Experiment with Black & White

I initially took this photo a few weeks ago while vacationing in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. The photo is of the “Boardwalk in Inverness”. I liked the general composition but thought is lacked something… So I converted it to b&w.

Original photo shot as RAW with my Nikon D7100/18-105mm Nikkor lens, processed in Lightroom CC 2015 & Photoshop CC 2015.5

Journey from Desperation to Hope

Journey

Journey from Desperation to Hope – inspired by the era of the Great Depression in North America and John Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath”.. A time when many able bodied people fled the farms and rural country homes to seek employment and prosperity in the urban centers of the USA and Canada… Some found prosperity however most encountered disillusionment…
