loving black and white

There's something so magical about black and white photos. Especially in portraits, they offer a window to the soul, showing feelings that would otherwise go unnoticed in a color version. I adore how black and white instantly adds a bit of vintage flair to the photograph. I'm having a blast converting some of my Paris photos to black and white, making them look like they were taken forty years ago.
In short? I'm in love with black and white.

What about you? Do you prefer black and white or color? Do tell!
