Today I had a mission in mind when I went on my lunch hour walk. I wanted to take shots that would be interesting in black and white. Not something that I am generally thinking about when taking my photos.
Overall it was a successful venture, with some decent graffiti shots:
A snap of the brick showing through on the side of the St. Michael Hotel:
An older man working up on the roof of one of the Whiskey Row buildings. Laying down some tar by the looks of it:
And I even managed to squeak out a black and white HDR out back of the Palace Bar building, showing off the upstairs seating area:
Of course, it was not a total success. I did grab a pic of an odd tree. Its leaves are turning from green straight to white. Not something I have seen before:
And this graffiti under Gurley Street was too colorful for me to put it in BW:
