Wild Weekly Photo Challenge – Black & White

Hello all! This is my entry for this week's photo challenge: black & white

Государственный исторический музей

So this is a picture of the State Historical Museum in Moscow's famous Red Square. I think this week was challenging because really, the art form of black and white is somewhat lost in the age of digital film since any picture can be converted. In deciding a picture for this week, I looked for something that would be worthy of the drama of black & white. I settled on this one because of the buildings crisp architectural lines highlighted by the lighting of the sky in the background. Hope you like it!

Wild Weekly Photo Challenge – Look Up!

This is my first entry on the Wild Weekly Photo Challenge, and I hardly even have my blog set up, so please excuse the plainness! I chose a variety of photos that captured my attention based on either lighting or color. Enjoy!
