India in Black and White
India is so full of color – so full of vibrant, bright, ridiculous color – that I rarely took any photos in black and white. From the resplendent saris of the women to the vivid festivals, everywhere I turned I was assaulted with color. With some distance between me and my time in India, and with the magic of Lightroom, I converted some photos to B&W.
Some of these images I think are more effective in black and white. Some have an ageless quality as many things in India haven’t changed much over the years.
