Tom's challenge this week is to compare color and black and white images. I grew up seeing b&w photos of Ansel Adams and others as Dad subscribed to Popular Photography. I also like high contrast images - color or b&w. I choose 4 images to consider for my header this week. I chose the steam engine for my header as it is a throwback to the time of black and white photography.
The train was restored and is now operated by Walkersville Southern Railroad. They are a volunteer organization of railroad enthusiasts who restore, maintain and operate equipment and track. The steam engine is a recent addition to their rolling stock.
Carroll Street Bridge and the water lilies are regular appearances here. I prefer the color version of them.
This image of a zinnia and a honey bee is a good candidate for black and white, especially when the contrast is pushed a little.
