Beauty in Black and White at i-City Shah Alam

“Shades of grey wherever I go
The more I find out the less that I know
Black and white is how it should be
But shades of grey are the colors I see.”
..... Billy Joel (American pianist, songwriter, singer)

The trees in the picture are lighted up with white colour LCD lights. They look nice when contrasted against the pitch dark sky. Photo taken with the newly released Casio Exilim EX-Z16 camera.

How do you see the world?

People who see the world only in extremes are considered 'black and white thinkers'. In their views, life is either black or white, it is either you love or hate something because it is either bad or good. Similarly a person is either clever or stupid and if things are not perfect, then it is terrible!  Experts call this primitive thinking, like a child who view things as either black or white when they pick up their vocabulary and learn to organise their thoughts. However, for adults, this extreme view of life may contribute to depression, craze for perfection and negative thinking. It may be good to learn to see the beautiful shades of gray to add some zest of colour in living our lives.

1. Do you think that black and white thinkers are
a) focused and know what they want out of life, or
b) very rigid and stubborn?

2. Do you think that there are more males than females or equal in numbers of black and white thinkers?

This is my entry for this week's The Weekend In Black And White. My grateful thanks to Dragonstar for hosting this wonderful site. To participate or view the world in monochrome, please click here.
