The beauty of black and white… and negative space

When I mentioned that I hate colors I didn´t mean that colors are useless in any way. There are a lot of wonderful colored photos out there. But when I review my own pictures I almost never see colors in them. That´s how my mind works. Even when I press the shutter, the world through the lenses exists in contrasts. So that´s why my pictures are mostly black and white, but I also appreciate people like Torsten, who have the ability to create extraordinary pictures in colors, but I know I am not a part that group.

Besides the black-and-white-photography I really like negative space. So here are some older examples that I want to share with you. I chose the Coney Island picture as an answer to Torsten’s last post. Funfairs can also look great desaturated.
