London in Black and White

There is this fascination. Some people might think Black and White is just boring and for old pictures. However, there is a refreshing amount of people who push themselves to compose and construct shots which are stunning even though, they do not contain a single color other than black, white and the vast amount of grey inbetween.

For me, some pictures don’t work in color and it is the job of the photographer to find them. In addition, simply converting a color image into Black and White won’t do the trick. And moreover, with the colors gone, viewer tend to catch flaws in composition faster.

I love challenges.

Tell me what you think about the images of London. Shot at different times of day and night.


Black & White – visiting guardians – Pragfriedhof Stuttgart

When I started the Christmas countdown series, I had one post in mind pretty much immediately. The Weeping Angel. Only the image was not yet done. Not a big problem, though since the site is close to my home. During an afternoon walk through Stuttgart’s Pragfriedhof – the third largest cemetery of Stuttgart – the image was taken. Open for nearly 140 years, it contains the only crematorium in Stuttgart.

Not that I am a big fan of cemeteries, crypts and that kind, but it was fascinating to what lengths families went to honor their lost ones.

Black and White – Feeding the tweeties

Eine Woche ist der letzte Schwarz-Weiß-Post jetzt her. Von daher wird es wohl Zeit, das ‘Daily’ aus dem Titel zu nehmen. Heute ein kleiner Tierpost. Der Anlass: Ab heute kann man meine Posts und das eine oder andere Bild zusätzlich auch auf Twitter verfolgen.

Well, since the last ‘Daily Black & White’ post was a week ago, I need to come up with a better theme title probably. Until then, a black and white post with birds. The reason: I am using Twitter now to publish the posts here and a few more pictures and status updates along the way. Follow me if you like.
