What are the applications of B &W photography?  Cite 5 other than these examples.  
B & W emphasizes massive limbs of acacia, as well 
as the tree's very old age. San Ildefonso, Ilocos Sur 
B & W enhances microscopic detail of a green 
alga and its symbionts. Home laboratory, QC. 
When color gives way to B & W, the result is 
better contrast, yet closer organization. Leo 
Carlo at home. QC. 
Monotony of subject is masked by B & W such 
as this native sow. San Vicente, Ilocos Sur
B & W hides age.  Where are the gray hairs
 and wrinkles? UST campus, Manila
Overexposed but looks fresh in the morning 
sun. Church ruin, Magsingal, Ilocos Sur   
B & W makes you look neat and trim. Manila 
Bulletin, Intramuros, Manila
 B & W enhances countryside view of this 
landscape. Mandaon, Masbate. 
Natural frame in black (branch) gives a 
telescopic as well as stage effect to this 
view.  Sta. Maria, Ilocos Sur 
B & W fits well for this broken bell to look 
like relic of the past. San Juan, La Union 
Colored clothes (red in this case) in B & W 
gives focus to the bird instead of the person.  
Avilon Zoo, San Mateo, Rizal   
Quaintness is enhanced by converting color
 photo to B & W.  Bantay, Ilocos Sur. 
Good morning! It's a world of B & W.  Camping, QC
