I happened to be in Pensacola, Florida a few weeks ago and took time to do some architectural photos. The monthly challenge topic of windows and doors was coming up and I decided to go downtown and take some shots of some of the buildings. I started working on the images and decided to do almost all of them as black and white. Here are a few of the shots I decided to keep.
This first shot shows the windows in an apartment above one of the downtown stores. I liked the shadows of the flags on the side of the building.
The next shot is a museum in one of the old historic buildings. I decided against entering this one because I felt it was a little too busy. It might be interesting to do a triptych using each floor as a standalone shot. That would simplify the scene but still show the whole front.
The shot below was one of the corner sections of the same museum.
I took quite a few shots of an old bank building with an interesting facade.
I think the shot below is a little more dynamic than the straight on view above.
There are some old historic wooden buildings downtown and I thought the window below offered a lot of texture and lines which work well for black and white shots. I am entering this shot in the digital category.
The shot below is my favorite and I am going to print it as an 8 x 16 and enter it into the printed monochrome category.
Until next time —
