I've noticed that a lot more black and white photos have been shared on this forum than colour photos; at the moment there are 32 black and white threads and only three colour. Just curious as to the reasons why people prefer to use black and white film over colour? Is it the look and tones of black and white that you love? Is it the ease of home processing combined with cheaper costs? Or is it because you like to wet print your photos? I've used a lot more black and white film than I have used colour so far, but that's mainly because I'm still very new to LF and the cheaper cost means that I can buy a lot more film to practice on (Fomapan 100 works out about 60p per sheet, compared to £4+ a sheet for Ektar). Also I find that home processing is much simpler with B&W and I can do it in a spare hour after work. Eventually when I've improved enough (so in about 30 years ) I plan to shoot an even mixture of B&W and colour, and would love to work with slide film as well.
