On my way to work this morning, I stopped to capture the misty view. I often associate mist with magic. It has something surreal.
About the BW choice : My friend asked me once why did I like BW photos so much as he prefers colourfull pics. I can't really explain why. Maybe the mood, the attention on details is not distracted from colours, the game of light can be more intense, the idea that less is more sometimes.
It is probably the whole thing and a bit more.
