Default Some E3 B&Ws ...

Wet and miserable is all you can say about the Uk weather the last two weeks. OUt very briefly with the E3 a couple of days ago - was hoping to shoot shadows but not much joy with the day being overcast and wet but there was a very brief outbreak of sunshine.









Bust of HRH Prince Charles followed by some paintings from the late 1700/1800s. All at the Guidhall which amazingly is home to London's Roman Amphitheatre !







I'm hoping it stops raining so that I can get out and shoot over the next few weeks.

Cheers

Harj

Very nice Harj, there is just something about B&W photos that lure me into viewing them more closely. Maybe because I am an old fart and I shot B&W film with my first Kodak Brownie Starflash camera. Color film was too much money to develop at that time and especially with a young boy's meager allowance. :-)

Great B&W's, always enjoy your shots. Had to laugh at Charlie's bust. (Bunch of privileged arses.)

I'm having the same weather related problems shooting houses. Tying to make them look appealing when it's so dreary out. If it's not rain, it's damp fog. Oh well, life goes on.
Thanks for the photos and smile.

Absolutely love your work Harj. They belong in a photo book.

James/Ken.. definitely agree about the B&W there's something about them that draws you in.

I've noticed that I've become a wee bit resevered when out streetshooting which isn't a good thing and may be lacking in confidence too. Will need to work on that.

2 Street shooting portfolios that I've started to keep an eye on:

Yes, my thoughts also. Remembering your candid street work over the years brings to mind that they all had a certain artistic appeal. They could make for an interesting photo book.

Couple of good portfolios. I like the both but for me the SFO predominately B&W catches the scene better.

Yours are at least the equal of them. Including the ones of yours above

Ken/Steve/Persi

Thanks for the comments on the pics.. Ken, not sure if I'd agree about my pics being as good as those .. I'll need to shoot a lot more often and get up close and personal for some candid portrait shots and thats a lot harder to do !

Cheers

Harj
