By The Water's Side

While black and white images might sometimes appear cold or harsh, these minimalist photographs by David Fokos for me call to mind the perfect summer day. A still, dry heat and serene body of water laying nearby. The perfect bliss of a day filled with ease and laziness.

Pretty ! My boyfriend loves photogaphys and cause of that I am often forced to look at different kind of pics.
I don't tell this to him, but usually I really really like all th epics that are black-and-white or include water.

Oddly, for as much as I love saturated color, black & white photography has always been a first love of mine. Its inspired me so much, that if I were to ever get tattooed, I am doubtful I'd ever get color ones.

maybe right at the begining of summer as the water is so still, and you're jump in will be the first.

I like black and white photos, I think they can be very powerful and evokative if used in the right context, like here. Beautiful.

Perfect. I love how mirror-y that water looks in the bottom photo. Lovely.
