An Ode to Black & White

Seven years ago I started to learn photography with the moody yet brilliant celebrity that is black and white film. Since then, black and white has been my very favorite.

It is its own reality—a reality with foreign terms and elements that really does have so much to do with the reality we are used to, and in some ways and in certain lights, knows it even better than we do.

The absence of colors slows us down. It makes us look, makes us notice the moods and curves and textures we have, for our most of our lives, seen but never really seen.

    You are an artist in two respects: both with a camera and with the pen.

    my favorite (besides Natalie) is the bride looking outside the open door. Speaks in so many ways!
    If my kids ever get married…..(notice the lack of faith) would you kindly make a trip to CANADA to be their photographer? We’ll pay traveling expenses!!!
