This is my contribution to Black and White Wednesday, week #49. This popular weekly culinary photo event was started by Susan of The Well Seasoned Cook and is still going strong. As Susan pointed out when she announced the event, black and white photos simply do not get enough respect. Well, when you see the array of creative photographs presented each week, you will see that while color photos are stunning and usually favored, especially when it comes to culinary imagery, monochromatic images can be just as sensual, striking and artistic, if not more so, depending on the photographer behind the lens. As Susan notes, "Black and white can dramatically impact your images and train your eye to view highlights, shadows, and midtones in a whole new light.."
