B & W vs Color
"Another advantage of black and white is that it announces itself as an abstraction. The photograph is not about what the landscape looks like but rather about what it may mean. To get this level of analysis the photograph needs to be sent to the intellectual centre of the brain because that is where abstract things get processed. A colour picture can be churned within the visual lobes where analysis usually finishes with identification of subject matter and the prompt "next picture please"."
I like that. Because a B&W subject is not immediately "identified" the viewer is forced to look with different eyes. For me, it is a more emotional experience.
I just think that things should work the way I expect them to.
