Black and White - Nostalgia # 37

What do you prefer in a photo, colored or black and white? It doesn't matter right? It's how you take the photograph that counts or I should say the message that it conveys right? One advantage of the black and white old photograph is that they last forever. Unlike this colored photographs that we have now, as soon as they get wet, they're ruined. But no matter how we take the photographs, it is important to remember that it is a memory that we are trying to preserve for the future generation.
What is your opinion? What do you think is the importance of photographs?

the black and white looks more nostalgic but either will do for me. the memories captured are what important anyway.

I totally agree that it's the memory we are trying to preserve. Colored or course, is very nice but it's also true that b/w lasts longer.

I think sometimes - I prefer it black and white - sometimes not - depends on my mood, i guess? lol! Though at the end of the day - it's the memory that you get to treasure the most.

Joy said...

Dhadha said...

Both, it doesn't matter naman. Ang important is na capture mo mismo yung moment. :)

I do a lot of editing on my photos and I love both colored, black and white, sepia anything just as long as it captures such a great moment or a great place. Pictures are really wonderful because it helps preserve those cherished moments.

I love looking at pictures of my kids from when they were young. I love reminiscing all the great and not so great memories.

I think when you take photos in black and white, they look more like classic photos.

Personally, I prefer colored photos because you tend to capture the moment as is.
