Converted to Black-and-White
Another batch of found slides, 30+ years old, shot in color, but for this session, the images have been scanned and converted to black-and-white with Monochrome & Sepia tool, and tweaked for Auto Tone Correction, Contrast, Toen Curve, Brightness & Contrast, Hue & Saturation, Unsharp Mask and Noise Reduction, on the image editor Olympus Viewer 3 (OV3). Why? Well, for one, the originals are slightly faded and the colors are off and could be a lame sight to see these slides in its original disposition.

Black-and-white images, with its broad tonal ranges and deep rich blacks, relaxes you and sets your mind into the subconscious, deciphering the image is then simply visual impact and resonance. Light, form, and texture are more compelling in an image rather than the hues of the subject matter, and color serves more as a distraction than the means to an end.
