Sunset On The Colorado – Monochromia – Black & White Photography Article

Sunset On The Colorado – Monochromia Towards the end of what is now being called phase 1 of the Covid-19 pandemic, we had to travel from our home in Las Vegas NV to Des Moines IA with a chihuahua who has a broken front leg. We had intended to camp in our car, but all the national park- and most of the state park- campsites were closed. So we had to find motels that would allow pets. I can tell…

Making Music – Monochromia – Black & White Photography Article

Making Music – Monochromia   Several evenings a week in my small city, it’s possible to find folks picking up their instruments and creating beautiful music.   This past Friday, I had the chance to capture the sight, if not the sound, of that music.  The hands fascinate me, the way they move, almost effortlessly, over the instrument. If you’d like to see some more images from that evening, please check out Local Music at my original blog Life on the…

Zeesboot – Monochromia – Black & White Photography Article

Zeesboot – Monochromia   This is a traditional sailing boat from the Baltic Sea. It’s usually about 10-metre-long. The wide-hulled sailing boat type is known as a Haffboot. The name is derived from the type of fishing gear used, known as a zeese. The sailing boat is designed for relatively protected, shallow waters.

Light and Shadow – Monochromia – Black & White Photography Article

Light and Shadow – Monochromia My WordPress journey began as a chronicle of my life and travels on the bike.  The bigger, planned trips, and the smaller, more spontaneous ones.  As I ride along, I never know when something is going to catch my eye, and inspire me to pull over. Sometimes I work hard to capture what I see and sometimes I get lucky and the first shot just works.  Other than conversion to B&W, this image is exactly…

Out Of The Past – Monochromia – Black & White Photography Article

Out Of The Past – Monochromia For those of you who have no idea what film noir is, the movie, Out Of The Past is one of the best examples. Think guns, dames, and hats. Noir’s visual style had its roots in German expressionism with dark, rich blacks and vibrant whites. For my money, the best writers were Raymond Chandler (The Big Sleep, The Maltese Falcon) and James M. Cain (The Postman Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity). Cain did uncredited…

If you forgot to deliver your token you were made to walk from the mine back to the town and return the next day. Even in winter. The guide told us you only did this once and never forgot it again.

Waves – Monochromia – Black & White Photography Article

Waves – Monochromia When standing on the beach and watching the waves rolling in you can every now and then find things. In the surf, you can find stones, shells, algae or other sea plants and even human waste. At the same time, the surf washes away footprints or any other mark in the sand. Heavier waves are able to form the beach and even the coastline anew. This happens usually during the winter storms. Two and a half weeks…
