SPC - Black & White 2



This is a picture of me watching one of my favorite movies - Ed Wood, which happens to be in black & white. I love black & white films. It's so rare to see new B&W movies because the studios don't think people want to see B&W films. It's a shame. There's something about B&W that heightens the the dreamlike effect of watching a movie.

This is so great jc. The fact that you are watching Ed Wood adds another layer to your pic. Have you seen American Astronaut? Have I asked you this already? it's bw and twin peaksy. I think I have to see it again.

This is nice! I do like B&W movies myself but don't catch them too often. Dora and Disney seemed to have taken over this house:0( But Ed Wood I might have to check out with all of these rave reviews.

Great idea incorporating a black & white film into your self portrait. Definitely one of those, "Why didn't I think of that" moments for me. I love just about everything Tim Burton does, and this was no exception. If Burton hadn't done this film -- nobody would have, but I'm so glad he did. Love the use of the theremin in the Howard Shore score on this, too. Perfection.

What a cool take on the SPC theme! I really like this photo a lot! (I've never seen Ed Wood though. I know my brother has that on DVD. I need to borrow it!)

I agree with everyone. This is a very orginal take on the theme. I love the orange feel of the parts that are in color. nice shot.
