Because it is my favourite. I love black and white photography and retro style :) here are some of my favourite photos. You can paste your favourite black and white photos and let me know if you like photography :)
Color has its benefitd, and I often do photo shoots in color, but nothing captures an instant quite like a black & white photo. No distraction from all the color, just the image itself. You get to enjoy it in such a different way. It speaks more than color.
