ah the granite city - awesomely austere

John said...

Never been; looks like a good monochrome subject though.

HansHB said...

Nydelig lys - skygge.
Flott komponert!

RuneE: We are supposed to get up to 40º F today and we should get some rain with that and hopefully it will wash away the snow that is still here.

Looks like you could use some of our snow in your black and white picture. I need to pay more attention to all of these places offering different themes:

You sure made a great black and white shot out of this one. Or maybe you just shot it in black and white?

Great B&W shot for the day, Rune! My whole world here in Oregon is GRAY and has been for some time!! Looking forward to some color and sping!! Yes, I know, I do have a long wait ahead!! Have wonderful weekend!!

Nice contrast in the textures between the old block and 'newer' bricks.

Carver said...

I love how you caught a reflection in the bricks on the right side of the picture.

Malyss said...

I like this picture very much! I especially love the bow-window. I could easily imagine this pic as a cover of a good book!
Nice week-end to you!

Christian Weiß said...

Interesting contrast.

Dragonstar said...

I love the contrasting shapes and light, and the reflection.

Monica said...

Artig.... først ser jeg det flotte lyset, de ulike teksturene og overflatene, og formkontrastene... og da jeg tror jeg er ferdig oppdager jeg plutselig et liiite menneske der nede med tunge bæreposer!
Kjempebilde!
God helg til deg, Rune:)

Annemor said...

Nydelig lys og variasjon i teksturene.
Skal damen handle tro?
Ha en fin kveld.

Against all that stone and shiny non-organic stuff, in light and dark, a single tiny human. Somebody needs to care about her, so I will.

Rajesh said...

Superb shot.

Lina Gustina said...

I like this angled shot. Well lit.

Beautiful photo in B&W! I like the reflections and the perspective!

I like the lonely person in-between the building..adds dynamic to a perfect b/w picture.

Ineke Kruger said...

I love this B&W photo. A lot of character and depth

DougPhoto2009 said...

Thanks for sharing. Solitary shopper - nice capture.

Laura said...

Wonderful contrasts, between the architectural forms, textures, shadow and light!

EG CameraGirl said...

You shot this from such an interesting angle. It tool me a while to figure out what I was looking at. Nice range of colour from white to black, and I like the contrast of the straight and curved lines.

Gemma Wiseman said...

The tones of light create a wonderful mix of shadows and reflections.

Sophie A. said...

Clean and sharp cityscape shot!

Gunsside said...

Veldig stilig, spennende lys og skygger

Kicki said...

Vackert ljus på en vacker byggnad!

Petra said...

The B&W let the architecture speak for itself, the contrast of the buildings is interesting.

BTW I followed the link to the blog dedicated to B&W photography and bookmarked it, there are so many interesting captures. Beautiful inspiration.

Valerie said...

Oh I love the north of Scotland. Never got to Aberdeen though. Nice B & W shot.

Irene said...

Råbra bilde, og er helt toppers i sort/hvitt. Mange spennende detaljer som fargene lett kan overskygge.

Ha ei fin ny uke, Rune!

Prairie Jill said...

Great shot! I love the contrast of the light, round building and the darker, angular one. Perfect in b&w.

Electra said...

Powerful image!!

AmitAag said...

A great shot, Runee!
thank you for your nice comment on my blog:)

Awesome photo!

munchow said...

Flott fanget - kontrasten mellom lys og skygge. Og så vakkert "fremkalt". Måtte du få et fantastisk 2014, Rune!

imac said...

Magnifico work in B/W my dear friend

Jarek said...

Great B&W shot! I like it

Mandy Southgate said...

Wow! This is really lovely!
