Black and White: The essence and challenge


black and white photos
show the essence of subjects

Today I posted this poem in the facebook group “Match”:

The address of the group is:

Thanks you Judith Bartos, Karin Fors, Kay Duke and Laura Carlsson for making “Match” success!

  3. Great post and photo ,Jan. A super example how black and white contrasts in imagery focuses attention to the details of the subject (s). Challenging yes, because we experience the world thru color. Thanks again for sharing.
