The Beauty of Black and White



There is something truly special about black and white photography. It seems to have a depth and evocative quality ย that is not found in color photos; at least in my opinion.

Here’s a pic of our beloved Mr. Cheddar, looking oh so handsome, as usual. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Sure handsome that Mr. Cheddar.

  2. I wish I had the ability to focus like that!

  3. Squishy little morsel of catflesh you have there.

  4. Gorgeous shot!! I agree with your thoughts on black and white photography. It creates a timeless feel as well.

    Glad I found this today as I’m emerging from my blog-free cocoon… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Meow-Meow has been reaching out with new forms of affection recently. She particularly loves to perch on my desk when I’m surfing the web, completely blocking my view of the monitor… ๐Ÿ˜›

  5. Such an intent gaze! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Wonderful picture – I’ve been experimenting with black and white lately and it does have a quality that isn’t found in color. Nicely done!

  7. Mr. Chedder is looking down at your last post wanting a bite. ๐Ÿ˜‰ B & W are some of my favorite ways to shoot my grandson. HUGS

  8. I think with the absence of color, you look at the photo with a different eye. You see the essence of the personality, the nature of possibilities. Yes, black and white is indeed a classy quality of photography.

  9. I agree. I think that black and white photos let one see the details more because the color isn’t there to distract the eye.

  10. I agree. I think that black and white photos let one see the details more because the color isn’t there to distract the eye.

  11. Black and white has a timeless quality. What a lovely chap he is!

    Hi Sandy C, I was thinking that too Sandy! Probably pondering mice, eh?

    Hi Cat, Oh he’s a morsel alright, a BIGGGGG morsel of fun!

    Hi Aine, The Big Guy and Ms. Mitz send their best headbonks over to Meooow Meooow. I hope more pics are showing up at the Evan’s blogs soon. Gorgeous kitty!

    Hi Ruinwen, I do agree!

    Hi Sue, Thanks Sue. It is magical, isn’t it?

    Hi Tammy, I’ll look forward to seeing some of your b and w pics Tammy. Mmmm…the kids love cheese!

    Hi Brenda, That is so true Brenda. Thanks for sharing this insight.

    Hi Beth, And the details seem to stand out, don’t they? Just like in a b and w movie. Love those too.

    Hi Selma, Mr. C says thanks Sel!

    Hugs and Headbonks and thanks for stopping in, G

  13. Hi G,

    I agree………there is something special about b&w photos. You get to exercize more imagination, and the smallest details do seem to come out more, almost as if color were somewhat distracting!

    Of course, Mr C is handsome in any color! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. i love black and white, always have something just so much more magical about it……

  15. I’ve just begun to experiment with monochrome photos and think Mr. C looks wonderful here.
    Hugs and blessings,
