All photos in this post are original photographs I shot on my Canon 600D/T3i during 2013. Lenses used were the Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6, Canon EF 50mm f/1.4, and Canon EF-S 55-250mm f/4.0-5.6 lenses.  Photos are shot in RAW format and then edited in Lightroom.  I take a true-to-moment approach and only make adjustments to remove lens spots and to tweak color for the black and white conversion, sharpness, exposure, clarity, whites and blacks.   In addition to posting these 65 black and white photos, I’ll also be posting my 65 favorite color shots from 2013.

It was a wonderful year full of incredible travel, growth, amazing food, and spectacular people and cultures.

These pictures are stunning. Something about the classic black and white makes it all look so nostalgic and retro. Some of these look like they could be in a museum or gallery.
