Some of these images are 'true' Black & White, meaning shot on panchromatic film, while some are converted from color. You'll probably recognize a few from other locations within this site.
Most of this is simply experimental, since I am no master of black & white by any stretch. I greatly favor color images, but on occasion the tones and contrast beg to be reduced to monochrome. What can I say? I'm a sucker for begging...
