Two photos of not much in particular, but with explanations.

Explanation: Girls and Trucks.

This is another part of Main Street, which is partly explained in the first paragraph of Main Art.

I tried this last one in black and white, and it looked sort of stark and strong and lovely, but then I turned the colour back on and liked it better. I guess I’ll never be a Real Photographer.

The main thing that young-uns (into which group you may not fall) don't understand about "real" photography (the kind with silver negatives and paper), is that b/w and colour photography differ by more than just colour.

Ansel Adams was most famous for taking contrast control to its logical/physical limits in b/w. But garden variety b/w snapshots will exhibit far greater dynamic range than colour (slide stock being narrower than print stock).

Even on TV old b/w movies have noticeable depth that flat colour films can't match. Not to mention tape stuff. "The Third Man" is a great example.
