To be honest this is a slightly older photograph, but for some reason I felt the need to reintroduce it properly. Constantly working on my page to make it a little more appealing lol.

✴THE SIGNIFICANCE OF BLACK AND WHITE IMAGES
Not all photos look great in black and white and one of the arts of photography is ‘seeing’ how the image will look before you take it.
When converting colour it is important to have different tones in the photo so your subject will jump out of the background or surrounds ie.. there needs to be contrast in the image. Often if the subject has the same tone it can look a little flat in black and white. 📷
✴WHY USE BLACK AND WHITE?
In film photography you need to decide prior to taking a photo whether to use black and white film or colour but we now have the luxury with digital photography to choose to convert a colour image into black and white.
✴ Black and white is used often when an image is graphic (like in the fashion pic above), when the photo has been taken in a ‘reportage’ or ‘lifestyle’ way and you want to make this image stronger. Also when you want to cut to the core of a portrait and let the person stand out not the colours like in the picture in this post.🐺🐾

"A good king must be wise, but he should also be kind, assertive, courageous and skilled in battle and diplomacy. Wisdom is highlighted because wisdom helps the king to discern what to do when, whether to show his kind side or his forceful side on a particular situation etc." 👑👑👑 👑
Throughout history, kings and leaders have been required to stay calm and focused in the face of chaos or disaster. Ancient cultures gave their kings both political and spiritual centrality, especially as the king was considered to be imbued with divine powers.
A king must be wise and decisive. His wisdom must be acquired by listening to the counsel of trusted advisers, through his own discernment and through his own personal experience. When actions and decisions are required, a king must not waver and must lead from the front.
The personal and public life of a king must be beyond reproach. He must be respected and set an example for honesty and integrity as well as keeping his word and taking responsibility for his actions. He must win the trust and respect of his people by proving himself able to protect them and their interests. He must be just and fair in all his dealings and enforce law and order in the realm. A good king must also be articulate and capable to communicate his plans and programs clearly for the progress of his kingdom.
How to protect yourself from absorbing other people’s negative energy
By Hackspirit 🎭
If you’ve ever spent some time with a negative person, you know how quickly you can start to take on that negative mentality. Have you ever felt that you wish you had known how to protect yourself from negative energy?
If you are feeling overwhelmed from taking on the negative energy of others, there is a way to stop it from happening.Here is how to protect yourself from absorbing other people’s negative energy so you can get on with living a more positive and productive life.
1) Identify Whose Emotion is Present
When negative emotion takes over, it’s important to identify the source. Is it your own negative emotion or did you pick it up from someone else? If it is yours, then you can deal with it and work through those emotions, but if it is someone else’s, you need to recognize that it’s not your burden to carry and let it go.
2) Put Some Distance Between You and the Negativity
Go outside, take a walk, eat lunch in your car: whatever you have to do to give yourself some space away from the negativity and thenegative people, do it.
3) Know Your Limits
When it comes to dealing with negativity and negative energy, it’s important to know what triggers that feeling in you. When you can identify a feeling associated with negativity, you can identify it sooner and deal with it faster. If that negativity is associated with a person, you can see it coming from a mile away and start walking in the other direction.
4) Get Clear with People
When it comes to managing negative energy and negative people, sometimes you just have to put your foot down and say “no.” The word no has a lot of power that we often take for granted.
If someone is trying to steal your sunshine, setting limits and boundaries with that person can go a long way to changing the tune of their song when they are around you. You are allowed to tell them to stop.
