When photography was born, only monochrome pictures were possible. When it grew up, full colour blossomed.
There's something satisfying about working a subject for black and white. Eliminating the distraction of colour sometimes reveals form, line and texture more clearly. Certain vegetables are worth studying in monochrome. These were on the pavement stalls outside my local greengrocer's shop, smoothly lit by an overcast sky. I had wanted to photograph aubergines but they were hiding indoors, reflecting several overhead strip lights in a less than pleasing manner.
