This photo has everything we might look for in a good photo. But what I love most about this photo is that it is in black and white. While I may be one of the youngest people here at MSNBC, at least I can still say like an old man "I remember when we used to shoot film and process it the ol' darkroom" I would say this as I shake my finger at all the youngsters out there. But in all seriousness, I think black and white is a lost art any more theses days. While digital photography has advanced the media tremendously, I still love the feeling of a black and white image.
Palestinians use sticks to harvest olives in the village of Bil'in, near the West Bank town of Ramallah , Oct. 27, 2006. For years, farmers in the West Bank have been attacked by Jewish settlers during harvest season. Recently though, following a landmark ruling by Israel's Supreme Court in June, the Israeli army has been ordered to provide some protection to Palestinian farmers. (AP Photo/Oded Balilty)
