When I was growing up, color movies and television were not quite mainstream yet. I watched initial episodes of “I Dream of Jeannie” and “Bewitched” in black & white, but being was oh-so-happy when we got a color television and the shows also were in color. After all, the world is in color.
So while I’m not really into black & white photography, or “monochrome” as it seems to be called today, I do occasionally find the really interesting picture that is basically black & white but has a little color thrown in to make things interesting.
Such as this picture:
I loved the overcast sky creating dull gray sand and water, contrasted by a slight pinkish tinge in the low sky from the sunset, the green fronds of the palm trees, and those beautiful rental sail boats.
