Lens-Artists #70: Monochrome

This week, Patti  has challenged us to explore the world of monochrome using black and white, sepia, or different shades of the same color.

For this challenge I went through my archives and chose photos of scenes in Savannah, Georgia. Converting the photos to black and white added a bit of mystery to them. The photo above is of stone steps leading from Bay Street to River Street along the Savannah River.

The Forsyth Park Fountain is one of Savannah’s most well know sights.

Bonaventure Cemetery is always an interesting place to visit. Seeing it in black and white adds a little more drama.

Perhaps one of the most famous homes in Savannah is the Mercer House made famous by the book “Midnight in the Garden of Good of Evil.”

  1. I don’t know why I don’t post more black and white images. Your captures made me love monochrome photography even more.

    I love how you always rise to the challenge each week. I applaud you Beth!

      1. Oh I understand what you mean. I was doing a challenge on Facebook each week and there were some tough ones I had a hard time with.

        But they do make me take photos thinking about those future challenges. Lol!

    1. Tina, I live near Savannah but I don’t go there often enough. I always enjoy it when I do. One of my favorite places to take photos is Bonaventure. The photo of the woman on the gravestone is one of my favorites, too.
