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.”
