Monochrome Madness – Abandoned Beauty


This is a monochrome version of a set of photographs I did over a year back. From those sets, I created a portfolio called “Abandoned Beauty”. Maybe, next week, I shall write more about that project.

The light in the car came from an off-camera flash that my son was holding. Indeed, I would even say that he is the one who suggested that he angle the flash into the car.

For those who are curious, I used a Topaz B&W filter here. I used a low key effect, and then applied a dodging brush on the side of the car to bring back some detail.



  1. I must confess that I do not have the nuances of Art Appreciation, but Your photographs touches strings in my heart, so much so that I had difficulties in giving a ‘like’ for this. Painful, You know!

    And that might be my best compliment to Your work. I love Cars, and an Abandoned one, searched out and so well presented, deserves Kudos!

    Love to You son, the Junior Artist with such Wisdom! And Hearty Regards. 🙂

      1. Hello, Rajiv! Good posts! Your article on Religion, vide The Road tPerdition in short, impressed me. Kudos. As You will see, have Reblogged it.
