Paula’s Black & White Sunday invites us to post the same image both in black and white and in colour. AFTER and BEFORE -the topic and subject are entirely arbitrary. The only condition is that we post an image captured in colour and that we turn it monochrome in post processing.
I found the details in the black & white stood out more for me. I hadn’t noticed the whistle in his hand, or the stripes on her cap.
Naturally the color is more vivid, and there is a lot of color with the umbrellas, but the sky was cloudy and washed out, which lent itself to the black & white version.
