back to my roots – back to b&w. paul lester&squot;s post never have a favourite weapon made me think about the influence of my preferences and the development of my photography.
black and white were my photographic origins as a student, and some of those pictures i still do regard very high. now b&w is much easier, sean mcpucket&squot;s bibble plugin andy even allows to choose film/developer/paper combinations for that old-time grainy look – i don&squot;t know how realistic those settings are, but frankly i don&squot;t care if my digital tri-x matches the real one, i prefer that contrast distribution over dark and light parts of the histogram is pleasing, and so be it.
my hometowns spa garden with the pump room produced the subjects where i tried to re-vive my b&w skills. here everybody waits for the guests and patients to arrive, the effects of the economic decline will be obvious in the next weeks even here in the gardens.
