A photograph is usually looked at - seldom looked into.
Ansel Adams, 1902-1984
Normanton Church, Rutland

A gallery of black and white images. I see monochrome as a way to reduce a photograph to its essentials of shapes, tones, and textures. Shadows and highlights add meaning to a black and white image, where they can detract from a colour composition. Reducing colour to shades of grey adds subtlety and depth to a picture.
