Black & White.... the new color?

Recently I have found that I love black and white photographs..... the emotions that can be felt while looking at them can be wonderful.....

What is it about a black and white photo that evokes such emotions?

Here are some that I found on photobucket.....

Happy Hump Day!!!!

Those Photo's are really cool..
My Brother had a thing for Black & White...
Two of his favorite colors...
And he would decorate with those colors as well.
He used to take Black & Whites and frame them...
Always said it was peaceful looking....

Hope your day is going well...

I think the actresses from the 40's and 50's looked so lovely because of black and white photography. There is just something about it.

Minxie, I personally think that the black and white photography actually hightens the overall emotion of the picture. Like the girl on the swing; feels like you are looking into the sun (not a good thing to do) taking the picture. The sun messes with your vision. The second pic of the girl sitting in the hallway, b&w makes the feeling/emotion of lonliness even deeper.

I love to process photos in B&W. Often I wonder if I'm doing too many shots that way in a session but there is just something about that medium that quiets your spirit down enough to feel the emotion. I love playing with color too, but there's nothing quite like a great B&W shot. Great images, Minxie!
