It is February 1st, and time to open a new photo Gallery! When we had our first B&W theme last March, there was tremendous interest in seeing it resurface in the future. Well, that time is now. Photos can be taken with your digital camera in B&W mode, they can be scans of old B&W photos, or they can be color photos that have been modified with your favorite photo software. “Toned” photos (sepia, duotone, etc.) will also be accepted. Finally the subjects of the photos can be either prototype or model.

As always, please adhere to the following posting requirements: photo files should be no more than 80kb @ 72ppi in size - even if downloading from a remote server or website - and can be no more than 7 inches in width (to prevent viewers from having to scroll back and forth to see the entire photo or read text on the same page).

Photo submissions not meeting the above requirements will be resized by the Moderator.

Now remember, this is my first month as Moderator of this Forum. Apparently, the success of this first month will determine if I will continue in this role. (Some have hinted that if I have a poor showing this month, that I will be demoted to “Coal Bin Cleaner”, so please help me out.)

I'll help you out, Bruce. I don't have a finished scene, but I do have a finished interior. Here is the engine room to the fan house.

Nope, no way, no how, ferget it, you don't get off the hook that easily! Besides, Bags has already laid claim to the coal bin. So you're stuck with the Photo Forum.

Here is my specimen;



I love the B&W shots!
I wish I could do sepia tone on my photo program.

Great idea Bruce . This was very popular last year as I recall so I hope to get my posting problems out of the way so I can join in this month . Fortunately my camera does take pics in sepia so I have a couple of choices .
The first three pics are good ones .

Great pictures so far! We are off to a good start.

That scene looks even better in B&W. Gives it a certian feel.
