LOST IN TRANSLATION – BLACK & WHITE VS. COLOR

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: AFTER AND BEFORE Y2-01

From Paula:

I almost let March go by without Black & White Sunday, and with a shorter weekend I only managed to post it today. Here’s a challenge which invites you to post the same image in colour and black and white. I call it “After and Before” and it is a recurrent event, the first one this year.


Philodendron – After

I’m glad you remembered. I so very much look forward to your challenges. They make me think … and I don’t think nearly as much as I ought.

  1. Black and white.., I love black and white. Early on, I only shot B&W because I was developing and printing all of my own stuff and felt I had more control over my work. I still enjoy watching movies shot in black and white, there’s something so era-specific about them. I also believe that the subtle lighting tones of black to white mean so much more in the final product without the help of color contrasts.., so call me old-fashioned. So many photos seem to work far better too. Ironically, as a kid, I believed that life before the 1950s was all in black and white.., for real. “Real life” Color started in the 50s continuing to this day. Don’t try and change my mind either, I know it’s the truth. Other things seem to work better in B&W, as well.., just look at you and Garry?

    1. I like black & white for some stuff, color for others. I think most landscapes look better in color, but many street scenes and anything in a city looks better in black & white. Black & white is moodier than color, or can be. More stark and sometimes, mysterious.

  2. I have to disagree with you, Marilyn, you are among most thinking persons that I know, but I also like when you just feel and let the feelings lead you into your creations. This is beautiful!
