I found this great shot yesterday and snapped it with my iPhone. There are some strong lines in this photo that really draw you into it, which is why I like it so much. I didn't originally shoot in black and white, but when you have such a simple tonal range it's usually better give black and white a shot. I have found that many of my photos that do not look good in color look simply amazing in black and white because it minimizes the distractions in the shot.
I've been shooting photos since I was 16 with my Father's Canon T70, an SLR 32mm film camera. I bought my own Canon Digital Rebel XT when I was 22 and have come a long way with my photography since then. Photography is my passion.
