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

I live in Central Massachusetts in the United Stares, where I have recently retired from public school teaching after thirty-four years. I am a nature photographer, particularly focusing on the the wide variety of birds to be found in this area. I am a keen supporter of the Massachusetts Audubon and the exceptional work that they do in education and protecting nature. It pleases me that many of the photographs I have posted here have also been displayed on the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton, MA website. I would love to connect with other primary school teachers in the hope that these photos might be useful in inspiring children to a greater connection with nature.
