This week we took a little color break and focused on black and white photographs. Black and white photographs can add drama and enrich a story in ways that color photography cannot. We also learned that you don’t need Photoshop to create beautiful black and whites. Free online programs, like PicMonkey, work just as well!

Here are 36 stunning black and white photographs! We’ve given each photograph a number, which is your favorite?
