I n keeping with tradition, each year during the India photo tour, I post a selection of black and white images. In the process of shooting these images I didn’t actually set my camera to black and white, but rather I shot them in color and then afterwards, looked for ones that seemed like they might be candidates for display in black and white. The following are 21 images that I hope you’ll enjoy.

    OMG, Karl, these are stunning! I’m such a B&W slut. And, of course, I especially appreciated the outdoor barbershop shot. Can’t wait for next November.

    Dang! You never cease to impress me (and many others as it is obvious). Great shots. Can’t decide which of this series is my favorite –maybe the barber shop one. Un abrazo!

    Did you shoot jpg or raw for post processing to bw?

    Thanks for the question Ignacio. The answer is that I shoot only jpeg. Cheers, Karl

    Thank you for the answer Karl, I’ve been shooting JPG only for some time and have no regrets about abandoning raw! I would love to join one of your photo tours if you happen to come to Beijng, where I live at the moment.

    Congratulations for your amazing pictures!
