It’s not that I have rediscovered B&W. It’s I’ve discovered a better way to convert digital color to B&W. I now use the colors to produce varying degrees of variation in the gray scale independent of Brightness and Contrast. I’m in love all over again. The tools that do this are common now. Photoshop and Light Room have it as well as ACDSEE. There are even stand alone programs available. And for you mobile device photographers, the apps that do this are pronominal.
