everything is more beautiful in black and white.

it's enchanting, really
looking into a world without color
it's the way we imagine the 20's and the 30's 
when we watch the film grain on the screen.
and we look at our world today and realize, 
with all it's bustling pedestrians and messy subways
that we need to stop and edit the hues we see, 
because everything is more beautiful in black and white.
