I will remember 2014 as the year I embraced monochrome photography. Much as I love colour, I have become totally enchanted with black and white pictures.
Light, lines and moments — I found myself shooting those a lot this year, consciously and unconsciously — and black and white is ideal for bringing out the best of those kinds of images.
I have also started studying some of the masters recently, and was lucky enough to receive a signed print by famous Magnum photographer, Elliott Erwitt, which now hangs proudly on my wall, and which I will cherish forever.
I joined a few groups that share black and white photography and have been so inspired by the work posted there.
I have a feeling 2015 will also be a black and white kind of year!

Wow! I think I’ve commented before how much I love your New York photos- they are amazing! Seriously masterful! I have always loved black and white- I used to pore over Life Magazine as a child, and this year I gifted the family with photo books of the grand-boys all in black and white. I am going to look up Elliott Erwitt- I want to learn more- and you are an inspiration! I love today’s collection- as I said, MASTERFUL! (I think there are too many exclamation marks in this comment- but that’s how I feel about your work!!!)
You certainly have embraced b&w photography and exquisitely so! Your work is phenomenal in any medium!
Fabulous images, love your embrace of black and white!
Nice to see some Abaco in your gallery – and some NYC. All the best for 2015. RH

Wonderful images! Even I, a non-B&W afficionado, can really appreciate these first rate photos. Great work – I look forward to more in 2015. Happy new year!
Love this look so timeless and classic. I love b/w’s don’t know why I don’t do more and a good reminder to do more in 2015. Happy New Year.
