Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Shadows (from the past)

Another image from an old slide…somewhere in France, twenty years ago… I love the shadow play here, but it needs a person in that pool of light at the back, a la Cartier Bresson…… So, converted to monochrome to give a little hint of the Film Noir, and you can imagine that person, entering from the left….

  1. It does indeed make the viewer anticipate the arrival of someone in the opening at the back.
    Nice work, Sue, and very suitable for black and white.
    Best wishes, Pete.

      If it was me taking that image now, I would lurk until someone came into shot! But I was young and naive, and never wanted people in my images!

  2. Oh yes. It’s that man in the mac with his collar turned up, and a haunted look in his eye 🙂

  3. Sue, nice and dramatic photo this week. 😀 😀

    Love the processing to heavier blacks. Indeed, I’m ready for someone like Harry Lime to appear from around the corner.
