Black and White

Midtown Manhattan 6982bws

This is Midtown Manhattan from Roosevelt Island. There is something serene, something calming about black-and-white images. Color can distract as much as they entice and entertain. With black-and-white it’s just lines and shapes and the modalities of hue that add an appearance of dimensionality but for me there is the translucence of pure light.

A black-and-white image is classic photography without the modern bells and whistles, without contrived painterly effects. It’s just me and the light.
