Pier Pylon In Monochrome

Contrast And Grain

Some images don’t fit a current theme or subject, or maybe they just stand on their own. I have taken many photographs because the subject felt right, but the photo needed to be put aside for a future article.

I think these fit into that category. I do like the feel of each one. Color detracts from the pictures here, it’s all about ‘Contrast and Grain’.

Light brown stone and water stains give the statues of learning on the Connecticut State Library a softer tone than the stark and glaring brightness seen on a sunny day.

An old and weathered barn in a monochrome look brings out all the feeling of the rough wood.

When this window photo was viewed in color it meant little, a discard for sure. However, after it was processed in a black and white the rain splattered dirt, cob webs, and even old insects were completely clear. I’m sure this is one you either love or hate. I have had both reactions evenly.

Last here is a simple pier pylon waiting for one of the tall ships usually tied up here in the Mystic repair yard. There are a few hints of color, everything is low toned.

Comments are available on this article and I would be interested to see if I am the only one who likes this type of work.
