Black and White in Tbilisi, Georgia

The depth of texture and form in the buildings in Tbilisi, Georgia make shooting in black and white a real pleasure….

Side Streets – Riga

Narrow Cobblestone Street

I love to walk the cobblestone side streets and back alleys… especially in the early morning when no one is out..or at least, very few people.. There always seems to be the straggling partier from the night before..

The streets are quiet..almost lonely

Galerija Daug

 

I meander aimlessly through the narrow lanes…

 

Cars Not Allowed

 

It’s a great time to shoot doors and windows..

Old Wood and Cobblestone

 

4 Sets of Shutters

or wander into hidden courtyards that are often dead-ends..

Shot(s) for the Day – Doors Revisted

A few more of my favorite subject… I look for unique colors, weathering.. textures.. It seems like older buildings and structures often have the best doors to shoot.. Or maybe that’s just me..:)

Weathered Stain in Old Rock

 

Abandoned Pair

I usually fill up an entire memory card with doors… and windows..

It makes you wonder..what goes on behind those doors..what is the life led.. what are the memories..the hopes.. the dreams

Shot of the Day – Kyiv, Ukraine

Old Stone BW

There are all kinds of things to shoot in the world.. Landmarks, landscapes, people, events.. But what makes me happiest, is just walking around looking for the extraordinary in the ordinary..

This building is in Kyiv, Ukraine.. not far from the Dnipro River.. Just an old brick building.. But just looking at it made me wonder. What went on behind those walls? What could this building tell us? How much of history has passed by these windows? And I am still curious …

By the way, as a bit of self promotion, which I don’t do very often, this print is available at Fine Art America , as are others.. Have a look around.. Prints make wonderful gifts!  Have to pay the bills somehow lol

Happy Travels!
