Today’s Photo 101 assignment sent us to find architecture that was just as striking in black & white as in color — if not moreso.
I wandered a few blocks from the Syracuse University campus and came across this Methodist church, built some time after 1914.
It was a cold and blustery St. Patrick’s Day afternoon, so I didn’t give it as much time as I had hoped. But the clouds and temperamental sunshine made things interesting.
I like the black and white better than the color. It’s a little spooky, and reminds me of the work of Ed Mooney, a photographer/blogger in Ireland who captures great b&w images of ancient cemeteries and churches there. But I think the red doors on the church are pretty cool, too.
