Friday Fotos: Variations on a (mono)chromatic Theme

By Bbenzon @bbenzon
Once again: What does it mean to take a photo? This photograph, believe it or not, is a color photo. I took it in a snowstorm, and that pretty much eliminated color. The color of the river, of course, comes in some measure from reflecting the sky. On a bright day with a blue sky, the water is blue. On a snow-stormy day, there is no blue to reflect, and so the water appears grayish. The most obvious hint of color is in the dingy atop the cabin of the boat.

The color play is not so blatant and flamboyant as in these moonshots, but it's certainly there. IGP2322 EqSub G1 IGP2322 EqSub G2
Am I to think of and consider these images individually, or as a group? IGP2322 EqSub G3 IGP2322 EqSub G4 IGP2322 EqSub G5 This one moves a bit from the rather restrained territory of the others: IGP2322v3 Gd Why?
