19.01.11 It's Black and White (Near Deerfield, SD)

By Scott Shephard

I’m thinking that if my previous post of of the Seattle Japanese garden was “Jin” then today’s post is certainly “Yang.” Colorful/no color. I will confess that I have a predilection to black and white, maybe because of the fact that when I was first learning photography, I worked in black and white. It could also be that most of my role models for photography (Karsh, Adams and Weston, to name three) all worked in black and white.

The main reason, though, is that I like how a grayscale photo reduces a pictures to elemental things such lines, shapes, shades and textures. I’m not going to show you, but in color this photo is a totally different picture. It’s nice but I like this one better
