These subjects are in fact stunningly alive, in both color and, in the case of my pets, in personality.
Yet I’ve reduced them all to black and white.
I suppose there could be any number of reasons for this.
Maybe as I’m returning to the routine of day-to-day life, I no longer have foreign intrigue to capture. Instead, I have the beautifully mundane before me.
Or perhaps my travel pictures are in color so that I can show friends and family, whereas my workaday subjects are more well known, so I can experiment?
Perchance a psychologist, philosopher, or neuroscientist could articulate my attitudes more clearly.
I’m not certain. If you have any thoughts, I would absolutely love to hear (read) them, so please do not be shy.
