This is a brief gallery of different features from the USS Constitution—“Old Ironsides”—in Boston, Massachusetts. The photos were originally taken c1973 using a Canon SLR and Kodachrome 64 transparency film. The images were recently scanned to digital images and converted to black and white. Monochrome images emphasize more detail than their full-color counterparts. I assume this is because when we look at a full-color image, our eyes (and brain) “focus” on the colors and appreciate the image more as a whole multicolored vision. Black and white images allow the eye to quickly distinguish lines and patterns that actually define the the subject of the image.
