Description

This lovely blossom just opened in our garden. I preferred this image in black and white.
The most detailed, high-resolution, and precise component in our visual system "sees" only in black and white. That is my personal opinion as to why we are still so powerfully drawn to monochromatic images.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.
