Monochrom Saturday. Day 14 - Part 3

This is a followup to the Part 1 and the Part 2 of the Monochrom Saturday. My wife and I spent some considerable amount of time in the downtown of Los Angeles and the amount of pictures I took just wouldn't fit in one post. I've also taken some pictures of Camilla that day, which I like to share here.

The DTLA is a gem for the architectual detail. Every time I go there I feel like I'm at a huge warehouse filled with pictures. I just need a bag big enough to take them home. Fortunately, this time, my SD card was large enough to take some of it home. 

Saturday's weather was exceptional for photography. Because of the moving clouds I were able to get a mutitude of lighting situations from harsh light to complete overcast. 

Taking portraits with the B+W #29 Dark Red Filter is like cheating. Skin tones always look perfect and gentle.

Camilla pointed me to how cool it might be to shoot this one. I closed down the aperture to almost blend the background building and the foreground railings.
