A Vision of Black and White

For todays post I thought I would explore some of my older photos post some black and white conversions.  I’ve always been fascinated with black and white photography and have found that the absence of color makes me look deeper into the image.  Without color we have a tendency to see the detail that was always there and that, I think, is what makes black and white so fascinating.

Hope you enjoy the photos and feel free to let me know what you think.

One of My Other Passions

One of my passions, and this may seem weird to you, is that of visiting cemeteries.  I really don’t know what it is that lures me into these places but I have always felt very comfortable in cemeteries.  Once I started doing photography the two just seemed to go together.  I think that cemeteries can be very peaceful and have many beautiful scenes in them.  I visit as many as I can and I constantly look for new ones to explore.  Some are abandon and some are well maintained.  When I’m in Pittsburgh one of my favorites is, of course, Allegheny Cemetery and recently I found the Homewood Cemetery.  Tonights post covers several cemeteries around Western Pa.  Such as St. Vincent Cemetery, Unity Cemetery, and Allegheny Cemetery.  Hopefully you’ll see the beauty that I have found to be so peaceful.

Churches of Pittsburgh…

Just wanted to do a quick post of a couple of churches in Pittsburgh, Pa.  I photographed these in the early spring and just got around to processing them.  On Sunday I will be making a trip to Allegheny Cemetery in Pittsburgh and hopefully I’ll have a chance to photograph a few more of the churches.

Hope you enjoy.
