What do you think of when you hear about shades of gray?
Will the color gray always remind us
of the famous, erotic book?
Is that called conditioning? Branding? Being brainwashed?
the sound of that title distracts me
from years of newsprint memories,
smudged sleeves and
discussions about ink saturation percentages.
Late night press room dilemmas, deadline dramas
and a limited spectrum, all based on black and white.
|(News photos were not printed in color until the late 80's.)|
Right before a storm, this is my idea of at least 49 shades.
Can we return to innocence?
