The Weekend in Black and White


Contrasts.

Seen in Main Street, Letterkenny, but typical of many Irish streets.
Ancient and modern side by side.


Many black and white photos can be found through the links on the Home Page. They're worth a visit.

We only had a few days on the west coast, but we loved it and will be going back.

Lots of visual interest, I love the old gate and steps.

Like it!

Carver said...

Great shot. I like the way the modern sign is off to the side of the gate and doesn't interfere with the look.

Monica said...

Good to see the bare pavement, though! The white stuff looks often nice on pictures, but it is not my favourite in real life :) Best wishes!

Marie said...

I've never been as far as Letterkenny but Millstreet in county Cork (my mum's home village) was a place of contrasts. Nice pic!

Agree with Dimple; love the contrast. Interesting!

Irene said...

Cool shot and interesting. Looks great in BW. The sign is a bit disturbing ... I would crop the image to make me look straight through the gate.

Have a nice weekend!

Gunsside said...

Nice to see the old and new, looks great in black and white.
Have a nice week :)

Francisca said...

The closed gate doesn't deter me from wanting to go inside. The old and new stand well together; not at all jarring. Your image is charming in monochrome.

Laura said...

love the strength of these contrasts...excellent photo!

Carola said...

Great different structures and contrasts, perfect for black and white.
