Black And White

If there is Night and Day, Sadness and Happiness,  Sun and Moon, Good and Evil, 
there's also Black and White.

Today i inspired with two basic colors i love the most, which is "Black and White". The colors is so inspiring and such a strong color statement indeed. I'm in love with every Back and White theme, color, and picture.. yet my addiction still doesn't effect my closet or even my Blog theme hahaha..

According to Wikipedia, White is a color, the perception which is evoked by light that stimulates all three types of color sensitive cone cells in the human eye in nearly equal amounts and with high brightness compared to the surroundings. While Black is the color of objects that do not emit or reflect light in any part of the visible spectrum; they absorb all such frequencies of light. Although black is sometimes described as an "achromatic", or hue less, color, in practice it can be considered a color.

This white and black has the biggest visual contrast, this can easily be associated to other opposite concepts. In Chinese philosophy, this two contrary color create a great symbol of Yin and Yang. Taoism taught the concept of Black and White in Yin and Yang symbol to describe how polar or seemingly contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world, and how they give rise to each other in turn. Yin yang are complementary opposites that interact within a greater whole, as part of a dynamic system. Everything has both yin and yang aspects, but either of these aspects may manifest more strongly in particular objects, and may ebb or flow over time.

As for myself, black and white give a great balance makes a great silhouette of sexiness and edginess in life. What amazing color isn't it !!
