Can't resist a black and white version. Smile

Just a short trip out around the local back roads to warm up the engine before an oil change. Four Imperial pints of 30 weight and a pint of Marvel Mystery Oil. Smile

Great photos!

Funny story.

Back about 10 years ago when my daughter was young she asked me when the world became color and stopped being B&W!

She thought the world at one time had been only B&W.

Yeah I kind of subscribe to that impression too. I find it hard to recall my childhood in the 1950s in colour. It was a time of B&W TV and of course all movies shown on TV were black and white. Even the family photo albums were the same.

When I started taking pictures as a kid it didn't occur to me I could take colour pictures on my Kodak Brownie. Then I got into photography as an adult and although colour slides were easy I found an instinctive affinity for B&W.

However when I got into the history of photography I was surprised to find colour photography didn't begin in the 1930s with Kodachrome. There was a colour process as early as 1907; Autochrome cast a new light on photography and the results were beautiful...

I still love B&W though. Smile
