    1. Yupp, Till teens I used to see world in black and white, either good or bad, I took time to understand that nothing is completely black or white, we all are shades of grey...

      Thanks for reading!

    1. Of course Bikram, life is also beautiful because nothing is divided into black ans white. There is something good in a bad and something bad in a good. so everything out there in the world is grey...making life spicier, unpredictable and thrilling!

      You always drop in with a point to add in my posts....I look forward to your comments!

      Thanks a lot for keep visiting my blog!

  13. This reminds me of a song, by Jamey Johnson, "In Color." It talks about the old timey photos that some of us may have, they're black and white, but in the song, he says, "You should have seen it in color." Oh how wonderful this is.. I love it!! Thank you for sharing!

  14. Very beautiful. Life is all in black and white.. sometimes, feels a little grey. Also agree with Bikram that the B&W ones stand out more than the others.

    1. I knew you would see the point, the truth is life is not black and white. It is not always possible to judge white from black, because its all mixed in shades of grey!
