Aby-a-Day -September 5: Shades of grey (Hipstamatic Monday)

Sometimes, it just seems so restful to take advantage of Hipstamatic’s black and white films.

Black and white photos bring back different memories for me, depending on my mood.

Sometimes, they remind me of being on the school paper in high school, and the hours I spent in the darkroom formatting, halftoning and printing all the photos we used in each issue.

Other times, they remind me of being exiled to the back bedroom and the black and white TV when I wanted to watch something on television that my parents didn’t want to watch (the horror!).

Sometimes it’s nice to remember that just because we live in a world with millions of colours, it doesn’t mean that we have to look at all of them all the time.
