For the love of black & white

I confess that I haven’t shot a roll of B&W for 20 years but looking through my old negatives, it’s definitely something I need to try again soon. I was never much of a tri-x fan but loved shooting XP… “Ilford” sounded so exotic and British, I suppose, and the results were more predictable for me.

I have acquaintances much more clever than I who could wax eloquent about the allure of photos shot in B&W, particularly for street photography. There’s something intimate and timeless about a monochromatic photo… As if colour might somehow obscure the subject and the moment. – cPaul
