Life in Black and White.

A sampling of B/W photos I have taken over the past year.
No connection other than their color..or lack thereof.

The thing I love about B/W photography is that it really forces you to capture texture.
You don't have color to work with, so instead your focus becomes texture, grain, consistency (yep, I just did a Thesaurus search of "texture").
Photography has really changed the way I look at the world. Don't get me wrong, I'm not getting all philosophical on y'all. But I really do look at things differently.
I see a scene and immediately think how I would compose a photo.
Inanimate objects are given life.
Ugly scenes have a place.
Blah. Blah. Blah. 
You get the point. :)
Hope y'all enjoyed the pictures! 


  1. This is my absolute favorite post. Well done!

  2. Great post. I see what you mean about capturing texture. I really like the fence post picture and the dock pic.
