I love black & white structure. If I have one favorite thing to do in monochrome, anything structural from a cathedral to a scaffold is fair game. And, coincidentally, I’ve been reworking a lot of pictures from the past and many of them in black & white.
Briefly, on the subject of black & white versus black & white with bits of color: I eventually decided I like black & white to be at least monochrome. If not actually black and white, at least one tone and whitish. I’m not sure why I feel like that because I quite admire what other people do with color as focal points. Maybe it’s because I’m not all that good at it.
A little from here, a bit from there … roads!
Okay, looked it up again — 1957 was the original by The Rays, but other groups put out versions of it too — Herman’s Hermits and the Ronettes — both 1965. And the Nylons in 1981. I missed the 1981 version — I was in Israel by then.
It was a line dance. It may have been the very first of all line dances. I liked it because I could actually perform it and you couldn’t say that about me and other dances — of any kind. It had steps that anyone who could walk could probably master, except most of the guys I knew who barely managed walking without stumbling. It wasn’t drinking, either. They just had problems with managing their feet.
I seem to have found a lot of non-dancing partners through the decades.
These days, “silhouette” is a type of black & white photograph.
When I was a child, though, it meant a shadow show, fingers and a bright light behind a white sheet. Every kid learned to make a rabbit and maybe a horse. And of course, a silly talking face.
Sometimes, on a bad day as I try to have an intelligent conversation with one of the dogs, I feel like I’m one of those “pretend” talking shadows.
You know what I mean?
Standing in the corner wearing a tall pointy hat? Or was the tall pointy hat to prove you were a wizard? I have so much trouble remember these days.
