Brooding Virtue

Tulip, Flower, Monochrome, Macro

This is a white tulip.  By converting it to a monochrome image, it becomes a moody collection of light and shadow, texture and form.

I’ve been working on tulip images that I shot a couple years ago.  This was a nice macro shot of a white, tulip bloom. It was a nice image, in color, but I thought it became a much more interesting image in monochromatic form.

Strolling Through the Weeds

Boy, B&W, Monochrome, Portrait, Child,
A young boy, with a contemplative look, strolls through the tall grasses and weeds of an rural farm field.

I don’t often get to shoot photos of people, but when I do, it tends to be close friends or family. I just don’t have the time in my schedule to set up portrait sessions and the work of post processing. In this case, I got to spend some time with this three -year-old cutie – my grandson.  Just the two of us took a little walk in the country…with my camera, of course.

I wasn’t really intending to grab a shot of him.  We were just out for a stroll while Papa (what he calls me) looked for interesting things to photograph. We looked for birds and pretty leaves, talked about, walked over a dry creek bed. The perfect subject eluded us.

It was a tough time to shoot – mid day, under a bright sun.  I didn’t find much that caught my eye. So, naturally, on the walk back I turned the camera on the most interesting thing I could find.

Because of the overpowering contrast created by that bright sun, I thought the best treatment for this shot was to convert it to a monochrome image. I think it turned out well. In fact, one of my all time favorites. (Of course, that’s from the Grandpa in me as much as the artist.)

Pere Marquette Park Gazebo

Night, Milwaukee, Riverwalk, Reflection, Gazebo, Monochrome, B&W
Calm prevails over the Pere Marquette Park gazebo in the heart of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This was taken on a calm, evening stroll along the Riverwalk.

Spending time in Milwaukee recently, I was able to join a photographer friend for a little night photography.  I don’t often get into the big city, so it was fun to capture big city lights.  I thought this image was best suited for a monochrome treatment.  I hope you think so too.

Attention Grabbing

Baby, Monochrome, Portrait, B&W, Infant, Child Portrait
Something’s captured her attention. This is our granddaughter at the age of wonder and development.  She’s learning more about the world around her and how to navigate it.  At this stage, she was just learning to sit up on her own.  I love the stabilizing grip she has on the afghan behind her.

Sensory Satisfacton

Monochrome, B&W, Rose, Flower, Flowers, Black, White
          Beauty, noun – a combination of qualities that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight.

This rose started out yellow in color.  I thought I’d experiment – removing the color, adding some texture and a touch of mystery. I like the result better than the  color version.

A Light Caress

Rose, Monochrome, Macro, Flower, B&W
The subtle tone and texture of this rose is accentuated by the soft light from a near by window.

It will be awhile before the flowers begin to bloom this spring.  In the interim, I picked up a few flowers from a florist to photograph.

This rose is actually a vibrant, two-toned, orange and yellowish color. Ironically, the color made it an excellent candidate for a monochrome treatment.

Break of Dawn (vintage)


This is an image that dates back a few years.  I was searching for it on this website and was surprised that I had never posted here.  It’s a digitally enhanced version of one of my most popular images – Break of Dawn.  (See the original HERE)  The original is a wonderful color image.  It would be my favorite of the two, but I also like the aged look this one receives from the monochrome and textured effects.

Baby Girl

Infant, Father, Daughter, Girl, Baby, Child, Family, B&W, Sepia, Monochrome
A young father relaxes with his infant daughter.  This is our son, Aaron, with week-old daughter, Eva.

I debated over whether to post the color version of this shot or stick with the sepia you see.  I think the seriousness of Aaron’s face (he was watching TV) made the monochrome image more effective.
