Why Black and White

When photographing black and white photos, textures, light and shadows take over the photo, and all of a sudden you see things you didn't see before. Composition elements and leading lines become more prominent in the picture. In this case, the direction of the tree branch and the fence leading to my son's body. We get to appreciate the tree texture even more. And,  more importantly, once the distraction of color is gone, it is about the story, the experience and the moment that is being photographed.
