Fences and Walls in Black-and-White

Black-and-white photography can help us see textures, patterns and shapes that we might miss in color photos.

On a recent walk, I was struck by the shadows cast by the architecture and the subtle shading in the farm landscape. Digital photographers today have such a wide variety of options. I was able to alternate between black-and-white and color photos with one simple click of the computer!

About the author jmankowsky

This photo blog features the seasonal changes in nature observed in my own backyard and a variety of local environments. The Wachusett Meadow Audubon Sanctuary in Princeton, MA is often highlighted as a model for the positive effects a small nature preserve can have on the larger environment and the local community. Local sites of historical, cultural and recreational interest are spotlighted as well. All photographs were taken by me. Thank you so much for visiting.

    1. Yes, it makes you notice things you might have missed in color, I think.
