Black and White from the Past

For most of the pandemic I have been taking courses at F64 Elite by Blake Rudis. April’s challenge is to submit 2 dramatic black and white images for a possible critique. I converted four in my archives, being sure to have some absolute black and white in each, and sent in the first two below. Blake also posts many free tutorials on YouTube. I am also enjoying PixImperfect tutorials by Unmesh Dinda on the YouTube.

Pastel Doors

I saw these doors while on my way home in Greenwich Village. It was a lovely spring day and the colors of these doors reminded me of Easter.

Manhattan Doors

Two doors on West 25th Street and West 9th Street in Manhattan, New York.
The windows next to the 9th Street door was too good to pass up.
For today’s Thursday Doors.

42nd Street Buildings

Before 2000 I used to work nearby at TAMS doing GIS. In the 60’s my stepfather worked in the Chanin Building as a market research manager for Richardson Merrill. We used to sometimes eat at one of the last Horn & Hardart automats nearby.
