Looking, Feeling and Seeing in Dunkirk

One of the many joys of photography is to carefully look and suddenly feel and see beneath the surface.

While walking in Dunkirk, stopped and looked across the street to find this colorful grouping.

   Dunkirk, Indiana.

After some 70 years of doing photography, what I really felt and saw was not the color but rather, the shape and form of the buildings.  This visualization needed to be presented in the strongest way possible.

Removing the color produces a result that enables the shape and form to stand strong.  Looking is only the beginning, feeling and seeing follow.
