Black and white photos tend to lend themselves nicely to various textures and contrasts - something often overlooked when the focus is on a variety of color which appeals greatly to the senses. Looking upward to a beautiful blue sky, highlighted by a few puffy clouds, I tried to imagine the lack of color and it was difficult, but upon seeing the black and white image, I knew that my attraction to the scene was much deeper than the color.

With time, most of us do get beyond the superficial to dig through the initial layer of attraction - whether it be the proverbial book and its cover, relationships, or even peeling back the layers of our self. Reflection is a process that often reminds us of those various structures and allows us a chance to step away from the usual view of the world and see it from another perspective. Like yoga or meditation, the world seems a bit more serene with time for reflection. 6th St N & Central Ave, Naples, FL
