Some Pictures Just Work Better in B&W


It has been hot and I haven’t been out much nor have I thought of anything to photograph; so I have used my time to research cameras and lenses and to work on seeing what I can do with older pictures that I have taken.

The above picture originally had a solid blue sky with a mix of various colored bricks in the buildings and I never liked it much.  I don’t think I have shown it before, but I may have.  I ran across it while I was looking through older pictures to try to figure out what was the best focal length lens for me to use whenever I get around to going back to town to make some more pictures.  For those who might be interested, the effective 35mm of the Fujifilm X100 worked nicely for this picture.

I like this style for this picture since it emphasizes the texture of the bricks and the old character of the building without over-whelming the viewer with the vivid colors of the sky and bricks.

PS … you may have noticed that a while back I disabled the “like button” at the end of my articles since I never learned much from the like clicks.  If you like, or don’t like, something in particular about an article or picture, you can comment.

    You are right, much more interesting in B & W. I will have to google the company so I can lean more about it.
