This last weekend I was able to get out and take some photos. I don’t seem to do it as much as I used to. Still, I do love it when I can.
I have been very disillusioned with the city and every time I go in there I am often so disappointed. I love architecture, but the city has become so grungy and they seem to be building stuff everywhere.
My friend Steve and I thought maybe we should start looking for great architecture out of the city, so on Sunday, we took a trip to Brighton Town Hall and Library.
The town hall was a bit disappointing. It was on a corner but there were so many power lines, cars and trees that it was hard to get a good photo. I did do some on the other side of it, which I think is where the main entrance was.
In the end, I spent more time photographing the library, so I have a photo of that for you.
Interesting with this image too is that I spent so much time working on it. I haven’t done an image like this for a long time. It was nice to just go with the flow and see where the image took me.
It is one thing I like about processing. I try not to have a preconceived idea of what the image will look like and just go with it. I try things and just see what works.
How do you work on your images? I’ve wondered about doing videos on this sort of thing.
Monochrome Madness from the past
As I’ve said in the past I’ve wanted to show previous images that I have done for Monochrome Madness. Today I have the black and white version of an image I showed you on Friday. It was one of the ones from New York that I took while on the Staten Island Ferry.
I think I processed it as a black and white image and then afterwards converted it back to colour.
Which one do you think is better?
I love the way the big buildings don’t look huge, that is until you look at the bottom of them and see the tiny ones. Scale is a great thing.
That’s it for today but don’t forget if you want to participate keep reading to find out how.
Participating in Monochrome Madness
If you would like to participate in this challenge please post photos on your blog and use the tag Monochrome-Madness, as then I can use the reader to see what you post. Also, use the tag mid-week monochrome to catch Bren’s as well.
I’m afraid I don’t use Social Media much anymore, but maybe tag it #monochromemadness for Instagram and I will try and look. That would be brilliant.
