Life in Colours: Black & White Edition

Updated: Mar 4

Welcome to 'Life in Colours', our regular photography series. Our goal is to highlight the beauty of everyday people, places and objects by accentuating colour. This time, we've decided to take a break from vibrant rainbow colours and try out some black and white photography.


“To see in color is a delight for the eye but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul” – Andri Cauldwell, a contemporary American photographer.


Sometimes, when life at Rhodes gets too heavy, it's wise to take a walk in the park and enjoy the sights.
