Palace of Fine Arts – redo

Last week I posted some colored photos of the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco –
Patti, a fellow blogger at expressed curiosity about how these photographs might look in black and white.
I heard this as an invitation et voilà.
Some things I most enjoy about blogging: The support, feedback, exchange of ideas, and encouragement I experience between writers and photographers. I have learned so much from other bloggers and am continuously inspired by their work.
Thanks Patti

    • 🙂 The building does have a certain elegance to it. Built in 1915 for the Panama Pacific Exhibition I think San Francisco was perhaps aiming for a certain European quality of elegance and stature.


  1. Beautiful in monochrome, Arati. Nicely done.

  2. That really works in Black and white, Arati! I have a black and white photo of the Palace hanging around somewhere here that I took when black and white was still common, back in the early 60s. –Curt

  3. The black and white is striking. I really like the reflected pillars in the water.

  4. I really like the composition and the alignment of the negative focal space between the central pillars of the palace. The birds in the water add to the beauty of the scene. Very striking in B/W.
