Shades of Mount Pleasant

Being partially color blind makes me wonder how others percieve color and what attracts them to an image. My particular flavor of color blindness is amoung the most common and results in differences between green and red appearing less obvious. I especially get tripped up with non-primary colors like purple or turquoise. I think I’m more sensitive to tonality than color as a result as often when I’m photographing with color in mind I revisit the photos and often prefer black and white versions. I especially like shooting with an optical rangefinder camera like the M10 as to my eye it presents the clearest view of the light and tones in a scene. Here are some of the photos from yesterday as black and whites.
