4-17-14 It’s A Gray Gray World

“To the complaint, ‘There are no people in these photographs,’ I respond, There are always two people: the photographer and the viewer.” 
Ansel Adams

 

I took a walk along the river early today from 23rd to 42nd Street. I decided that I was going to play and decided to shoot with the intention of going black and white with the images.

Once I imported them I decided to play a bit with the Lightroom effect filters.

Once upon a time this is how we “looked” at the world. For too long, in my opinion, photographers thought something along the lines of:

“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!” 
Ted Grant
