090811 Monochrome Tractors

Although this picture was taken in colour I have converted it into monochrome. The lack of colour seems to complement the boldness of the tyre tread and the starkness of the number plates. I love the two men at the centre of the photograph with their hands folded. You can while away the hours imagining their conversation.

Great shot! yes, I can imagine them comparing engine information or "Back in the Day" stories.

I enjoy this site also, Alan.
But the type is hard, at least here in the USA to read.
Dark on dark as it were.

Black and white is a neat expression. I really like the photo. I use to develop black and white for a high school yearbook assignment that I did for two years. The most fun was the developing of black and white.

Thanks for the comments.
John F : I had no idea the blog was coming out black on black! (it appears black on white on mine). I have changed the template. Hopefully this should be easier on the eye.
