Weekly Black & White Photo

The Guardians

This image was created by using a Point & Shoot camera. The ISO was 80 and was exposed for 1/640 sec @f/5.6.

I took this photograph on a Saturday morning while doing some street photography on Baltimore St. in Cumberland. The sunlight was coming in at a good angle and for me it just made these “Guardians” just stand out as they protected the entrance to this building.

The scene just looked like something you might see in an old fashioned Black & White movie. Of course I was visualizing this in my imagination as the original photo was taken in color. Sometimes you just have to let your imaginary senses dictate what the finished image might be.

Here, it resulted in “ The Guardians “…

  1. Very nice! Even before I read your commentary...I was thinking "Wizard of Oz":) I love the lighting and the shadows give the "lions" a power presence.
