Over the years I have shot these same scenes in colour. But I do think these work very well in black and white. I had my DSLR set to monochrome black and white, shot raw, got colour on import, had to convert back to black and white in post processing.
Window reflections make for interesting compositions. I think anyway.
As I walk around with my camera there are often things that just pop out at me and catches my eye. These shots were taken yesterday as I walked around Windsor. I kept these in black and white as I shot them in the monochrome setting of my camera.

Spotted in windows of homes.
Windsor was super busy today. So many interesting people and scenes to take photos of that I could hardly keep up with it all. But fun it was.
I also learned something today. I set my camera to Monochrome, black and white. It was interesting to look at the back of the camera and see the results in black and white. I did wonder though if when I loaded them onto the computer if they would remain in black and white. You see I shoot in RAW, I have always shot RAW as I like to process my own photos. Lo and behold they did convert to colour so I had to do my usual black and white processing.
I also loaded a roll of black and white Ilford film into my F80 and took a few shots with that but I did not use the whole roll yet so those will have to wait until I finish the roll.
Here are just a few that I quickly picked out from todays outing.
He was looking at me until I put my camera up to take the shot then he looked down. Can’t win them all.

Pigeons are a nuisance but they do make for a great photo
A few more of my shots from Windsor. I so love black and white.
My photography bug has truly bitten and bitten hard where now I feel the urge to get out and about with my camera. However, the work life gets in the way of that. I am thankful for days off though and hoping to get out there and get to shooting.
Here are a few images, which I mostly shot in Windsor on Saturday. I found some window displays that were interesting as well as a shop full of “antiques”. Now I cannot say for certain if the whole shop of stuff was “antiques” or made to look like they are.
Antiques or not? You decide.
The photo on the right was shot a few months ago decided to post it here as it fits the theme.
