    I can't submit this photo: www.lomography.com/homes/ginny/albums/1791945-vintage-photo…
    The "Submit" button seems to disappear underneath the comment section (probably because of the size of the photo). Is there any other way?

    A popular quote by photojournalist Ted Grant goes, "When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you photograph their souls!" Indeed, the lack of vibrant color forces the viewer to see beyond what is on plain view and recognize the atmosphere surrounding a photograph. In this post, we've handpicked black and white shots taken in various situations and exhibit different moods.
