Two shots from the refectory in St. Mary 's Hall, the Jesuit residence. Took these about twenty or thirty minutes after the one above. The morning started out gray and then blossomed into cold perfection. There are baskets of apples, plums, oranges, and bananas on top of one of the serving tables. Nice still-life subjects.
The Jesuit chapel in St. Mary's Hall. This will be a frequent subject over the coming months.
I've gone on record as saying that if I were forced to limit myself to either color or black and white photography for one year black and white would be the easy choice. It is a tremendous medium. Fuji makes a camera that only shoots black and white. The problem is the price: $7500.00, lens not included. The first black and white is the same as the one of the chapel above converted using the Capture One photo processing program.
The entrance to St. Mary's Hall
Photography is the study of the relationship of light and shadow, brilliance and darkness. I began shooting glass as the primary subject when I was in Slovenia. There aren't many outdoor cafes in Boston, especially in the winter, but this was an attractive subject in the rectory. Some cutlery and plates.
