QVB, Sydney, NSW, Australia.
This building is such a photographers paradise with its wonderful architecture. When I visited it last week, there were perhaps half a dozen wandering the halls of the top floor. As I was just about to set up for this shot one of them engaged me in conversation, she was obviously local. She saw that I was setting up to take shots of this stained glass window and said, “you know this shot looks great as a black & white.”
It is interesting that a shot that is clearly perfect for colour also has a story to be told in monochrome, strip back the dazzle of colour and you get the pure image and the story shouting at you. I love black and white it challenges you to think more about composition, contrast and story.
