I wear Black

Well, you wonder why I always dress in black, Why you never see bright colors on my back, And why does my appearance seem to have a somber tone. Well, there's a reason for the things that I have on. I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down, Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of town, I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime, But is there because he's a victim of the times. I wear the black for those who never read, Or listened to the words that Jesus said, About the road to happiness through love and charity, Why, you'd think He's talking straight to you and me. Well, we're doin' mighty fine, I do suppose, In our streak of lightnin' cars and fancy clothes, But just so we're reminded of the ones who are held back,

A nice feeling of force and movement. A good shot. You are quoting Johnny Cash if I'm not mistaken? Please let me know. Powerful words, huh?

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I... I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference.

The B&W works well in this nicely presented waterfall photo.

The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

Frozen the action nicely and the bw works great for the white water in this, not so much for the rocks and calm water/darker areas which lack the variety of tones to really have punch in bw. The words really invite meditation as the connection between the words and the image is not so obvious, have to go deeper. Neat effect. Always good when a shot makes me think.

It is not "The powerful attack the weak." it is "The fearful attack what they fear."
