black and white

Matthias has purty eyes...

I like black and white images...
there's black, there's white, then there's the grey in between...

"I dream in techni-colour but i see in black and white"

It hit me the other day as i was talking to a friend - I like black and white images. I like them because without the distraction of colour, we can see things for what they really are. It's like a stripped down version of reality - there's absolute black, absolute white and then there's this vast grey that connects them.

Grey areas.. the indecisive area in between. The unity of extremes, the best of both worlds, the essential connection between the two absolute contrasts. And while most see the black and whites, overlooking the grey.. it is no less essential to the composition as a whole. Without the grey to fill in the blanks in our lives, things wouldn't make much sense. Without the transistions in between, we'd never draw the link from one end to the other. After all, few things in life are ever black or white so why should we see that way?

Yeah, grey is good.

sorta.
