One / 39

I debated a black and white or colour version of this….in the end the monochrome won. A fast-reaction image, no time to set up position, angle etc, but it has worked as I hoped. A ‘decisive moment’, caught just in time as she soon disappeared at a fast clip around a cluttered corner. I love the old building, a perfect backdrop!

Also linked to Paula’s Black & White Sunday, as there are diagonal leading lines (and other diagonals) here!

  1. Perfect. All the lines and the black and white.

  2. The Tudor building suited B&W perfectly, Sue. Nice shot.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Ellada Valerie

    Great shot ! Alsace France or Germany ?

  4. I have passed that house several times – excellent shot!

  5. This is wonderful, and the scene is more interesting with a human figure with inclined bicycle. Very nice to see you back with us, Sue.

  7. Well done Sue, I would have been too slow!

  8. Yes, Sue, the B&W white works perfectly. Such a pleasing shot!

  9. Excellent grab Sue – sometimes you have little time to react but it works out as if you’d spent days planning the shot! This was one of those times.

  10. Wonderful lines Sue! You have such a good eye.

  11. I love this photo, and the whole concept. You are one of the reasons I’m beginning to people my photos.

  12. Looks really good in B&W, Sue – Timeless.

  15. Great picture Sue – so dramatic in black and white!

  16. Nice shot. The building is perfect.

  17. Liking this one A LOT! 🙂

    How wonderful. I like the contrasting shapes and the strong diagonals.

  19. I love this shot- everything about it- the B&W, the person with bicycle, the house- all of it!

  20. I love the backdrop too!! wonderful image!

  21. Coming from a ‘new’ city I was so fascinated by all the oldness of the buildings in Denmark, and also the brightness of all the oranges, yellows and red that I never once thought to turn any of my shots to black and white. But it works so perfectly here – and creates a wonderful mood. Perfect shot…
