Thank you 4xxxx.
The reason for most B&W shots is to keep the focus tied to that which I tried to put as subject. Colour might have provided more opportunity to the eye to wander away... may be.. that's how I felt.
Also B&W made me feel more like photogrpher
Shot most of the photos coloured with progress towards the final stage which really is colourful.
A small confession is required here - I am too new to D photography and know my limitations. Then again shooting handheld with FZ-35 in low light, was handicapped by ISO limits, so many photos are not sharp enough/ camera shake is evident. But could not resist posting them.
