Woods by the Beach

Woods by the Beach

“Monochrome has stronger element of abstraction or symbolism. There is an element of taking you to another place. Black-and-white has that physical effect on me.” (ASX.TV: Daido Moriyama — “Reaching Out the Senses” 2012)

I have tried converting to black-and-white some of my color photographs (one photo is the above Woods by the Beach) from my archives to test the effect on me. And I found out that it is true — there seems to be a great difference.
