Welcome to this edition of Il Volo — Off Stage…but not really.
Today, I’m feeling a little…abstract…maybe. That isn’t the exact word that I’m looking for, but I think that for the concept of this article, that’s OK.
I’ve been inspired by the Black and White Facebook Challenge that is currently going on. For those of you that use Facebook, you might have seen it. The one where someone posts one black and white photo that depicts their life, no people, no explanation included, for 7 days? It’s been so interesting to see my friends’ and acquaintances’ lives through the medium of black and white photos.
Black and white pictures speak to me. Of course, I love to see a beautiful picture in full color. It speaks of life in full bloom, you know? Vibrant and present; in the moment. Like the way we’re supposed to (and I’m trying to learn to) live life. But Black and Whites speak of a fullness of life in a different way. In a way that draws us in and makes us see the subject in a deeper, more meaningful way. In a way that makes me want to know the story, the feelings behind them. Is there happiness? Love? Fear? Loss? What makes the picture mean what it does?
So, instead of “life in color,” let’s live a little in black and white. I chose a few random photos of Il Volo in this medium, and would like to know what you see. Choose one of the photos — or more than one — and tell us what you think.
Have a great weekend!
