Friday in Black and White – On the street

Before I decide to shoot in black and white I first ask myself:

What is the purpose of that photo?

What I want to show?

Are colors important in that photo?

If the answer to the last question is “no,” then surely I will take the black and white photograph.

Black and white photography is more expressive. Black and white photography is a state. Black and white photography often reflects thoughts and emotions.  Also, we must admit, the black-white photograph sometimes hides the small imperfections of a picture.

As a general rule, I shot in B&W, on the street. I can find great subjects there!

Our grandparents used this mechanism to sharpen the knives. I was surprised to see this young man with such an object in the back!
