Monochrome Oktober Day 13

Each year I dedicate the month of Oktober (German Spelling, in case you were wondering) to the beautiful art of Black & White photography. Each day I will be posting a new Black & white image

I have a passion for this style of photograph, as it makes you concentrate more on the subject and really brings out the emotion of the image.

In the post processing phase, it is more than just removing the colour out of a picture but finding the right combination of tones and shades of grey that work within an image. With applications such as Photoshop you can change these mixtures to a great degree to give you more or less of those tones.

You can experiment with your photos as I am sure that your smartphone will have an editing section in it (both the iPhone Camera App and the Facebook App do this) and play around with the different settings.

Share your images with everyone by posting them to my facebook page

London Town

Teil 2 unserer Reise mit einem kurzen Besuch in die Stadt zurück nach London, um den O2-Center zurück entlang der Themse auf dem Wasser-Taxi durch die Stadt zu besuchen und dann Westminster. Eine gute Möglichkeit, die meisten von London, ohne zu viel zu Fuß zu sehen!

Part 2 of our trip back home to London with a quick visit into town to visit the O2 centre and then back along the Thames on the water taxi through the city to Westminster. A great way to see most of London without too much walking!
