There's something about black-and-white photos - it makes you focus much more on the lines and shapes and shadows and notice things you'd otherwise miss.
Yes, black and white is a whole different world...I actually took these on my phone. They looked much sharper and more interesting there. When I imported, they changed automatically to color (this is apparently standard) and then I had to change them again to black and white so something good was definitely lost in the translation. Still, kind of cool. Thanks for noticing!
You took these, Heather? I thought they were some Winogrands I'd never seen (though certainly not his regular fare). They're so beautiful.Winogrand's photograph of the 'Three Graces' on Hollywood Blvd is one of my all-time favorites.
I WELCOME your comments!!!
