Colorful photographs are eye-catching indeed but the black and white ones have more power in expression because of the sharpness and the seriousness in the two colors. They don’t leave doubts while grasping the meanings of them because there are fewer colors to distract the spectators.
Black and white are also symbolic of the good and the bad, darkness and light, sorrow and happiness. But in reality, it is difficult to demarcate these two colors. Humans are a combination of both black and white qualities because no man is completely bad nor good, no man is forever happy or sad. This is one of the main reasons why black and white pictures carry more meaning than the colored ones; there is always a lot to think deeply.
These black and white images will make you think deeper of the ordinary things you see every day.
