When you look at a b&w photograph, instead of your eyes focusing on certain colours, your eyes are attacted to the true textures and form of the subject. That's why I can't get enough of this colour combo. It's just too damn good. It's so classic and clean and I never get tired of it.
I'd love to give my bathroom a b&w makeover and I'm still wanting to paint a couple of walls black in my condo. Perhaps 2014 will be the year?
