Colour Blind



A few days ago I posted the black and white version of this image on Instagram.

But I keep on seeing the colour version in my folder and have decided you should get to see it too.

I took this photo in 2014 and published a black and white version back then (this link).

    • Hi Andy, I have been leaning to the colour version too. When I went back to the original file to rework the conversion to post it on Instagram I was really taken with the colour – but my purpose on IG was black and white. It is interesting how one’s view of a photo changes over time, and more can be made of it years later than was seen the first time. Which probably means I am not putting enough into the seeing part in the first place, but it is still rewarding to find something new in the same image.


      • I think very often we come back to an image and see it differently. Someone once talked about images ‘maturing’ over time. They are right, and also our processing skills improve so that we have the capability to exploit the possibilities posed by the original file.

      • I agree, though in my case perhaps it is me that is maturing, rather than the image. I don’t do much processing on scanned negatives, but it is an option that I sometimes pursue.
