It’s A Black & White World
If a picture says a thousand words, black & white photography speaks volumes.
The more we grow up the more we learn that things aren’t always black and white…except of course, in photography. In the real world there are areas that are grey, messy, undefined, chaotic and complicated. Yet in the world of photography there is just something so moving and spectacularly fascinating about black and white photos.
A while back I was issued a B&W photography challenge via social media. Challenge accepted. This gave me an excuse to dig up some of my favorites and ponder exactly what it is I love about this type of photography and why so many are drawn to it.
As a continuation of that photography challenge and extension of my love for all things black & white, welcome to Black & Wednesdays. Once a week a photo will be let loose on the photography blog world, perhaps with a little snippet of the back story on how the photograph was taken or the tale of the subject and why I found it interesting. Photos certainly tell a story. Sometimes it can be a lot of fun to hear the stories behind the story. Let the bloggity blog blog begin!
