I have always loved black and white photographs. They seem more.. "expressive" to me than color photographs though I really cannot explain why.
The Lonely Guitarist
This is my all time favorite picture. I was passing through Place D' Arts metro station in Montreal and I found this old gentleman playing the guitar ( And he was playing really well )
A flight of stairs at St Joseph's Oratory
I went to St Joseph's Oratory of Mont Royal and found a bunch of stairs at the side of the building, leading towards the top.
This picture would have made a very ordinary color photograph - but it looks much better in black and white
Jacques Cartier Bridge Montreal
This photograph was taken while I was sitting on the front seat of a running taxi. The iron-alloy pillars and support structures give some depth to the photograph. I had taken this picture in color mode initially , but when I converted it into black and white the "effect" of the depth really came out:
Pier 21 - Halifax Harbor front
Millions of immigrants passed thorough this port to enter Canada. This is Canada's Ellis Island. I wanted to capture the notice in the foreground with George's Island in the background - did a poor job at it.
Most photographs of static objects and people look more beautiful in Black and White than in color. Or maybe it's just my perception
