Black and White

I've been majorly crushing on black and white photos lately. Don't get me wrong, I love lots of bright, bold colors in my life. (You can often find me wearing blue or red or sometimes even bright green pants.. I am all in on that trend, even if I have no business wearing skinny jeans.) But when it comes to photos sometimes nothing compares to having the image stripped down....

I find black and white photos to be timeless. and sort of... I don't know how to explain it... quiet, maybe? They seem more still. more contained. softer. I really have no idea why they makes me feel those things but they do. In the past I've kept a bit of a lid on my editing for these images, it just seemed like overkill. Now I'm thinking I'll just go for it... I mean, I take so many photos anyway, might as well have some in my new favorite. 

Especially since they are inspiring some different kinds of layouts...

Originally I thought about doing this layout all in kraft. Or all in black and white. Then some gold and sparkles weasled their way in. What do you think? Have black and white been rocking your world lately?
