Esso Black & White

I think black & whites of old gas stations are somewhat cliche....just couldn't resist this one in North Carolina.

 

The one thing I miss about digital photography is Black & White! Photographing in monotone just looks flat...I think the digital camera tries too hard to reach 18% grey. I converted the color version using channels in Photoshop - here, the blue channel looked the best.

 

Some of my old black & white photos are scanned into this set (along with newer digital conversions): www.flickr.com/photos/beadmobile/sets/72157601798567210/
