Monochrome and black and white are often confused, but although black and white is monochrome (one color), monochrome might be a photo with a range of color that’s not black. Grayscale is a monotone image made of only shades of grey/gray. Hence all grayscale images are monotone but not all monotone images are grayscale…or black and white. This is just like whisky, where all Scotch is whisky but not all whisky is Scotch…at least until you’ve had plenty of one or the other. 🙂 Happy Friday!

  5. Happy Friday, Janet. Love the pic! … and now I’m ready for a drink. Have a good weekend.

  6. Great job on the explanation and the photo! I don’t like Scotch enough for even one drink, but make the comparison between bourbon and whiskey and then it might work for me 😉

  7. Great image! Pondering such deep thoughts to go with my morning coffee …😵‍💫🙄🥱
