Having been brought up, at least in my earlier years, in the black-and-white era of photography, I have tended to be suspicious of the fascination that some have with that medium because color photography seemed like such a leap forward. And it was! Every now and then, however, although I can’t explain why, it seems to be just the ticket. Perhaps in portraiture it helps one to focus more on the subject — at least with portraits of the candid variety with distracting backgrounds — I’m not really sure.
Whatever the explanation, I prefer the converted version of the following grandkid pics to the original color versions. I think.
