Monochrome Madness: Week 41

This week was a struggle. I guess with Christmas coming up our time is stretched to other things we do not normally do.

Being time challenged I delved into the archives for a picture that I thought might come up nicely in black and white. I chose St Peters Basilica in Rome with a picture of the ceiling with its amazing arches at different levels and angles and the patterned ceiling. It comes up quite interestingly in black and white which shows the architecture at its best with the curves and patterns standing out.

For some wonderful black and white photos go to Leanne Cole’s blog where she and Laura Macky host this wonderful challenge.
