Here we are, continuing on with some more black and white shots. And, due to the chronological order of them, we have a wide variety in just a few shots.
This is a memorial in my parents’ basement for my grandfather. The fact that it is on top of a homemade bar is extremely fitting.
The arches in the Cloisters: no matter what type of light you have, you can typically end up with this image.
Park Dreams in silhouette. I love this shot on so many levels, be it in color or b&w.
A lamp lit in the park. Evening shots can come out so nice with the use of black.
Down the river in the northern area of the park. Lots of foliage makes a b&w shot very busy. Sometimes that’s a good thing, sometimes it’s just confusing.
The weeping willow over a pond. The textures work nice in this and the shadows help create a deeper later for the tree.
Shadow play is always fun with architecture in b&w. I could up the contrast even further if I want a daguerrotype style of image.
Angles and lack of color makes this a very dramatic shot of one of the lions in front of the NYPL.
Shooting through the gate of the Cloisters, letting the black disguise a good chunk of the tunnel.
The Peace Fountain. Creepy even without color.
Next week: I was able to get into the Central Park Nature Preserve as they prepare to develop it for public access.
