ICM photography on a gorgeous morning

Developing my photographs in black and white helps to free my mind, and the viewers’, from the original scene, or from what an equivalent scene is supposed to look like
I like the freedom from reality that black and white gives me. In color, there is often the expectation that a scene has some resemblance with reality, and when it does not, it looks strange. In black and white, by contrast, there is no such expectation because there is no real world in black and white to use as a reference.
