B&W Europe Photos

I still haven't finished posting my photos from Europe on here but here's a few of the B&W 120 film photos made with my Mamiya 645.

A note on my film: The borders of the negatives are shown because my particular view of photography requires that I show what I saw when I took the photo. Hence, the images are not cropped. I rarely if ever dodge and burn. The only adjustments I make are to brightness and contrast - especially since my film of choice is the newer Kodak TMY-2 whereas this is Kodak's older 400TX, so a lot of my film turned out grainy and overdeveloped - I was being willfully dense when I developed it. C'est la vie.

The following three photos are of the Sony Center in Berlin and were hand held at night...




The Cathedral in Cologne.


The lead covering on Renzo Piano's Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome.


Richard Meier's Jubilee Church in (the ghetto of) Rome.



Pantheon in Rome - excellent.


Random Rome. Plants grow everywhere and here some vines had turned into a shade for this small gas station. It reminds me of those bridges that people grow in Asia.


Pompidou Center in Paris by Piano and Rogers. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would.


Lundgaard & Tranberg Arkitekter's Tietgen Dormitory in Copenhagen. This was one of if not my favorite contemporary building I've ever visited. The concept/program actually works to form a community.


BIG's (Bjarke Ingles Group) 8 House in Copenhagen.


Big's Mountain Dwelling in Copenhagen.
