Black and White in Yosemite

Yosemite Falls drop a total of 2,425 feet from the high country to the valley floor.

Thanks to artists like Carlton Watkins and Ansel Adams, Yosemite has become synonymous with black and white photography. To those of us who have come after, there is something that just seems right about it.

Question: If from the beginning in the early 1800’s, photography was in color, would there be black and white photography today? In my opinion there wouldn’t be. I think most of us would agree that the intervening decades between photography’s inception and the invention of color film provided the necessary time for black and white photography to develop into the unique, expressive art form we appreciate today.
