Black and White (even more)

There is something

Special about black and white. Strips away the “confusion” created with color. Back in the 50s, I overheard a conversation in a photographic equipment shop where a customer asked the store owner: “What about black and white photography, is it dead now?” He replied, “Madam, Black and White photography IS photography.”

Upon reflection, I think that was an extreme statement. But he had a point too. B and W takes out the sometimes “distraction” caused by color.
