    Default For the Love of B&W Photography

    I know quite a few of us here love B&W photography.
    So why not have a thread dedicated for it.

    Pen or no pen, all welcome, as long as it is B&W, and it's yours.
    Lastly, remember this is *not* a photography forum, enjoy the photos, be gracious with your observations, and be generous with your compliments.

    Let's start, shall we...

    I don't know enough about photography to comment intelligently, but I like what I see.

    Jump in anytime, David. To know enough, we must first see enough.

    Since you'd like to entertain some B&W, perhaps you'll have ideas about a project I'm working.

    In 1974, New Jersey photographer George Tice created an image of a Mobil gas station in South Jersey. It's become well regarded enough that if you want a print today, it's $50,000. I've been trying to do a current version of that print that can recall the original in some way. The gas station has changed, but so much else has changed it's not so easy. Anyway, I'll link to Tice's image, then two I've now got as working models so far...



    And then my current renditions...



    and

    What a fun project to take on, Bill. Glad you're sharing it with us.

    George Tice is a master darkroom printer. His prints have the tonality and subtlety that would delight B&W fans everywhere.
