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’.

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.
