Would be interesting to see what a movie would look/feel if everything but the foreground is in black and white. (Alternatively make everything but humans in black and white.)

       Yes, [eleventeenthly] does that all the time.

       Like that scene in Schindler's List with the girl in the red coat?

       That's not quite the same though, is it? It's supposed to emphasise that the huge number of people murdered were each individuals and it has to remain in the background or it doesn't work.

       ah yes, you're right - that was a background image

       Could be interesting if it were the other way, too. Color background, monochrome foreground.

       Isn't this Slough?
MaxwellBuchanan, Aug 30 2017
  

       Not quite - the discarded kebabs, and the distinctive examples of arterial spray on the street furniture, add just a touch of colour to an otherwise drab, greyish-brown environment.   

       And of course the fact that most street corners are decorated with the impromptu gay bunting of police crime-scene tape does jolly the place up a bit more.

       How about Monochrome Background, Colour Foreskin?

       No thankyou, we've seen you in that video, and while it is admittedly innovative, it's also in very poor taste.   

       Really, you should be ashamed. Presumably you'll claim you were young and needed the money and got talked into it.

       What exactly was an angry french woman doing in possession of a foreskin??

       We'll pop a copy of the DVD in the post*. When you watch it, you'll understand.   

       *In a plain brown envelope, of course.

       You two belong together, sewn into the same coal bag with a giant jar of Marmite, a spatula and a bar of carborundum encrusted soap.

       In your dreams, mon amie.

       8th of 7 pleaded with me to post this.... just for you. Who am I to deny such devotion.
xenzag, Aug 30 2017
  

       Who are you ? Well, a right fibber, for a start ...   

       Pleaded ? Certainly not.   

       // sewn into the same coal bag with a giant jar of Marmite, a spatula and a bar of carborundum encrusted soap. //   

       No, not again....
8th of 7, Aug 30 2017
  

       Ok - so it was Max and not you. Does it matter that much? Everyone knows now anyway. The halfbakery is no place for romance and I tried to warn you both to be descrete.
