Exceptional shots, Bob and something most of us wouldn't have tried....thank you for posting them.

To cut everything down, or leave.

After all this time, I've only just found out that our Geoff had in fact suffered a heart attack in 1995 and took three months off work to recuperate before he died after suffering a heart attack on a charity bike ride near Merthyr Tydfil in August 1996.

Morning, KEF……monochrome v colour?

I love the subtlety of tones that black and white images can have. In a world that often boasts about how many millions of colours a TV or monitor is able to produce … I love that in ‘Mono’ there is such a variety of what can be achieved in a photo. Black and White sounds so boring – but the fact is that there are so many shades in between… I love the challenge of bringing them all out in an image

Of course the black and white v colour debate is a very personal one. For every person who loves shooting mono there are many others who much prefer the vibrancy of colour photography.

Perhaps you may agree that by changing my earlier ‘snow scene’ shot into monochrome transformed it into ink- sketch type picture.

Loving those black n white pics David

 

Thank you kindly, both. I find it strange that after taking pictures in colour, I'm now tending to change them to b & w and making comparisons.

Speaking as someone who embraced colour photography since its inception, I find it interesting how certain photographs seem to assume appealing characteristics in b & w......perhaps it's a nostalgia thing.

For anyone who may have forgotten what sweet peas look like.

 Something quite bleak & desolate about this one, me thinks.

Morning, Frank

Yes, I've heard you speak fondly of your's & Joan's affection for Chatsworth.

I'm looking forward to my visit because (like you both) I love the place too.

Bakewell is probably better (like most places) enjoyed in the summer. Although, my visit  does coincide with market day, which is always worth a look around.
