Photo 101: Architecture and Monochrome
Some photos for today’s theme of “architecture”. I didn’t have any time to take any new photos for the assignment so I am falling back on earlier ones. Clearly, there’s quite a number to choose from for me so here are a few of my favourites.
The last part of the assignment called for using monochrome. I tried it out on this gate in Santorini. First I present the monochrome version below
Then the original (which would have made a good photo for the previous assignment, a pop of colour!)
Hmm, what do you think? I reckon I need a bit more work understanding the subtleties with monochrome shots. By the way, if you are interested Photo Roberts blog has quite a number of black and white shots that I think is done quite well. Feel free to check it out.

🙂 Wow, some beautiful pictures you are showing us there. Thank you!
The wasps building the nests are fascinating. And the house in Morocco looks like it will fall over shortly.
Have a very HAPPY day! 🙂
Thanks so much for your kind words and comments! I was barely brave enough to get close to the wasps to take a photo of them!
I loved your architectural photos. As far as monochrome is concerned, I am glad to have put it behind. I grew up with newspapers and TV in black and white only.
Haha! Everyone is so spoilt nowadays!
I think the gate looks better in colour. But I think the Duomo in Milan would look good in Monochrome,
Thanks for commenting! And I think so too. I have been playing about with monochrome a bit more. Learning to use it to take photos to exude an emotion or atmosphere. Probably works better with subjects rather than buildings
