This Monochrome Monday post features part two of my snow day photography from last week.
Thank you for stopping by, have a great week!
This cityscape in downtown Greensboro presented a composition challenge. Horizontal (slightly wide angle) or vertical (slightly telephoto). Which do you think makes the best composition? I’d appreciate your feedback.
Thanks again for taking time to visit my blog and weighing in on this composition question. For the best viewing experience, select an image to view a high resolution version.
The rear view of this old building in downtown Greensboro caught my eye on a ride to lunch a few weeks ago. Since then, I’ve visited the site several times. Once after a light morning snow, and another where I was shooed away from the tracks by a railroad employee. The front and interior of this building was recently restored and is now the home of a popular restaurant.

This series will feature photos from my 2017 backlog of unprocessed prospects. This first composition was taken in Winston-Salem looking back across Sixth Street to the old RJR Bailey Power Plant. It’s now part of my Winston-Salem Cityscapes Gallery.
My morning walk into work offers some interesting architectural vignettes ready to snap – if I bring my camera to work. Early last month, I finally did!

Here are some street scene vignettes I found interesting during my recent expedition around downtown Greensboro. The shapes, textures, tonality and lighting seemed to all contribute to a nice composition. I hope you enjoy!
With it’s multi-level spillway, the High Point Municipal Dam at City Lake Park is like a large water sculpture. As I approached the dam, I saw this wonderful composition opportunity. But before I could get out my camera, the couple got-up and started towards their car. Fortunately they kindly agreed to return to the table so I could shoot a few compositions. Thanks to Debbie and Brian!

Last week I had dinner in downtown Winston-Salem with my photographer friend Owens Daniels. Afterwards, we both grabbed our camera and set out on a local street photography expedition. I had so much fun. We met some nice folks, found some great scenes and Owens shared many of his proven street photography tips.
- I must do more street photography.
- Shoot with a photographer friend. We grow through shared experience.
- Learn how to see without thinking. I’m reading a good book on this now – “Opening the Good Eye”.
- Develop your own style.
- Don’t be afraid of high ISO! My D750 higher ISO settings look great, Lightroom does a great job of minimizing noise, and I usually add film grain to the composition in my workflow.
