Some pictures just don't work well in a black & white newspaper

(aka the editor must be aware of this):

This story from the AP ran in the local paper here.

The headline that ran with it : ‘Starving’ Milwaukee finally gets its fill

Is that Prince “Bukkake” Fielder?

Oh, that is so fucking wrong…


I don’t see what difference colour is going to make. The ‘stuff’ still looks like ‘stuff’ in colour.


You’re right. Looking at it in color doesn’t help much.

But one of the things about the paper’s photo is the lower contrast; the bottle at the top is harder to make out. And in the color one you can barely make out a bubbly texture and his top teeth - in B&W it all looks much worse.
