    I enjoyed your article about BW photography. I have a good friend in Tacloban,Philippines who does a spectacular job of monochrome street photography. Go to http://afternoonwalks.wordpress.com/ to see his blog and examples of his work.

    I am a retired photographer having been in the portrait studio and wedding photography business for nearly 40 years. I envy the work that my friend, Orlando Uy does on the streets of Tacloban.
