Embarcedero Center in San Francisco is full of interesting lines and geometric patterns. Every time I walk through the buildings I find something new to shoot, or a new way to shoot a familiar area.
This image was made with Hipstamatic using the excellent Olloclip fisheye lens.
This image of a driver napping in Rome was found in the Objective Scenes Flickr Pool. Thanks for your contribution, Grateful Ghoul!
I love the feel of this gorgeous black and white image by John Agoncillo. The long shadows make me think of walking to the bus after a long day at work.

Shot off of Market St on drizzly day. I had framed my shot and was simply waiting for these ladies to cross the road when this longboarder suddenly rolled into frame.
Spotted this steamy little construction scene on Market St and started taking photos when this super-serious-bicyclist pulled right into my shot. By the way he was staring at me, he looked unhappy, but he just sat there sort of posing for me as I kept snapping away. Even the construction guy was wondering what was going on.
If you are interested in a cool black and white photo app for iOS, then check out my newest Doc’s Guide video about Noir Photo. Here are some of my favorite iPhone portraits edited with Noir Photo and the Big Lens app.
Using minimal natural lighting, Coy Townson captured these wonderful black and white portraits on his Droid X and iPad. When I asked him about his favorite app for black and white photography, he said “I currently still use my Droid X with the Vignette App. This app is the reason I haven’t gone iphone even though I just got started on my ipad 3. I haven’t found anything comparable on the iOS platform that allows me to create and save my own styles then shoot with no post processing as I can with Vignette.”
We’ve been posting black and white mobile photos all, week. What do you guys think? Share your b&w shots in our OS flickr group.
Our pal Jeremy Brooks snapped this shot shortly after a dinner with Troy, Brandon, and myself. A few of us tried taking pictures through this window just off of 18th street and Mission, but Jeremy’s iPhone shot is one of my faves.
Found via the OS Flickr group.
I met Winthrop in Mint Plaza today during lunch. I asked about his glasses and he said told me that he couldn’t afford to get new frames, so he took his old lenses and crammed them into a cheap pair of frames from Walgreens. Sidenote: Winthrop totally reminds me of Steven Jesse Bernstein in this photo.
I’ll be posting my own black and white photos throughout the week and searching the Objective Scenes flickr group for b/w shots for the blog too.
