Black and White

Today (Sunday) was cold, gray and misty - a perfect day for a few colorless photographs. I found a street downtown, with few people to get in the way, and captured these images. Digital photography is amazing. You have a choice of color or black and white without having to change the film.  And no time spent in a darkroom or sending to a film processor. Sweet!

is this tree really as tall as a 25-story building?

the library window

lion heads and fleur-de-lis

someone mutters and the street lamp gutters...

...and a bit of color


  1. Great pics. I wish we had such cool architecture here but our little town is barely 100 years old.

  2. Thanks Barb. The Old Dominion (Virginia) is a treasure trove of history and architecture. We are 45 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown, which is where the US all started. Norfolk has only a few relics remaining of those early days (most got burned to the ground in the Civil War). Most of the architecture is late 19th, early 20th Century, but nothing built today can compare to the workmanship and detail of that period.

  3. Indeed it can't. The architecture, old and new, is one of the things I love about Progreso and Merida.
