Monochrome Monday


Cathedral of St. Paul on Tremont Street. A slightly different view of the cathedral I took two years ago.

Fabulous! Amazing POV and the scale of the cathedral to the people. Brava.

I love how the monochrome brings out the patterns on the columns. Beautifully done.

You 've got a great talent to tell a lot with a little..Choosing this angle, you explain where you are, how big and impressive is the place, and make a powerful shot!

The columns are so interesting...they look water-stained.

I like this new one better,
the columns free of any advertisement!

Katie said...

I was just going to say the same thing, Hilda! I've never seen these in person. Is it marble? cement?

Massive columns set off by much more delicate ironwork. Impressive. I like the figure seen through the railing - gives a great sense of scale.

Those columns are enormous!

Imposing column, I like the veneers of the marble rendered perfectly in B&W.

I enjoy familiar things shot from different angles, I think we all do.

I can feel the weight of those massive columns. I like the counterpoint of the person sitting off to the side. You have a great eye for composition.

Love the monchrome - your tones are nice. Your angle makes it look enormous and feel heavy (which is great!).

A very fine monochrome image!

It looks humongous!!! Beautiful!

Love that perspective of columns going up and monochrome tones

Buildings with columns seem to draw the camera, they always make a good b&w subject.
