Black And White Positive Negative

I thought that a foray into black and white wouldn't be good really for me at the minute being a rather down ( depressed ) you would have thought I would what to surround myself in myriads of colours. Tripping my self on a light fantastic rainbow but no I am dabbling with black and white and it is not to jump in any bandwagon, it is something I have dabbled with from time to time.


I think with back and white you can see the crispness of architecture and the lines of past formalities and coming from a conservation background ( though ) I have never worked in this field I hold a dear love of architecture, and I do hold a university qualification in this field.


Ordinarily one might take a picture in colour and then alter in pic monkey but I decided to shot some pictures in raw black and white with my Panasonic, I will get out later this week and have a go with the Nikon.


I am grateful and respectful that have helped and taught me in the ways of photography, the thing you see I know what know what I am doing , not all the technical gubbins there is always more to learn I feel and you never stop learning. I feel what I do , I feel it, I see it , I take the shot there will be the obvious feet shot if I am on my iPhone but I compose myself and that is leading to inner calm.


People say I am good at photography ?! I am awfully modest I do what I do because I love it and I won't ever stop loving it. Not being one for emotion and trying to quantify why has gone off recently I am finding my way.

Black and white is the positive negative , I do so hope you will stay with me for the long haul.






The lodge of a long forgotten manor.
The village church in black and white

I love lanes they draw you on!

  28. Love all of the photos, especially the one of the lane - the light in that is just so perfect, it pulls you right into the photo. You've made me want to get my camera out and switch it to RAW black and white :)
