The Tao of Black and White

One of my favorite websites, Cognitive Daily, has an absorbing discussion of the evolution of black and white imagery, from engraving to photography to the movies. It's hard to encapsulate in a sentence or two, so go here to read the entire piece. Any article that can take me from Bruegel to the invention of photography to the film Casablanca--well, I'm ready to waste a few minutes on that. You'll come away with a new appreciation of the beauty of black and white. --David Schonauer
