Here is this week’s  52 Week Photo Challenge:  Week 3 – Black and White.  This is another new challenge that is starting up from The Girl That Dreams Awake.  If you don’t know her, you should check out her blog.

I made this photo back in February during a visit to New York City using my iPhone.

“A world which sees art and engineering as divided is not seeing the world as a whole.”
–  Sir Edmund Happold

The varied and beautiful architecture in New York City took me completely by surprise. It must have been quite the place back in the late 19th century. I love fine details and could spend hours sitting in front of a building like this and drinking in all the fantastic stonework. It’s also nice to see how well these buildings have been preserved. New York, at least parts of it, seems to have largely escaped the wave of ‘urban renewal’ that swept through many major cities back in the 70’s, where beautiful old edifices were sacrificed for parking lots or concrete monoliths.

I decided to process this in black and white because it brings out the detail and texture better for me and masks the distractions of the colourful billboards advertising the current show.
