Here are some experiences in monochrome photography. I took these as I went through our regional park yesterday. In the region where I live (I am in the Paris suburbs), there is a park that is called “Parc de Sceaux”. It is a big and beautiful park that is well-known by many Parisians and residents of the neighboring suburbs.
Armed with the Nikon, double layers of clothing( France has had bitterly cold weather since last week) and a healthy dose of courage, I went out to the park. Well, it wasn’t as bad as the days when the windchill factor left us all with chattering teeth. Yesterday was a breeze; the sun was up and it brought out the best in the winter scenes:
The lay of the land… a part of the canals at the park that are frozen stiff. This is the only non-monochrome picture. I liked the contrast of color of the grass against the icy parts.
Shadows and vegetal debris on the ice. The sign translates ” Access to the ice is forbidden”. Don’t worry about me…
Talking my quote from Mr T ” Pity the fool!!”.
I loved the play of the shadows of the poplars with the ice on the canal. Click on the picture to get more depth.
More frozen water on a pond.
A lonely row of trees and benches.
I enjoyed my photographic moments at the park 🙂
