If not now, when?

The photo was taken in Cambridgeshire (near Balsham) and edited in Photoshop with my own textures. The quote is from graffiti I saw on a chimney a while back. I always loved it.

I couldn't decide which version I liked better - colour or black and white, so I am posting both. I felt that each had a different message. For me the black and white image seems to come from a place of despair and the quote seems to be a last ditch attempt to save what can be saved, whereas the colour version seems to carry a feeling of excitement and the quote appears to be full of wonder.

What do you think? Which version do you like better?


  1. Oh yes! I totally agree...the first one with color seems much more optimistic...sort of like a reminder to enjoy life while the black and white one is more sad and haunting! xo

  2. Interesting how the change of colour totally changes the meaning of the phrase. I prefer the first one only because the black and white one makes me uneasy!
