805 – B&W photography

There were two articles in this month’s B&W photography that grabbed my attention. But it was more of a relationship between where I live and the two pieces.

The first B&W article by Jim Bailey has some really quite lovely pictures of snow covered mountain regions. I can appreciate the beauty the pictures show, but to be honest, they don’t really do an lot for me.

The second piece is entitle Silent Coast by Rob Ball. Rob visits many UK coastal towns. He looks at the attractions and the communities. I get the impression that Robs images are almost intended to convey a feeling of dilapidation.

People talk of the heart of a town. What is that? How do you depict it? Every town has its good and its bad bits. The window frame may be up for restoration. It’d dilapidation May even be used as a symbol of the chequered history of the town.

Is it a good thing to want to picture the heart of a town, even if that heart isn’t in a good state? To what end? How do I do that? Just wondering.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
