The Colors of Black & White

I do love black and white photographs. Monochromes, to some, but to me, they express a range of colors beyond the ‘mono’.

Textures, lights and shadows come alive in a whole new way when presented in shades of black, white and all the greys in between. Makes me pause a minute or two more at each picture.

I used the iOS app Hipstamatic on my iPhone to take the pictures you see here. It’s a fabulous app that’s been around for years, and while I’m not impressed with the latest upgrade (seems to crash a lot now), it still offers an old-school way to choose your film type (each has a different look and feel), lens (like the films, offer different effects) and even your flash unit before you shoot. Still cool, methinks.
