More About Color

To continue our conversation about color, started in the last post, here’s a photograph developed both in color and black and white. In my opinion, yours certainly may differ, the monochrome version packs more punch.

The lady’s hand gesture, hat and open mouth tell a story that don’t need any color embellishment.

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

  1. They are two very different photographs. I like them both, but for very different reasons. I love the shading of the colors in the first, but you’re right that the monochrome one emphasizes the gesture.

I'd love to hear from you
