Hollywood in Black and White

I revisited some of the images I shot in 2010 on Hollywood Boulevard in search of a new challenge. In the past I only posted snapshots from my travels, and looking at these old images I saw a lot of potential in creating new edits for them. Hollywood is a tourist trap that's been photographed a million times, so I thought it would be fun to play with that vintage stereotype that's come to define the location. 

I edited all of my shots in varying shades of black and white, even masking textures on some to replicate vintage photographs. I wanted to play up the grittiness and textures, and treated the images like they were a backdrop to an old film noir. It was a completely different way of looking at the images that I originally shared here.
