every colour monochrome

every colour monochrome
seems like only yesterday life belonged to runaways nothing here to see, no looking back, every sound monotone, every colour monochrome, light began to fade into the black
i'm a naturally indecisive person, it's an unfortunate and frustrating trait which i'm pretty sure runs in the family - it's a wonder we get any shit done. with this photo it manifested itself when i had to choose between colour and black and white. certain shots seem to lend themselves to a black and white treatment, mudwalkers in colombia, ghosts in peru, kids with guns - i'd like to think they were all enhanced by a monochrome treatment. similarly other shots have striking colours where the removal would detract from the image, dunes in huacachina, jumping in colombia and a sunset in ecuador spring to mind from my more recent posts. with this in mind i was torn with this photo - the colours in the original were particularly vivid and it was what made me take the shot in the first place. however i tried it in black and white and liked the result. if only there was a way to upload both versions... hold on a sec... i've been doing that off and (mostly) on since 2006... i feel better now. so, here's the black and white version, and...

...here's the colour version - feel free to tell me the colour version is superior and i'll feel bad again.
Well, both versions have their merits; hard to say - oh hang on, I'm family!!!

i thought the double post was to emphasise your decisiveness. on the downside i made the wrong choice, on the upside at least the comments section works on iphones
