I really, really like both of them, Kaz. In the thumbnails I preferred the B&W, but when I enlarged them, the color one won out…

  8. I didn’t vote because you had no option for both. lol
    I love them both but for entirely different reasons. The monochrome is striking and highlights the architecture but the colour shares the beauty of the place and is pleasing to the eye. 🙂

  9. Okay, so I’m in the minority choosing color, but the reason is that we have a family picture with the background of that lovely port city boasting all its wonderful colors. That’s what I remember, so I just can’t not picture it that way! In any event, I love your photos because they bring back wonderful memories of my visit to Normandy – a trip I would take again in a heartbeat!
