Monochrome beauty……….

14 Apr

Yep, I am a sucker for monochrome. Colour can add dimension, display tragedy, portray joy and happiness but for me the simplicity of black and white removes distraction and allows the viewer to focus on the subject.

Be it a capture of age, feeling or as in this case beauty there are no filters, no curtains to peer through, you are just presented with the image and then you, the viewer can interpret the image without interference or corruption.

A lot heavier than my standard posts I know, but for me monochrome is special, not something to be used all the time, not a fashion fad, not arty, just plain and simply beautiful.

    Lovely shot.

    Personally, I always shoot in colour and then have the option of turning the picture mono if I choose to later on.

    Good work!

        Thanks Jenn, she is a lovely young girl, great fun with a good sense of humour.
        Are the school holidays over yet, mine have gone back and the house is serene for six hours a day again.
