The B&W curse

B&W has always been a problem to me. For one, i have never considered it as fine art because of my background as a top gun developer. B&W Tv’s are long gone and so are B&W films. Life as designed and perceived has always enjoyed the beauty of colors. The rainbow exist because of water droplets reflecting the angle of light and water is a necessity to life.

However, sometimes in the absence of light, where colors are dull or those pesky yellow indoor ambience casts the whole picture to be yellowish…a B&W conversion is warranted.

A cafe in busan hosts a number of happy felines to keep you warm. The whole ambiance however Β is yellowish, since anyone could imagine the orangey colors of this cat, a B&W conversion makes sense here.
