Black and white or Blanco y negro?

in Spanish it’s white and black…

I wonder why we say black and white photography, not white and black photography? In Spain it’s white and black, yet it means the same thing. Either way, it is something that fascinates me and an area of photography that I am yet to explore.

This is a ranunculi. It’s white! The dots were specks of grass clippings thrown up by the lawn mower.

I wondered what it might look like in ‘Black and White’. Quite a contrast, but I like the dreamy whiter one better. Probably the only time I wished the lawn hadn’t got mown!
