This Chinese New Year, I had with me something I never had before. A camera. My trusty camera. It’s a great companion and it pushes me to pay attention to the little wondrous things around me that I’d never noticed before. In doing so, I was able to capture moments that we would have probably overlooked and forgotten about by the following year.
I had great fun with the candid shots, though my awesome shutter sound gave me away for the stealthier ones. And I figured some of them looked best in black and white, because those still moments didn’t need colour to live, for they had a life of their own.
Then of course, Ted Grant’s amazing quote stands as true as can be:
“When you photograph people in colour, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls.”
