Our “Black & White” Galleries have always been one of our most popular themes. Since it has been about a year and a half since we have had a dedicated B&W Gallery, I thought that it was time to once again go with this ‘old time’ favorite.

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. If you haven't played around with B&W photos, now is your chance!

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

For those interested, a complete index of previous Photo Gallery Themes and their links can be found here: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=8455

I'll start off with this night shot that was taken in color and made B&W using a free photo editing package called paint.net

A very cold day in Orbisonia (actually Rockhill Furnace) in 1978.

After fooling with this B&W stuff a little, I'm amazed at how much a scene takes on such a different look from the color photo.

I have always felt that B&W renditions of model photos tend to look more realistic than their color counterparts, probably because few modelers can get all the colors perfect. Anyway, here's my contribution for this month.
