Black And White #3



A couple more photos from my time in B&W photography classes when I was in college the first time in the early 80s.

Nothin' special, I guess I was in an artsy fartsy mood when taking these.

Canon AE-1 and 50mm f1.8 lens. I'm pretty sure they were on Pan-X (125 ASA), but I didn't look to see for sure when I scanned them.

Great shots. I like the closeup of the cord. Black and white is perfect for this composition.

I like artsy fartsy! I like what you did here and agree that black and white really adds to the composition. I love playing around with black and white.

I like your "artsy fartsy" mood.

The second one is my favorite.

Florida has such amazing natural lighting that I'm reluctant to go B&W...
But I like your photos - is the rope in the second one lying in the sand? Interesting texture.

there's something very evocative about BnW imagery......loved the second shot and going by the other comments it seems to win hands down..:)

Thanks everyone.

Isabella - That bottom photo is on concrete next to a swimming pool. I liked the textures of the wood bench, the rope, and the slightly rough concrete.
