Exactly. The 2 part is not so common here.

Really excellent composition. This shot has a lot of depth to it, as well as engaging visual contrast.

Thanks, Peter. Surprisingly, I submitted this image to one group, and it was declined because the composition was not good enough...

Double-black, double-white. This one has a timeless quality to it. Well, it's only a black guy and an overweight white woman in modern summer gear crossing that little street, but still it seems like a glimpse into the past. Especially since this street appears completely deserted.

The shadows, the detail, and, obviously, the film material you used do add up as a very fascinating view into a probably not very inportant part of the city.

Smashing good work!

Danke, Bruno. The streets were deserted because of the heat on one side, because the city also pushes life on its boundaries, making the center a big museum, for a few wealthy people. The films helps me think in black and white, something I struggle with with digital, where I have the feeling to loose something when I remove the colors.

It's probably very true that you're going to loose something when turning a color shot into b/w. When I do that, I try to radically re-think and re-imaging the existing shot, so as to get an angle that wasn't there before. Still, as your work with b/w film proves, that stuff has a character and life of its very own. And no digital wizardry will live up to it.

Yes, I find it necessary to think it black and white, and that's where using film forces me to do so at shooting time.
Wizards? I don't have such tool. Maybe I should!
