DC in black and white

Yesterday, I took my folks up to D.C. for the morning. I was struck by how the architecture and buildings were so solid and somewhat ageless. In black and white, the same frames could have been pictures taken 25, 50 or 100 years ago. While I get you European folks may be rolling your eyes, for a girl who grew up in America's West, it's somewhat amazing. Heh.


Love the photos. I'm a huge fan of black-and-white photography. There's something clean and honest about it, and it cuts through the distractions provided by pretty colors and brings out the details, the shadows and the light.

Great photos. They work well in b&w. From an Englishman's view they look quite young though!Reminds me what a heritage we have over here. Timeless nonetheless.
