Monochrome Weekend


Piccadilly Circus, London, England, May, 2000

Usually the photos I post have been taken very recently. However, I have a large number of older photographs taken in years past. Right now Tulsa is a mass of icy slush which does not always photograph well. So allow me to share some oldies with you.

While on a tour of England and France with Tulsa Community College in May of 2000 I took a large number of photographs with a film camera using Kodachrome. A CD of digital images were produced by the developer at the time the film was processed and printed. I have converted some of these to black and white (or sepia) using Paint.Net. Brightness and contrast was adjusted to satisfy myself. I will be sharing these from time to time. I hope you enjoy them.

This is a lovely shot - I think the fact that it's raining gives this picture so much more dimension!
Happy weekend!

I want to go back there so badly. It's absolutely beautiful. Oh, and I'm glad to hear you liked the tomato sausage dish. I may have to try it your way next time.

This one converted well. Trust your eye and your judgment. It's fun to go back through your archives and play with past images.

I imagine, at the moment, London may well be covered in snow. The novelty of pictures we are shown on the news of England experiencing a load of the white stuff is beginning to wear a bit thin now!

Hi thanks for visiting my blog. I followed the link to your road trip. Some years ago I had a wonderful week driving in New Mexico and on other occasions a week in California and New England. America has such wonderful scenery and vibrant cities.

I think it's a terrific Photo of a (what we think) typical London scene.
Beautifully done with the conversion!
