Black and White Photo Challenge - Feb 19 - Perspective

I'm pleased to have been invited to participate in Black and White Photo Challenge especially after viewing the site and seeing so many fabulous photos.

This photo was shot at Seaside Cabanas located right here on Caye Caulker, just before shooting the wedding on Feb 14. The color version (Stairway to Heaven) was in a previous post.

The photo below was my second favorite.

My favorite part of this photo are the soft palm shadows on the sand. I was standing in the shadow of the building but shooting into the sun and that's why you don't see any water and beach beyond the retaining wall.

For more black and white photos visit my flickr pages.

The b/w stairway looks even better than the colour version.

I thought the same, that the b&w stairway looks more dramatic.

Amazing how b&w pics. have more mood, drama...this weekend I will definitely check out the b & white pics.

B&W photos are soooo interesting sometimes. I really enjoying looking at them. Good luck on the competition!

I loved the colour version - the way the walls seem to glow.

Is there a reason why only visitors with blogger accounts can post comments?

I have one, but switched to a new site recently.

Thanks guys for all the accolades. Sometimes a b&w photo is more interesting than the color version. Although I liked how the walls glowed too. I changed the setup on my comments Ria, to cut down on gutless trolls who like to hit and run. The locals have found out about the blog and are stalking me.
