I know there's already a (long) thread where one can post their favorite pictures of Elvis. With this thread I like to focus only on the black and white pictures. Sometimes a black and white picture is more beautifull than the color ones. It's like mono vs stereo (IMG:style_emoticons/default/whistling.gif)

Please post your favorite b&w pictures here and if possible please put some info to go with it. Also I would like to ask everyone to not post more than 3 pictures at a time for better viewing pleasure of this tread.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'll kick this off with the following pictures:

This 1956 picture captures Elvis in a serious and 'thinking' mood. Reminds me a bit of the '72 On Tour limosine footage !

A great picture of Elvis and Priscilla at their wedding reception on May 1st 1967.


Attached File  EagleBlack_White.jpg ( 39.46K ) Number of downloads: 11


One of my alltime favorite pictures from Aloha From Hawaii. Just beautifull.

When the photographer knows what he/she's doing and b&w pictures are taken at the exact right moment (pose/angle etc.), there's something magical and/or mysterious about them that's missing on majority of colour pictures. ..... I especially like the ones that has some "shadow play" going on... by that I mean kind of like "artsy-fartsy" pictures. I think these two shots illustrate my point perfectly... quite beautiful snaps.

Yes ! That's exactly what I meant Jouni (IMG:style_emoticons/default/notworthy.gif) Beautifull pictures by the way, both are new to my eyes and as a 70's fan I especially like the '73 pic (IMG:style_emoticons/default/whistling.gif)

In the first volumes of the Tunzi books almost all pics are B/W...
Stunning press pics are among them..

Also the Wertheimer collection is outstanding.

But my favorite B/W graced my favorite lp cover..
The contrast is great!!

Thank you Johan, that's indeed a beautifull picture from 1970. Do you happen to have the original picture of this one ?

Thanks for that cool 50s picture, Dennis. I think you're right about the date too... it was most likely taken during one of the Florida shows on August 10-11, 1956.

Here's a couple more cool "shadow" pictures... the quality is not the best but I'm sure everyone gets the idea. ..... I bet these would look brilliant straight from the negatives, framed on the wall... especially the first one!

Here's also a real classic... I thought I had the original picture but nope... remembered wrong. So if anyone has, feel free to post it.
