Black Ice

Festival of Angels York ©Carl Milner MilnersBlog

The Festival of Angels was so stunning I’ve had to split it into two separate blogs, this one is all Black & White photography of just the Ice Sculptures. There’s something quite beautiful and ethereal about doing a subject in just B/W, a medium I started using over 25 years ago in the ‘Good Ol’ Days’ of film and bromide when I was studying Graphic Design at Art College in Leeds, since then I’ve only used B/W a few time, the last was with an Ilford film using my Ricoh KR10 Super (which I’ve still got) when my little girl was a toddler running around the house causing mischief (which she still is today)…one of the photo’s is still my favourite shots of her.

In the New Year I’m going dig out my Ricoh and get back to my first roots of photography with film, patience and just a single shot.

This was my ‘first’ post totally using just the new iPad WordPress app
