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.

About the challenge to shoot an object that has been shot a zillion times before.
This is a start of a small series. Since I had the pleasure to visit London last week, I might have a few pictures which are worth showing. Hope, you will enjoy!
I don’t encourage anyone to drink alcohol. If you do, fine. If you don’t, fine by me, too.
However, there are some evenings where a bottle of beer fits the mood. It might be the company of a fine young lady who is too shy for the camera, too. It might be both.
And there are gigs I capture, where I don’t know the name of the band until they hit the stage. Shame on me, I didn’t know who this fine gentleman was. At least, until someone told me the middle-aged-guy with the hat was desert rock legend Mario Lalli who brought his two bands Fatso Jetson and Yawning Man into Town.
The thing I adore about fish-eye-lenses: You can get a bit closer, even towards bigger objects. This ferris wheel is about 47 metres high.

Hard to believe, Lamborghini is part of the Volkswagen car manufacturing group, isn’t it?
