Richard's Monte Carlo - the Casino


It's been fascinating to see how each photographer sees this iconic building. Look back a few days at Nathalie's reflection - and also her lamps yesterday, Chuckeroon's buzz of life and today, Richard's glimpse through the palms - all different, all wonderful. Tomorrow Peter has something rather wonderful for us...

This is my favourite in the series. the use of shadow is great and the way so much is left to the imagination.

Palm fronds and architectural details are great in black and white. It focuses the eye on the shapes. I have some black and white photos in the hallway of our house of Mayan ruins in Mexico, some of which combine palm fronds with the ruins.

I don't know if I have told you my story from the Monte Carlo Casino and about how the croupiers (or whatever you call the men who work the roulette table) could not keep up with my betting and they had to go to the video tape to confirm that I was right and they made a mistake. If I haven't told it already, I will share it with you sometime. It takes some time, which I don't have enough of today. And as you know from my comment on your site about my lunch in Eze, some of my stories get a little long.

Sounds like a loooooooong and interesting lunch is due one day.

Well I must say that this is just spectacular in BW. I bow to Richard, the king of monotone. Bravo. It is just stunning Richard!

Tomorrow is Peter's turn........ may I predict a color shot??HA Can't wait. This whole week has been a wonderful treat Jilly, not that we don't love your photographs, but you are so right. Each of you has interpreted Monte Carlo/Menton in their own unique way.

Stunningly elegant black and white. Richard has captured the details and contrast with underlying swankiness perfectly.
