This week, Anne Sandler has asked us to show B&W images.As she says “Some images cry out for black and white.”
I’m coming to this late in the week, and not at my computer I haven’t got access to show you the before and after. So here are just a few images that I felt worked best in monochrome.
First up, a ruined pier silhouetted against the late afternoon light, I think this works best in B&W as you concentrate on shapes (through silhouetting against the light) and textures (of the pebbly beach, the waves, the clouds) and the two figures gazing at the structure:
Now for more ruins, as these are my favourite subjects, and here it’s definitely about shapes and shadows and textures to create drama, which would not be so evident in a colour image, as we are distracted by the colour:
And finally, some decaying flowers where black & white can give us textures in the petals
