The absence of color

In the absence of color, we see with our emotions. ~ Monika Payer

The absence of color

Without color, we start to see light and shadows. Shapes and textures.

We recognize leading lines and slow down to let our eyes gently follow them – let them meander in all the corners of the image.

There is also a timeless feel to monochromatic images. It slows us down and actually makes us reflect on time itself. On how fleeting time is and how we can never stop or slow it down.

The absence of color

So, it is up to us to mindfully enjoy the beautiful sights we see, before they become a memory.
