Black and White Chelsea

A walk around the neighborhood with new phone photo filters.

Lots of Citibike users now the weather has improved.

Lots of children going for field trips...

Fewer people heading to church.

Lots and lots of workmen doing important things.

Lots and lots of construction - here 25th Street.

The High Line has become a major tourist attraction - to the point of almost too much. Like walking in Times Square - but much prettier. The shadows on the wall above are of trees. This shot taken from below.

More construction

and the venerable Starrett-Lehigh Building.

August Sander show at Silverstein on 24th Street. A most astounding photographer - who always worked in black and white.


  1. I really like your new filter.
    I like black and white because when you take the color out you see the shapes.
    After your winter I can understand why many people want to walk The High Line.

    cheers, parsnip

  2. Very inspiring. Black and white done well.

  3. I love black and white photography Elizabeth - I think it concentrates the mind on the subject beautifully.

  4. Elizabeth, your black and white New York City views are very good. I've enjoyed seeing some familiar places in a different way.

    Isn't it great to be able to really enjoy being outdoors again...particularly when we can leave the umbrellas at home!


  5. A really fab set of pictures Elizabeth. I almost feel like I'm there with you. x

  6. These photos are so wonderful!! Isn't it amazing how a little editing can make even the most everyday photos look like they belong in a magazine?!!? Fantastic captures!! I especially love the one with the shadows of the trees and how you explained the photo. Have a beautiful day!! Hasn't the weather been just incredible?!!!!? xo

  8. Like the way you captured the tree shadows Elizabeth.

  9. Elizabeth, you are such an extraordinary photographer! Black and white is a wonderful medium, and you know how and when to use the filter to create a truly great image.


I look forward to hearing from you!
