Default b&w in real life

Well it makes it even more interesting..

Not a single person wearing something in colours.

cold places => lack of sun => winter depression = lack of colours => more depression

you're right, especially the lack of sun can bring even the happies people down, and by the way swedes aren't usually dressing in "wild" colors

Thanks for linking to my shots even if I think Jockes picture is strong enough to stand on its own it is allways funny to link up the similarities.

Another similarity, I have also had winter pictures in color mistaken to be B&W by people from warmer places ;o)

Yes, similarities. I just can't believe this shot is the reality. Is it a lucky coincidence to get it b&w or things are usually like that in winter? Coming from Russia, I do know what is winter, but I also remember my mom having this nice RED winter coat :)

As for the links, they show different view and some colours too!

regards,
anton

The square is offwhite and grey. As for colors of clothes I think we are still in black fashion period even if it was worse some years ago. Maybe it is the price and the short season for winter clothes that makes them stay on for so long.

In the nature there is a lot of color on a sunny winter day, dark blue sky and yellow sunlight, but almost none on an overcast day.
