Photographs from Saturday


Meadville Tribune

MEADVILLE — I usually prefer black and white photographs as long as color isn't a strong element in the story. Hot air balloons, sunsets and other things that color makes us understand the photograph better. Most of the time I find color to be a distraction to the content. We might have our eye taken by a strong color in the background and it doesn't allow us to search within the frame for the contextual elements that make up the story. Most items in my portfolio tend to be black and white. So I offer these pictures from today in black and white. – Richard Sayer, staff photographer/Meadville Tribune
