After my raptures about all things black and white on Monday I stumbled across the work of photograher Josef Hoflehner. They are absolutely stunning and so striking. I really love his collection of photographs of India and South America, but there is so much incredible work on his website. Trust me take some time to have a look through and get inspired. It has made my feet very itchy for travel now. (The Taj Mahal image below has seriously increased my desire to go to India!)

What I notice from these photographs (and from hours spent in the dark room and photographing puddles for my Art A-level) is how important contrast is in black and white photography. You need to have dark rich blacks and then also bright whites. Will have to try and remember this when I am looking out for things to photograph for my daily instagram challenge.
