Featuring photography by Eric Jeschke
There are two obvious ways to interpret this sign, each of which has a very different meaning.
Question to YOU, Dear Reader:
Which one do you prefer: B&W or color. WHY?
Pana-Leica 45mm f2.8 @ f2.8
ha ha, good one, Eric.
Overall I liked the black & white one as the sign is much more attention grabbing due to higher contrast. The sign is merely part of the scene in the color version.
If I were want to feel nostalgic, I would pick the color version as moss on the pole, along with out of focus yet more distinct small palm tree in lower right, would remind me of tropical environment of Hawaii, thus, of Hilo.
That out of focus car does not look like a Corolla; else, I would liked the photo (any version) even more.
Correction: “I would liked the photo (any version) even more” should have been “I would have liked the photo (any version) even more”.
Definately B&W as the sign is more predominate in the scene in that version.
…and I would at least demand a Camry for my wife.
Hmm – more often than not I prefer b&w, but in this case for me the b&w is about the sign, whereas the color version is more a complete picture – also thanks to that wonderful red/green contrast.
