So I got carried away, but its certainly no loss to anyone. In the older days where picture control is achieved not by dialing a dial but by changing the film entirely, I also recall immersing myself in black and white photography for a season with my Contax T3.
And here's one of my favorites! Father and son shot with monochrome film installed. The boy is relative and as you can see in the picture, commands the whole scene of this shot.
