Less is more

Some images take on a totally different, stronger personality when converted to black&white. I keep telling myself that I should remember this and experiment more often.

Light and lines are two elements that usually contribute well to B&W images. An urban environment offers plenty of opportunities to discover and exploit.

Scenes containing strong graphic elements are also good candidates. You may have seen the image below before on my blog, but this B&W version seems like telling a different story…


And then there’s structure and texture. B&W brings out more of the heart and soul of materials. No further comments needed…
