I understand that B&W can change how a scene is viewed, but my personal taste 
is not in B&W. I find it gets boring more quickly. I shot some acros film once. 
Went back to provia and never looked back.

My mind would not have an issue with seeing in B&W while shooting in color. But 
that is my mind.  Knowing what I can do with a photo in post has more influence 
on how I see.

My eyes like color. Perhaps if I had some color blindness, B&W might have more 
interest. Otherwise I like to saturate all my senses, not desaturate them.
