Which Way to Go?

BW photograph of a black metal rail and some stairs on the side of a building

This photograph represents all that I find pleasurable about BW photography-it contains the full range of tones from black, through the greys, to white.  The direct sunlight coming from camera right is responsible for the crisply defined, dark shadows and the very bright, white doors and covered windows.  It is that same combination of shadow and highlight that so readily defines the texture of the wall and stairs as well.  It is because of those factors that I had made the decision to convert this image to BW even before the shutter was pressed.

BW photograph of a solitary metal fork lying in the road

Speaking of choices, Yogi Berra, may he rest in peace, once said “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.”  This particular fork may still be laying there…

Take care.
