The Rain Bird Bar in Lindos, Rhodes. The Black and White Photography Project

IMG_8642 (2)

When we were on our bloggers Mark Warner trip in mid-September, we took an afternoon trip our to the town of Lindos. A town of donkeys and small trade shops which were under a roof of vines. It was beautiful. But I think that the most stunningย place we visited was the Rain Bird Bar.

A short walk around some of the narrow, twisting paths, lead us to a picturesque bar where we sat and took in the bay and the beautiful scenery (as you can see from the photo below).ย My favourite photo though is ofย the doorway from the patio area into the main bar and restaurant. I am really happy at how it has come out as a photograph.

It was an interesting study in colour but I think that the black and whiteย gives it an edge. The white building contrasts well with the different shades of grey and, in particular, the stony ground with the mosaic.

In the photo below, I like how the chairs contrast with the rest of the picture.

    Beautiful! Great in black and white. There is something kind of intriguing about seeing anything through a doorway or archway and also something like an untold story in the empty table & glasses. Love it X #bwphotoproject

    I think the lighting must have been good over there ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the detail of the tiny pebbles and patterns especially.

      It definitely helped! That is one of the things I really loved about the doorway – the detail of the floor ๐Ÿ™‚

    The black and white did add more drama to your photos, especially on the 2nd photo. They look so sweet. โ™ฅ

    Love the archway, I love looking through doorways and getting a glimpse of what’s behind. The contrasts work well in black and white. And, I think the chairs look fantastic in black and white, beautiful view too ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks Sara, I know what you mean – I think there is a sense of wondering what is behind the archway in this picture. The view was stunning ๐Ÿ™‚

    They are both stunning photos. I love the arch on the first pic, so clean cut and strong, contrasted with all the little delicate detail within. And the second pic works really well with the chairs. It’s like you take the colour away and all of a sudden your eyes focus on all the lines.

      You are so right. I think the archway photo works so much better in b&w ๐Ÿ™‚
