I was in Aurora, Illinois a couple of weeks ago and wandered around the downtown taking photos. It's the damnedest place. Practically deserted yet scrupulously clean. The whole place reminded me of a movie backlot with a beautiful river running through it.
These black and white shots are a new study for me. It is a very interesting way to learn more about light and translating color, in which the photos are taken, and then transformed and manipulated using Lightroom.
Look for more to come
