Leaving the Fort - Old Bent's Fort Part 5


Southwest architecture has always fascinated me. I took this same picture last year at the fort but submitted it in color. This time I am trying black and white to keep with my theme lately.

Tomorrow we move on or perhaps back. We also stopped at Greensburg, Kansas to see what recovery has been made since last years tornado. I have a few pictures to share from there.

Hope you all have a terrific day.

Yes, it absolutely had to be in black and white. I love the lines here with the shadows from the roof and the log.

Although harsh daytime sun can hinder a photograph, here it really makes it. The edges separating the wall's various layers are given depth by the shadows.

The long shadows from the horizontal poles protruding from the wall give a great sense of where the sun is.

Your choice of black and white, of course, enhances all of this. FOr many years light and shadow were all photographers had. Great photo, Mike.
