Photo101: Mason Temples in Harper

Today’s theme : Study architectural forms, and also train your eye to look for shots that will translate well in black and white.

    wow the difference throught he window of the colour and black and white seems to tell such a different story in the colour i got distracted by the lush vegetation outside but in the black and white one concentrates on the bleak room inside and wonders what happened in there x
