Not always bad
monochrome mandrills Mandrillus sphinx

Just a few meters from the previous shot, though on a different occasion. In going back through my negative archives, I scanned in this color frame, but noticed that the film was distinctly grainy. Not ideal. However, later on I decided to play with it, and removed the color, then burned out some of the surrounding details to focus on the mandrills. Added a little grain to the dark areas, and I found I had produced a slightly surreal portrait. The identical poses of the primates, with the back one soft and vague, lent an almost cubist feel to it. I like it.
