We arrived back in Canada last night after four months in warm southern climes living on a sailboat. While I am glad to be back for many reasons, I’m having a bit of trouble letting go of the sun, warmth and light, which all enliven me. But I do have photographs…
I have shared on this blog some of my images of land and waterscapes and flora and fauna — all in colour. But as a lover of black and white photography, I thought I’d share one of my favorite shots before I let go of the past and immerse myself in the present — the unique beauty of spring in eastern Canada.
This photo was taken in West Palm Beach the day I attended a wonderful exhibition of Annie Liebowitz photos with a friend. The midday sun was hot and strong and not really conducive to many of the kind of images I am often drawn to. But it was great for casting shadows and highlighting architecture. And that lends itself very well to black and white.
I love how the strong diagonal lines and the rectangular shapes of the light building are stamped with the shadows of the palm trees — the iconic shape of the tropics everywhere.
There’s just something about black and white images that tends to stick with me….
