Black and White – Part 2


 Back in Black and White!  As you remember, from my previous B&W post, Black and White photography is a classic form.  Whether you like the way it looks on your wall, or the focus on subject rather than colour, or they way it makes your portrait photography look classy, you have to admit there is something about it.

The photos I have posted can be grouped in twos; a pair from Portobello Road Markets, and a pair of animals from Africa.  Portobello Road Markets are quality markets in a nice area of London.  As usual, they are directed at tourists, but there is something extra there, something that if you had the money you could get yourself some very groovy bits and pieces to display in your house.  That, of course, means there are some very cool things to take photos of, including rows of old cameras and retro sporting equipment.  I can’t have the items, but the photos will dress up a wall very nicely. And the Africa photos … well, the rhino stood in the water long enough to give me a great reflection, and the elephant has more character than the Muppets!  As always, enjoy!

      Thanks Lesley. I’m glad you used the photo for your wallpaper. Ingrid has a whole range of them to keep her not getting bored at work. Hope you have settled well back in Oz.
