I love colour so much that I rarely photograph anything in black and white.
And Mexico is one of those colourful countries where black and white isn’t an option.
Except when I saw this stone eagle at the Monument of the Revolution in Mexico City. The colour image didn’t do justice to the heavy texture of the stone. And I found myself turning the dial to black and white, which on my camera is called hi-contrast monochrome. Here the texture of the stone really popped out! Another view of the stone eagle, this one also in colour.Next to get the black and white treatment were some statues, one a black stone Neptune and then a couple of white marble ladies, scenes where the colour distracted from smooth texture of the stone.More of Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week Challenge: Black and White.
