I am a black and white afficianado from my first days of photography. Color is such a different animal. It attracts me like a bee to the bloom and in the digital realm, under the right circumstances can really succeed in a subtle way. I am particularly drawn to the "non-color" colors- hues that don't I immediately associate with. Metals and fungi
or oxidation attract me most. The challenge of rendering it to my mind's eye and having others see it as I did, attracts me too.
