People ask why black and white (B&W) photography or what's special about it. I answer...color is beautiful but distracting. We see more with BW. Look closely at this series of images taken in the American West, and you notice the subtle shading. BW also can set a different mood…think of the film noir era vs technicolor…B&W can be moody, sinister or just beautiful depending on your state of mind.
The West is more than the childrens' old game of "Cowboys and Indians" or the OK Correl...rather, it's the unbelievable National and State Parks; PowWows and the vibrant Native American cultures; and the diversity of wildlife.
Images from around the world. The bucket list describes places to go and things to do before a person "kicks the bucket." Hopefully, the images will stimulate a desire in you to see the wonderful world in which we live.
