Mauritius Monochromes

5th to 9th October 2015. Mauritius.

The images that follow are monochrome conversions of colour images that appeared in the four previous posts covering my recent visit to Mauritius.  The images are in chronological order.  Click on a link below an image for the post containing the colour version of that image and other contextual and historical information.  If there is no link with the image, look for the last link in the preceding images.  Similarly, if there is no label the previous one applies.

    I enjoyed your conversions. I think it is the tonality of a B&W subject that, to me,creates more of a discussion.

      Thank you John. It’s interesting how different they can be to the colour versions. Sometimes with bright dramatic colours it seems almost a sacrilege to convert them but the effects can be dramatic in a completely different way.
