The color Black in Science

The color Black is the color of objects that do not emit or reflect light in any part of the visible spectrum; they absorb all such frequencies of light. Although black is sometimes described as an "achromatic", or hueless, color, in practice it can be considered a color, as in expressions like "black cat" or "black paint".

      Well, you are setting yourself up for some "Black Humor" here... I like the color "Black" ... it provides the Yang for the Yin of White. And, since I cut my teeth on photography back in the days of "Black & White" photography, I hold a special affection for black. Nice lens!
