Why Life Is Grey 2

One of the bugbears in my life is people, and particularly Christians, who try to see everything in terms of a rigid right and wrong morality instead of recognising that life is mainly about grey areas and not just black and white. To illustrate this here is a photo from which I have removed the grey shades to leave it only black and white:

Not very good is it?

Can you tell what it is?

Here is the same photo with the greys all added back in:

Now you can see it's a picture of my son with his wonderful fiancee (plus a woman in the background).

Life isn't black and white but it's mainly grey or, as I put it before, grey areas are where dogma and love clash and it is important to let love win. Alternatively 'My Karma just ran over my Dogma.'

For those who missed it here is a link to 'Why Life Is Grey'

wholeheartedly agree. that's a wonderful pic that one never gets to see if everything is black and white.

I like the idea of life not being in black and white, but in colour!

Seeing it as grey seems a bit of a shame.
