Street / 19

For a complete contrast to my recent photographs of beautiful flowers, here’s another street photography scene from Sicily this time converted to monochrome. Black & White gives me the gritty feel and also a timelessness that I was looking for:

  1. I so adore this black and white. Gorgeous!

  2. Emilio Pasquale

    So much better than silly flowers! 🙂 Nice and gritty. And timeless. Just a great shot with perfect processing.

      Oh, thanks Emilio!! Silly flowers happen to brighten up my day, but I know what you mean!! Glad you like this, and thanks for the comment re processing 😀

  3. That’s a lovely shot Sue! 🙂

  4. Love the texture of the cobbles street.

  5. This is classical street photography. It could have been taken by Cartier-Bresson. Very nice Sue.

  6. I like this B&W picture very much! a lot of atmosphere…

  7. Very nice Sue, like a still from a 1960s Italian film. My kind of thing.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  8. Super, Sue! I could easily have it on my wall. Atmosphere and perfect in B&W

  9. A very strong and moody image Sue! 😀 The lines leading to the walking men are just perfect!

  10. Yes, it looks great in B&W. A timeless street scene, Sue

  11. Yes, I like this too. 🙂 (and I like your silly flowers)

  12. Lots of texture and character in this one Sue

  13. As an echo, steps fade away into the distance and the street recovers its eerie silence.

  14. I agree with Otto 🙂
