I began taking a black and white photography class at the North Seattle College continuing education program last week. One week in and it’s just been a bunch of people who are seemingly good photographers show me their photographs and saying “try looking at things this way!” But we had an assignment the first week and that assignment was to take some photographs in black and white and then share them. These are my first week photographs.
Earlier this evening the state of Washington permanently closed the Alaskan Way Viaduct, a scar on the Seattle waterfront since the early 1950s. Before it closed I went down there to take some pictures. I felt that black and white really captured the lack of color that the waterfront has with this behemoth towering over it.
