More black and white photography from Vancouver (old photos from when it was sunny outside).
There are a few things that I like about black and white photography for scenery-type photos. In these photos below I especially like the intensity of the tree trunk shadows. In the colour version of these pictures the colours – particularly the greens of the leaves and grass – are bright and colourful, but doesn’t have a real focal point for the pictures. The black and white filter changes the outlook completely. Rather than quickly look at the pictures and view them as just another summer day shot, I find myself looking further into what each picture holds. It starts with the dark areas of the trees, then moves to the people, then to the buildings in the background. Regardless, I hope you enjoy these shots from Kits Beach park in Vancouver.
