Southern Illinois University in Black and White

Of late, I have been producing more black and white photos.

I enjoy the timelessness of black and white.

  1. There is always that aura of classiness in a black and white photo! I used to admire the works of Ansel Adams too who largely took black and white photos to exhibit. Another medium that I quite like to see is Sepia tone photos. These are also awesome as reminds me of the time gone by too. Thanks for the share BJ!

    1. Thank you, my friend. Black and White, lends, a mystery and some magic to a photo, I think.

  2. Looks wonderful – and what a fabulous quality to your b&w shots!
