Are they lighting a cannabis cigarette in that last photo? Or just a fat hand rolled one?

What does Levi's mean in Polish?
I like the black and white treatment. Usually I find black and white pretentious, but these actually take advantage of monotone processing.

I have mixed feelings about making "street shots" monochrome - I hate to do something just because it is traditional - but it worked in your case. I'm guessing that scenes like the second one didn't have much meaningful color in them in the place.

You presume I processed them out of traditionalism.... but you're wrong. I think these shots work better in B&W, whereas other streetshots are better in colour.
However, I think there is often too much distraction in colour in streets, and therefore the light-play in B&W works much better most times! It's easier to accentuate parts, for instance.... But it might be a matter of taste, of course...

You can see in my flickr album "Digital Streetshots" that I really mix the use of B&W and colour...

The huge bubbles in the black and white definitely stand out more than they do in the colour. You're emphasizing a fairly subtle tonal contrast over a relatively un-important and flat colour contrast.

I see photography instructor Norm has dropped by this afternoon! Now that I look closer at both, your comment makes more sense to me. Again I learned something here at PF! I keep spending hours a day here and I may be a photographic genius by the time I am 114!
