My first love in photography was black and white film.  I became obsessed with the darkroom and watching my images appear in my developer tray.  Of course, now we use digital cameras and convert to black and white, but, while it may be "easier," my love for it has not waned.  Black and white images reduce the "noise" of color, and allow the viewer to enjoy more purely the interplay of form, shape and light.  And, not insignificantly, since early photographs were only in black and white, it contributes, in my opinion, to the feeling of timelessness in the images.
