Broad Street Blues

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

This is a black and white version of a photo that I posted on my other blog last month.

It will be my post for The Weekend in Black and White.

  5. Yes, the contrast is great! I like both versions, color and bw. For some reason I feel the motion in this one more.

  9. I like both very much (I'm a sucker for night shots!) I love the way the mood changed between the two versions. I like this one very much - I'm also a sucker for high contrast!

  10. The B&W version sings James. Been there, done that -- trying to cross Broad Street is a fun game.

  11. Superb capture.. The B/W and Sephia go well together, don't they?, in capturing & reflecting similar mood..!
    Have a great week end..

  12. I loved this shot in colour and I like this one as well. Everything seems to be moving faster in b&w.

    Wow! How do you do it every week!!!
    This has so much light and energy with those fast streaks of cars juxtaposed with the crisp stillness of the lighted buildings.
    Fine work!

  14. Great night shot, full of movement, but the static figure in the middle makes it.
