MM 2-21: Remembering Brussels in 2012

We visited five countries on our European vacation in 2012. Belgium was the last of the five and we spent the last two days in that country exploring the city of Brussels. After walking around the Grand Place for awhile we ventured out to some nearby streets and came across this entrance to Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, the famous 19th century shopping arcade.

This is my entry for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge over on Leanne Cole’s website.  I was fascinated by the shadows cast through the arcade’s glass roof and thought this would make an interesting composition in monochrome.

Drop by Leanne’s website today to see what other photographers are doing in monochrome these days. And see here for my original posting on Les Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert, including the original color photo.

    Nice treatment. I’ve done stuff like that before, and I’d forgotten how much I like that look.

  2. Love the development on this image. It feels like a painting or perhaps a drawing. Nice work!
