I took this photo as part of an assignment Dennis Newman, photo/media instructor at Lake Area Technical Institute, gave us on a recent field trip to Minneapolis and St. Paul.
I had originally processed this photo in color (see it here) but on a whim decided to see what a black and white process would do to it. And I liked it - primarily because it drew attention to the nature of the assignment, which was "light and lines."
It occurs to me that photographers are like a movie directors in the way they use light, color and space to convey a mood. In the case of this photo, dark and mysterious is a long way from green and vibrant.
