Another stunner! Not been able to master black and white myself as yet, more practice needed...

Any chance you could offer a little explanation of these photos of the day? Like where and when taken... what you you trying to encapsulate... ta ;-)

Hi Andrew,

Ahh, that's a tough question. :)
Even after 5 years of art school, I always struggle explaining my personal work.

This particular shot was taken in the industrial area of Seattle.
I tend to be drawn to places and things that evoke a sense of melancholy, particularly with my black and white work. I want the images to feel a bit like memories, so I try to give them a sense of dreaminess.

Honestly, I try not to over-think this type of work because I have found that when I do, I get in my own way. Does that make sense?

I don't think I am too helpful here...:)
