Black And White Dreams

  • December 2, 2013

dream

When I was a child, I would dream in black and white.  Only a small fraction of my dreams would be in color, to match normal perception of day, respectively.  And yet there is something beautiful about black and white dreams.  They are often mysterious as the characters generally fade into ones perception much like silhouettes, or a ghost coming towards ones self walking out of a cover of fog.  For reasons I cannot explain, as as adult, the vast majority of my dreams are in vivid color, the complete opposite of those I had during my childhood.

    As kids we all had dreams though they may not be a vivid as the ones we have as adults. But the black and white dreams where negatives for you as a child because you didn’t have the capacity to make it a reality.

    The ambiance of this shot shows calmness but the title I don’t really know about the colors of dream, maybe I will start paying attention to it.

    I also had such dreams. It was a rainy day, and I’m driving my car going nowhere.

    It would be really cool to dream black and white, I had no idea that it was possible.

    I think that when you are a child, dreams can be black and white because one has certain fears, fears that transform into shadows, but when you are young, the shadows fade.

    It looks like the photo was moving, when staring at it for quite a moment. Well, that’s the power of your photography skills.

    This is a very introspective look into the idea of dreams. I found it extremely eye opening and I can’t thank you enough for sharing Thomas 🙂 🙂 🙂

    The thing with dreams is that they can be so mysterious and even frightening at times. I believe every dream has a deeper meaning.

    I have a dream journal where I write down all the dreams I have. Your post just reminded me of it 🙂

    I can barely remember the dreams I had as a child. It is something I really wish I could do.

    You must have a very good memory to recall your dreams so vividly. I wish I had that ability.

    I only ever dream in color. I can’t imagine what it’s like to dream in black and white.

    I can’t remember when I had a black and white dream. That would really be amazing.

    I find this amusing since I can barely recall any of my dreams with any kind of detail. People truly are different!

    As we grow old a lot of things do change about us. That’s probably why you no longer dream in black and white anymore.

    Generally black and white holds more depth than color. There’s just some sense of mystery to it.

    Indeed dreaming in black and white is quite strange. I guess it only goes to show that you are special and unique.

    The land scape with a caption of the sky really looks great. For me, my dreams as a child really doesn’t mean a lot, most times a hardly remember them

    I never truly focus if my fantasies are clearly or in shading. A debt of gratitude for sharing this, I will attempt to recall the hues in my fantasy starting now and into the foreseeable future.

    The picture looks exactly like the way sometimes dreams appear. I love the color contrast.

    I can hardly remember about any of my childhood dreams. I think I never used to dream anyway.

    That is quite an interesting revelation about your dreams. I have never actually thought about what my dreams have looked like, but I remember the majority of them were in vivid color. Other times, I just don’t dream at all, just a blank period from sleeping up tot he time I wake up in the morning.

    After a stressful day, I would love to stop by at this place for an hour just to relax and breathe some fresh air. I would remember all my dreams to pursue.

    Dreams are both a blessing and a curse. Realized and it can bring great joy the opposite and it can break someone. To me however dreams serve as a goal that I look at when life happens.
