I have been seeing lots of photos on blogs that are black and white and of old buildings that have just been left. It made me think about my time from Bodie, the ghost town in California. I was lucky to be able to visit it back in 2015.
I have always been disappointed in my photos from there because of the weather conditions. It was a very warm day and the sky was so blue. The sun was creating harsh shadows, and I’ve never known quite what to do with the photos.
After seeing some images that seemed to be taken in the same conditions, it got me thinking, would my images looks better in black and white than colour?
I went through my folder of images and tried to pick a couple, but there were so many. I might have to do a follow up post some time.
I wonder if it is because they are old buildings and we think of monochrome as being old? I really don’t know. I would love to hear your thoughts. I have to admit I have not liked my colour images, but I think I might like these. Do you think subjects like this work well in monochrome?
