Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: Monochrome

This week Patti has asked us to post in monochrome.

I don’t understand why some people think that monochrome/black and white is dull and boring.  It often picks us nuances that would otherwise be unseen.

As an example, I never saw the clouds in the beach photo above until I converted it to black and white.

It was an overcast day when I took this photo so it was no surprise that it came out of the camera very blah.  Converting the photo to black and white brought out the clouds and the birds in the foreground.

Bright, colorful flowers are always beautiful and can cheer anyone up but I get just as many comments on these coneflowers in black and white that I display at art shows.

Sometimes, I convert a photo to black and white just because I can.  This is a photo of the Murrells Inlet pier taken on another overcast day.  The color photo below is more true to the subject that day but the black and white is much more dramatic.
