The Lure of Black & White - 1
Over on Facebook two people asked if I could continue to post some more of my black & white images, now that the Black & White Challenge is over. A landslide vote! OK, so I will post another week's worth of some of my old B&W photographs. I had always wanted to own a Hasselblad, but they were pretty expensive. In 1980 I finally bought a used one and began looking for square pictures. The 2 1/4 by 2 1/4 black & white negatives are four times the area of a 35mm frame. The fine detail that is visible in the finished prints is astounding in comparison. So this is a photograph of a corner of my grandfather's barn, in Guilford, Connecticut. The photograph is about the beauty of the textures of the weathered wood and stone. It may be a more subtle photograph than some of my other landscapes. I would love to know what you think.
