Seeing the World in Black and White

Looking back through some of my photos from earlier this trip, I remembered just how much I enjoy shooting in black and white. Sure, most of the time photography looks better in color, especially when dealing with landscapes and scenery, but I find that black and white photography can be a very powerful tool to convey emotion. It eliminates the distracting colors and leaving you with the raw image. Here are a few black and white photos from India, some of which you have already seen in color.
