So, picture this: bustling London streets, a melting pot of cultures, and an ever-changing urban landscape - that's my daily canvas for snapping street photos. There's something about the mix of architectural wonders, diverse faces, and the vibrant pulse of city life.
One Friday in February, I decided to capture the essence of my daily grind in black-and-white street photography. It was like embarking on a visual journey, documenting the ebb and flow of city life from my morning commute to the Barbican Centre and back.
My day kicked off with the usual hustle and bustle. Londoners were on the move, each with their own story to tell. It was like watching a living, breathing cityscape unfold before my lens, filled with anticipation and purpose.
One highlight of the day was my visit to the Barbican Centre, a hotspot for art lovers like me. Armed with my trusty camera, I wandered through its labyrinth of corridors, capturing moments and moods for about 20 minutes. But let me tell you, finding my way out afterwards was a whole adventure in itself!
Now, let's talk about why I chose to shoot in black and white. It's all about capturing the timeless essence of the city, stripping away distractions and focusing on the raw emotions and beauty of each scene. It's amazing how a simple switch to monochrome can turn ordinary moments into extraordinary snapshots, giving you a peek into the soul of city life
