Sometimes, a set of photos just asks to be black and white. This was one of those times. There will be another set, more colorful in someways.

In truth, if you have been following my photos for very long, you know that these are actually duotones; warm yellow highlights over blue black shadows. It is an effect that goes back a long way – even though we achieve it differently than we did in the days of film, paper and chemical reactions.

It still has a lot of power, especially in this set.
