Week 40: Tell the story of a colorful picture, in black and white
Time to get my head back into photography after weeks of hiatus due to travel and after-travel catch-up. What better way than with a very colorful image, but with all of the color removed. Can you imagine what it looks like in color? Would color distract you in this very busy image? Are you able to focus on the intricate design in the absence of color? Does the subtlety of the grayscale appeal to you? Or do you miss the color?
The full original art (in color) is currently at the Renwick Art Gallery in Washington, DC. This is just a small portion of the original. Sorry, I wasn’t taking notes; I don’t know the artist’s name. The Renwick does encourage photos.
This is composition #2 where I had fun in a lightless room in front of a mirror with a small LED flashlight.
