A Few New Black and White Photos...






I thought I would share a few new B&W photos that I took recently. The bridge and seascape scenes were from Deception Pass, Washington. The car grill was taken in LaConner, Washington a few weeks ago. Black and whites are becoming a favorite of mine...I especially like to create stark contrasts in my photos.
