Jamaicans--and many other developing countries I've lived in--call it as it is. I'm white. The typical Jamaican is black. One time I was trying to describe a Jamaican to my Jamaican host mother. Her trying to help me was, "Ohhhh, that one tall black man." I laughed out loud and exclaimed, "They're all black!" I was too new to understand, be able to see, and appreciate the different shades of black.
When I first read this week's photograph challenge, I thought that I might change pictures into black and white tones. But then I realized that black and white are natural colors in this beautiful world we call our present home.
This week's challenge: black & white

It's breadfruit season again! Roasted breadfruit is my favorite.
How do you know when it's done roasting?
When it's only black & white.
