Black + White

I remember when I was younger every picture had to have a duplicate in black & white.  Are photographs better that way?  They give such a vintage feel- & ever since I bought my Nikon I have been keeping my pictures unedited, and un-black + white.

Taking old photos and changing the saturation has once again made me realize that I am still obsessed.  Now my new found idea: only black + white pictures all over my new room in Charleston.. with the exception of my priceless polaroids.
