2018 – The Best of Black and White

As much as I love color there is something about black and white images that has always appealed to me. Inevitably when I go out a shoot a bunch of photos a number of them (maybe 10%) will scream out at me to be represented monochromatically.

Here are one of my favorite black and white images, from each month in 2018:

January:
