“Life is like a good black and white photograph, there’s black, there’s white, and lots of shades in between,” artist Karl Heiner once said. Taking your shot
in black and white certainly doesn’t limit your opportunities to showcase all the shades of life, as proven by these beautiful pics by The Phoneographer Patrick Walsh’s Facebook community Nothing but a Nokia.
Their current theme is Black and White, and the photos posted so far simply needed to be shared.

Well, what do you think? While we love life in multiple colours, we at Nokia Conversations love black and white in smartphone photography…particularly now that you can make the most of lenses and quick editing tools!
The ability to focus on a tiny detail, on the variations of light, on the perspective and on the contrasts, while creating an almost magical atmosphere.
Before I wax too lyrical, I think it’s time to take my Lumia 920 on little a black and white photo tour… In the meantime, which of the above made you feel most poetic? Tell us in the comments below. And, if you’d like your very own photos featured here, join Nothing but a Nokia.
The community’s open to everyone – as the name highlights, all you need is your Nokia smartphone and a bit of creative spirit.
