Yesterdays homage to Andre Kertesz had me thinking in black and white. Something I don't do enough of.

Sometimes color is extraneous at best, or worse a distraction. I am trying to deliberately set up my shots to have color (or the lack of) matter. No matter how compelling the subject is, if it is not photographed "intentionally" it will be little more then a document showing an event. Likewise, intentionally applied observation of light and color and elevate even the most humble subjects.


  1. Well there you go. The book was a good purchase because of the impetus it created. This post and the last one struck me as sort of portrait-like...portrait of a spork...portrait of a bell.
