Well, it's about time that I showed you another five photos that I think stand out from the crowd.This group differs from the previous ones just a little, as it has a black and white photo included. Black and white tends to get a little overlooked these days but can be very striking when done well.One other thing about these photos is that they don't really need any further explanation, they speak for themselves.
