I love black and white photographs. I think it's something to do with the effect looking a little vintage-y. I like the contrasts created. The play of light and dark. And I think black and white photography makes great wall art.
I'm a black and white kind of person. Many of my clothes are black and white, with a little grey. My bedroom linen is predominantly black, white and grey. Colour slips in every now and then, but my eyes are drawn to black and white.
So, I thought I'd play around a bit with some of my photos to see what I could achieve.
I love palm trees and never tire of the patterns they produce. Hence, I had a few palm tree photos to choose from.
This shot was taken at Airlie Beach, Queensland.
These were taken at Palm Cove, north of Cairns, in Far North Queensland. A favourite place of mine.
These were shot on a blustery day on Magnetic Island, off the coast from Townsville. Another special place.
And at Picnic Bay on Magnetic Island.
Under the jetty at Picnic Bay, Magnetic Island.
In the conservation area a few short steps away from my real home on the Gold Coast, Queensland.
Can you spot the wallaby?
And Flinders Street Station in Melbourne, Victoria.
What do you think?
The ones at Picnic Bay on Magnetic Island are my favourites.
