Black and White, and in Color.
After a week in Paris my step counter was exploding. I returned to favorite neighborhoods and explored new ones. The Seine, running through the center of Paris, and the Eiffel Tower kept me oriented as I walked the streets. Spring weather drew people outdoors.
I set out with a plan to create black and white images in recognition of the late French photographer, Henri Cartier-Bresson. He worked in black and white and spoke of the “decisive moment,” a unique, fleeting moment that brings an image to life. In my street and travel photography I am always chasing that moment. A glance. A gesture. A shadow.
I always shoot in color and convert my images to black and white in post processing. Although I put together a black and white Paris gallery (link below) there are a few images I want to share in color and here’s why.
Limestone is everywhere in Paris. At the "Golden Hour" it has beautiful tonal warmth.
