“A woman who rules or dominates a family, group, or state; specifically: a mother who is head and ruler of her family and descendants.”…Mirriam-Webster

Looks like one to me.

Black and White..A Valid Alternative

In the beginning when I started shooting street scenes, I did them all in color. Not as an esthetic choice but more because I never really considered there was any alternative.

Boy was I wrong.

When the lighting and  background shadows are right, it is very possible black and white will bring a lot of additional value to table. I’m new to this monochromatic way of thinking but it has plenty of power when properly used.
