Clown 2

Looking at the clown photo from yesterday I decided to return to it for another look. It’s a photo that I am going to stay with but wanted to see what it looked like with the colour removed. Although this version still needs work, I prefer it this way. I certainly like the Stephen King feel.

I am a little bit relieved for this to happen because since arriving in the South Island 2 months ago I have only been able to make images in colour and was beginning to wonder whether my black and white days were over.

There was a long period of time some years ago when I only worked in black and white. My ideal is to be able to work in both ways.
