Architecture in Black & White

This week’s Black and White challenge on Lost in Translation is by the guest blogger Cardinal Guzman

Prompt:  Find some interesting architecture somewhere in your local environment (it doesn’t have to be the house next door, but somewhere you can return to fairly easy). When you’re shooting try to look for interesting angles, lines, curves and/or details that people might ignore. Try shooting from afar, see how it feels, then try some close-ups.

In my second guest post that’s coming up in three months (on the 12th of April), you’ll be returning to the same place that you shoot now

<SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA>For this challenge I chose a church in a town about an hour’s drive away..

The plaque out the front reads:  174

I took these photos with an old digital point-and-shoot camera and converted them to B&W in Photoshop.    I’ll return later in the year with a different camera.

It’s an unusual building for this part the world (southern Australia) and I’m not sure if it still functions as a church.  It was all locked up when I took these photos but it would be interesting to get inside and see the interior.   I’ll have to try and find out more about the building before my return visit.

  1. You have chosen such a beautiful and architecturally interesting church, Suzanne! Original angles, revealing it in different ways – my favourite is the last shot. Something about the sharpness, created by the sun and shadows does it for me 🙂

  2. My favourite is the last one I think – the angle of shooting works really well. My contribution to this challenge is viewing: I’ve just seen the b&w splendour of Paweł Pawlikowski’s “Ida”.

Please comment. I love knowing what you think.
