Sydney Harbour Bridge in B&W

 It's been awhile since I've joined in #WeekendinB&W so thought I'd swing by briefly. This was taken at sunset. Interestingly, the person is barely noticeable in the colour shot, but draws the eye in the B&W version because the colours of the sunset are missing and can't distract you.

Which made me wonder about how much we colour our vision? We see what we want to see, rather than what is necessarily there.

"We only see what we want to see; we only hear what we want to hear. Our belief system is just like a mirror that only shows us what we believe."

Linking also with #WeekendReflection as it's sort of a street scene


  1. And sometimes they tell lies to suit us.
    I have a picture of me in a boat riding under your bridge. Plenty of light for me that day.

  2. Beautiful evening image - plenty of lovely dark lines.

  3. Interesting shot ans your comments on it. It is true, converting a shot to BW mostly changes what se see and how. :)
    Thanks for sharing.
