As always, any subject, any style. 

 

Everyone has done a great job in this challenge!  Peter has posted a blog on B&W filters that's worth a look.  It gives you a guestimate on what to expect from various filters attached to your lens when shooting monochrome. 

 

Here's some fine examples of B&W prints from the past.

The photo of the Swedish coffe pot truck is by Carl Larsson from Gävle. It would be interesting to know the photographers behind the others...

I didn't take the time to look, but I would imagine Ansel Adams, (or someone who studied Adams work) was behind the camera on them.  Carl Larsson did a good job on this photo and print, lesser photographers would have ignored the slight contrast in the sky.  There are a few days when the sky is simply a dull monotone with no contrast, but too many prints would have us believe this is normal.  It takes a bit of work to bring out the contrast sometimes when it's dull.  I adds a bit of something to the print.

Those of you who have read my latest blog know that a 180˚ filter is cyan, the reciprocal of red and renders the red Vespa very dark.

Tollie, No. 7, a gear-driven Shay steam locomotive used by the Simpson Logging Company railroad around Shelton, Washington, is currently on static display in the center of Shelton.

The Simpson Logging Company operated and maintained an extensive network of 80 miles of track used to haul timber out of the surrounding mountains and to the mills in Shelton. These rail lines were in continual use for 120 years and became the last privately owned logging railroad in operation in the continental United States.

Lima Locomotive Works of Lima, Ohio, built 2,761 Shay locomotives between 1880 and 1945. Tollie, No. 7, was one of 20 Shays constructed in 1924.

Love them Shays, bluzman! 

 

Nikon D700  Nikkor AF 80-200 f2.8  D  ED

 

Except for the pink Lilies I didn't shoot anything this week.  If you will forgive me, I took the liberty of digging out a shot from Gettysburg last spring that I don't think I posted before. 

 

1/1000 f7.1 M  1000  80mm  Mississippi Memorial along Seminary Ridge.  Barksdale's  Mississippi Brigade were among the last to attack late on July 2, 1863.  The bronze memorial is among the most dramatic on the battlefield depicting a downed standard bearer with another soldier swinging his rifle as a club.  Mississippi fought hard and gained ground that day, but were unable to hold it in a counterattack later that evening that left a wounded General Barksdale on the field to be captured and would die early the next morning.
