Black & White or Colour
I love colour photography. Once I had bought my first roll of colour film back in about 1971 I really didn’t want to use anything else. However, since joining in with Cee’s challenges I’ve found that black and white photography can be enjoyable too. Sometimes turning a photo to black and white can actually improve a bad photo. Of course with digital photography I can have the best of both worlds. I take photos in colour and change some to black and white to see how they look.
I still love colour. I prefer the colour version of this first photo for example. However, black and white or sepia tones can make a photo look more “old timey” or accentuate the lines of a building so I’m glad that I started to learn more about it.
Vanda, you have some marvelous photos on display this week. Thanks for playing along 😀

I’m pretty sure we took our first (we went on two) cruise on the Ovation. I think they have rebuilt it since then because it needed it.
Royal Caribbean have, or had a huge number of ships and did upgrade several of them in recent years including Explorer of the Seas which we sailed on soon after its upgrade. However, Ovation was a brand new ship in its first season of Pacific cruising in 2018 when we went. We actually followed the news about it being built before deciding to cruise on it. It is one of their largest ships. If we were ever to cruise again I think I would prefer one of the mid size ships like Explorer or even a smaller one like Radiance of the Seas which was very popular with Australian cruisers. Ovation was lovely and we could usually find a place to sit that wasn’t crowded but it was hard to find somewhere to get away from the dreadful pop music that they played in almost every public area. Ovation’s library didn’t have any tables so we could not use that for Scrabble as we did on Explorer. We spent a lot of time in the Windjammer buffet where we found a quiet spot to play board games. Luckily that was open nearly all the time.
