I love colour. It is expressive, exciting and interesting on so many levels. I have only recently discovered how much I love it and have been doing most of my edits in colour. But sometimes, especially with my personal work I just see the photographs in monochrome. I don't know why- it is difficult to explain. That evening the sky had this spectacular shade of pink and purple, yet once I uploaded these images onto my computer I immediately turned all of them black and white. Maybe because they had felt very nostalgic to me; I remember how happy I was that evening gardening (or truthfully just documenting their hard work) with my brothers and my mum whom we only see every few months. Perhaps I wanted to hold onto that nostalgia. I occasionally favour the simplicity that black and white photographs can provide.
