Seven B&W photos.

Seven photographs that perhaps hadn't been "good" enough to be included in a previous blog post or feature in one of my scrapbook layouts.
Playing with various Picmonkey editing tools and changing the look of them was great fun and very easy to do.
Jill @ lifeimagesbyjill (another FB friend, is an award winning published photographer with a down to earth, easy, friendly style of writing) who shared information on street photography on Mosaic Monday last week.
In her post she included some wonderful urban black and white images which increased my interest in this style of photography.
However, since the rural tranquility of green and bucolic Normandy doesn't lend itself too easily to that gritty urban style I looked through the photographs taken on our trip to Budapest last year to find a couple of images to play with.
As you can see an ordinary shopping street in central Pest, on the east side of the Danube, has quite a different look once I cropped the image and applied picmonkey's super b/w effect.

If like me your looking to improve your photography skills then I really recommend popping over to Jill's blog.
I know that I'm going to be looking out for more street images to capture next time we go travelling.
