I am not sure I follow you but my eyes don't see in black and white Images in black and white are highly unreal to me, possibly more than the ones presented here initially but convention has told me that black and white images are real? I have stepped back and assessed what convention was telling me what is real and what is not and suddenly my eyes and mind really opened.
I forgot which famous photographer said: "All images are real, all images are fake"
