People think of all colors except the absence of color. I have said that black has it all. White too. Their beauty is absolute. It is the perfect harmony. – Coco Chanel

FOCUS:  Color (White, Black, Grey)

White. Black. Day. Night. Yin. Yang. Light. Dark. And every shade in between.

It was a challenge to photograph the colors black and white without actually photographing in ‘black & white’.  My solution?  Photographing a clear bubble with a black and white backdrop.  Only the slight ring of prismatic colors on the bubble’s surface gives any clue that the picture above is actually in color and not black & white.  In reality, this photograph captures more than just the colors of black and white – it happens to capture every single color of the light spectrum.

…what a perfect conclusion to my week-long study of color.
