I'm quite conservative with my birding and landscape colour photos - keep it natural, no extreme filters or saturation, though I sometimes use a polarizer. B&W gives me a licence to go more with the drama - high contrast cloudscapes, mist and fog, snow and ice, strong shapes and lines, tonality and textures, sinuous driftwood, lonely shorelines - usually with the hard B&W setting on the Ricoh GRIII. For these shots I do minimal post-processing, if any. The Ricoh is always there in a pocket on my camera belt for when the wildlife gets quiet or other options are not as appealing.

Great context and detail - demonstrating that you can get superb insect shots with telephoto when you probably wouldn't be able to get close enough with a macro lens.

Photos have always conveyed messages and agendas, whether intentional or not. For me the quality and impact of the image itself has to come first. When a photographer thinks a full-page "artist's statement" is needed to tell you how to view a photograph I move on to something else.

I haven't come across that Sontag quote yet, but Berger makes a strong case that photographaphy continued a lot of the traditions from oil painting, including the portrayal of women.

I converted this from the RAW file with Silver Efex as I was getting white fringeing on the posts against the sky when I used one of the B&W settings.

Even family pictures and albums can be looked at in a cynical way - expression of wealth and social standing (quality of the house and family car, ability to travel), values and taste (fashion sense, are they on a beach drinking tequila or standing in front of a glacier?).
If you want to dig deeper, read "Ways of Seeing" (John Berger), "On Photography" (Susan Sontag), neither of which I have fully digested.
For me, photography helps me be "there" in my surroundings in a more direct way and to want to expand my appreciation of the world and my particular interests. Some say we are just collecting "memories" but you can build on your knowledge of a subject or scene when you notice things later that were not apprehended in a fleeting moment.
There is also the potential to creatively enhance or modify the original experience through camera settings, knowledge of the language of composition, or post processing (which gets us back to taste...).

I took both colour and B&W scenes on this trip. I llke the drama and the sky effects of hard B&W - I don't do B&W just because colour wouldn't come out well. I have the colour RAW files if I need them.
Having said that, colour files with the GR III may not work so well as the skies and colours in some situations are not very strong. I don't use a polarizer with that camera as I do with my K3III.
