Black and White

I have sometime been asked way I like black and white photography so much. Well the short answer would be that it is more simple only two color right? No for me it is sometime the only way to make images, there are many images that work better in color, but for some they only work in black and white. I like to explain with a simple imaginary image of a house in a green field with mountains in the distance. The house has a roof painted in bright red color and the mountains has a little bit of a snow on top. Well in color our focus will be draw to the red roof and then possibly they wander to the mountains but we could possibly miss the interesting old tree or the rolling hills with deep shadows. In Black and White such an image would come alive and all the elements would work better together making the hole image. So this is my answer to the question Im often asked and a part from this I relay like the many colors we can get inside one  black and white image.
