Street Art in Monochrome


The art itself was very colourful, but the window "begged" for monochrome.

This is my contribution to:  «The Weekend in B & W»
Have a nice Week-End!

What a terrific monochrome capture, Rune!! You do find the great shots! Have a wonderful weekend!!!

John said...

I see what you mean, it's one that works both ways; the art begs for colour, the window and wall beg for mono. Good one.

Anne said...

Kuuuult!

Becky Jerdee said...

I prefer the picture in the window frame to the "into the hermitage" painted characters.

Gerald (SK14) said...

love it in monochrome

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Very crisp details. This might be a good one for selective colorization too!

Carver said...

I like the art and works so well in black and white.

Nice shoot!

petrus said...

Jaaa,- kjempekult, Rune! Jeg er en hund etter god grafitti, og du verden så flott det ble i svarthvitt! Og vinduet var prikken over i'en!
Ha en alle tiders helg:)

I think the B&W gives much strength to the picture. Good choice!

Great! Very nice contrast between old window and abstrac art

Kicki said...

Så konstnärligt snyggt!!!

Regina said...

Fantastic!

Happy weekend!

Valerie said...

That's surreal. The B & W makes the window look real... then I realized it is part of the artwork.

Valerie said...

Or is it? Either way, great effect!

Love the contrast between the street art and the old window! well spotted.

marja said...

Oftast vill man ju se graffiti i klara färger, men det här var fint. Kontrasten mellan förnstret och konstverket känns ändå. :)

It has that kind of shabby, grotesque look that reminds me of Mexico. Or maybe the novels of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Splendid.

Birdman said...

I must admit what a wonderful, striking banner for you.

Englepappa said...

Utruleg tøft bilde! Likar kombinasjonen av rå grafitti og eldgamalt, slitt vindauge. Når fargane er borte, kan dei "spele meir på lag"!

Anna said...

Läcker bild! super i svart och vitt!

Follygirl said...

great art work!

Ingun Kleppan said...

Veldig flott bilde, spennende med grafittien mot det nydelige slitte vinduet.

Dragonstar said...

Love it! Wonderfully patterned window, and the graffiti look good in black and white.

LonettA said...

Absolutely gorgeous in B&W! Brilliant photo!

Laura said...

What an amazing find… Truly a work of art all as one in black and white. Well done!

munchow said...

Jeg tror du gjorde rett i å velge svart-hvitt. Det gir mer fokus på den absurde bildetelling - og ramme omkring den. Veldig bra.

EG CameraGirl said...

I'm betting this is better in monochrome than in colour. ;))

NatureFootstep said...

I think that bw is good for this art. Color might have been "too much" Thanks for sharing.

Banjo52 said...

Seeing art like this in monochrome is so new to me that it's interesting. I suppose I'd want the color back if I were to look at 50, but for one or a few, this is interesting.

Reminds me of the graffiti I see on buildings, bridges and other structures in the U.S. I think American graffiti is so vibrant but many people have something against it. I think your photo is great. -- barbara

Øystein Brembo said...

Kjempeflott S/H Liker snittet og teksturen i bildet :) Tusen takk for dine kommentarer på min Blogg :)

Petra said...

You're right about the window, Rune, it has a character in the b&w! Undoubtedly the photo would be interested in colour as well.

Prairie Jill said...

Great shot! I love the contrast between the old window and the street art. Perfect in b&w.

Irene said...

Jøsses .... det var litt av et bilde! Råkult, Rune! Og uttrykksfullt i sort/hvitt!

God uke!

Irene

HansHB said...

Utrolig flott!

Mandy Southgate said...

Wow! What a spectacular piece of street art! I have also taken monochrome photos of colourful street art before - somehow it just brings out the level of skill and detail in the original pieces!

EriKa Napoletano said...

I like it very much. Gorgeous shot! Bye from Italy

Anne said...

Dette var skikkelig rått da Rune!! veldig sånn det gamle møter det nye å, kontraster så det holder, skikkelig bra!!

Birgitta Rudenius said...
