“When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!”
~ Ted Grant
I’m drawn to the beauty there is in the back of flowers. It’s subtler and more interesting than the front which–beautiful as it is–can be loud and ostentatious. Lately, I’ve been experimenting with black and white and finding yet another layer of simple beauty.
It’s like that with human relationships too: when we take the time, and make the effort, to look beyond the masks we’re all prone to wear when we go out into the world we find authenticity, connection, and a gateway to the true richness of an individual’s character.
We–I–need to do more of that.
