  1. I love these. Shot in such an interesting way that accentuates the shapes and lines.

  2. It is an important choice.
    The story of people may change thereby.
    Monochrome lets me create the story of the imagination world.

  5. James, beautiful images. Love the angles and composition. I really like the monochrome and the tone and texture it gives to both images.

  16. Great shots, love the monochrome. That second one gives me a bit of vertigo, so I'd probably stick with the first! Happy Birthday James, hope you have a great one. Kathy

  23. Great shot for contrast! Ordinary things are usually overlooked!

    ReplyDelete
  24. The second photo is my favorite. The contrast of the uniform forms of the stairs contrast to the randomness of the clouds.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love these monochrome shots. Great angles :-)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Happy Birthday! I think I'd take the first staircase. I do hope I can make it to the top!

  30. Dizzying!
    Monochrome makes the viewer focus on the shapes and patterns more than the object. Nice.

  31. Wonderful patterns and lines in these photos, and so good in monochrome. I would take the right, I think.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great lines. I read somewhere being trained to keep right we tend to take the right...It helps at Disney World as the lines on the left are usually shorter. :)

  33. interesting in monochrome--but I absolutely loved it in color in your other post. The sky was an amazing contrast to the staircase.
