Is anything ever this black and white? The potential for it to be so is certainly there, but I don’t think people particularly care for black and whiteness. It’s so take it or leave it; doesn’t leave any room for give and take, or waffling, which is a favourite pastime. Heaven forbid that we should admit to knowing what we want, black or white!
Taken with a very ordinary camera on an extremely bright November day indoors. Sun was very low in the sky, which led to the wipe-out of the background. Film speed was 400 Asa. I developed the film and then the print, a hobby which I liked a great deal, but being shut in a darkroom for hours didn’t meld easily with family life. That fact was very clear cut.
