Mosaic Monday #14 Simple Black and White

I've been playing around with altering photos to black and white to create a simpler effect, often I like it better than the colour version.
From our trip to Toronto this weekend. The CN tower, lights and traffic of the big city and inside Massey Hall where we attended the 45th anniversary concert of the Downchild Blues Band.

  1. I love black and white and sepia photos ! :)

    One of my son and DIL's favorite wedding pics that I took of them was one that I did in color as well as sepia..they preferred the sepia one. Same thing with her sister at her wedding...everyone preferred a B/W of the bride and groom dancing over the color.

    These look wonderful :)

  9. There is something about black and white photos that make you want to look deeper. I've been doing research on our family trees and looking at all the old photos has made me appreciate black and white so much more.

  12. HI Judith, I enjoyed seeing these particular photos in black and white. That concert sounds like one we'd enjoy, especially Murray. He love the blues. :)

  13. !Oh Judith, I have been toying with the idea of black and white - I did a few on Instagram and liked them. And now you've further inspired me! I especially like that first mosaic

  14. I really must do more black & white photography. I think finding a subject with a distinct contrast is important. Of course all photos were B&W once! Have a lovely week and thank you for hosting.

  15. Your B&Ws are wonderful -- so sharp and clear and interesting that subjects I would never have thought would be good in anything but color are so good. You make me think about new ways to do things! (Definitely a good thing at my age.) Thanks for that -- and for your always lovely posts -- and for hosting!!!

  16. I rarely take B&W photos, Judith, or edit them that way, but I do admire them and have a Pinterest board of many that I like. I love your city shots--
    Toronto is a wonderful city to visit--the concert you attended sounds like fun!

  20. That's a fun thing to do Judith!
    Black and white brings drama to a photo.
    I'm keen to try this too!

  25. Black and white photos can be stunning, even more dramatic than color. We do remember a time when all of our photos were black and white. Color was such a luxury.

  26. Hi Judith - B&W photos have their own unique beauty! You did a beautiful job with these!!

  30. Good Morning Judith. Enjoyed your black and white collages, striking contrasts. Thank you for Mosaic Monday no. 14. We have frosted rooftops and sunshine this morning. Crisp November on the western coast.

  31. Excellent choice for your photos, Judith, particularly the first collage. The details are very clearly accentuated.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Both are great collages. I love the dog figurines in your 1st one. Also in the 2nd I really liked the BW with the city scene.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Beautiful! Sometimes color is distracting, and a good, old-fashioned B&W is just the ticket.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Very nice Judith and they certainly are fun to do. I just recently worked some in B&W for a 5 day project on Facebook~
