Lisbon Black and White Streets: 2016 Travelogue Pt 2

Part 1 of the travelogue covered colour and I described LIsbon as a colour city.  Despite this tag, I love the timeless quality of black and white images particularly for street photography and hence black and white will always feature heavily even if I'm shooting colour.  Constraints and limitations help build your creativity and perfect your skills but I love the flexibility that digital photography offers.  In film, you are restricted to shooting either black or white or colour until you switch out on the film. With digital, I can shoot in colour and decide later whether to keep it in colour or convert to black and white or have a version with both.  With today's camera we can even shoot in colour while previewing the shot in black and white on the back of the camera which can help with visualising the shot.  Below are a selection of my favourite black and white street photographs from Lisbon, Portugal.
