In black & white

It's no secret--I love colours.  I even have an entire post dedicated to it! (Read more about it here.)  But there are times when some photographs just turn out more beautifully in black & white.  Maybe it's the drama or the nostalgia it gives the scene or the subject.  And how you end up having an entirely different story.

So I scoured through my library of photos and found some snaps that turned out better in black & white.  Here are some of them.
*Most of the photos were taken using my Nikon D60. But there are some that were taken using just my phone camera or now-kaput point-and-shoot camera.
The city of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Gloomy sky at Casita Ysabel, Batangas.  (Photo taken using my old Sony Ericsson X10 Xperia.)
Inside a train in Singapore.
No pain, no gain.
All that glitters.  The ABS-CBN Trade Event.

Wedding decors.
After the rain.
En route to Turtle Island in Bali, Indonesia.
Our neighborhood-friendly dog in Cagbalite Island.
Amazing Thailand.  (Photo taken using my old Canon Ixus point-and-shoot cam.)
