"I dream in black & white."

black and white photography

Been feeling indifferent and somewhat uninspired last couple of days. As much as I love summer, at some point the heat and the stale air starts to interfere with my head. Just makes me want to lie low and sit myself in the shade of a nice tree.

Nineteen times out of twenty we decided not to take photos today. Finally managed to get our ass out from under that tree just before sunset. We also took on a challenge, leaving the camera settings on black and white. It's such a rush. I can feel the tingles now just looking at these. Kind of nostalgic.

It can be so fun taking photos in black and white - I love that feature on my camera. Maybe i should play with in a little more...

these prada shoes work perfectly with the school vibez. also, it's really amazing that you made it in a kind of typical way, i mean glasses, white socks, scenery, but you put it in a perfect way, really nostalgic, kind of sad and lonely. all these school vibez lately have been colorful and cheerful, but these photos totally get inside student's mind. because, you know, school sucks. people suck.
ps. i love you, guys. and i really appreciate all these comments you leave. it's like, whenever i post something i just can't wait to hear what you think.

Such a cute look. The socks are the cream to the cake. :)

I wish we had summer. But you are right in a way, winter is so boring that you have to kill it with work and producing much more stuff than in summer.

Love from Germany.

As always, love the black and white photos here. You look amazing in that vintage dress. and gosh, that clear Prada is beyond amazing. Love how you wore socks. You always perfect the minimalist effortless look. :)
