Street Scene, Rio de Janerio

The choice to make an image in black and white should be based on subject matter. This Old World scene, with its stone walls, brick street, and classic Volkswagen, is a perfect choice for a shot in black and white because we can enjoy all the textures and shapes without being distracted by color. That the photographer chose to fill more than half the frame with the street’s wonderful patterns underlines that the image is about the textural delight of this timeless place.
