Yeah it's those early morning, read almost "middle of the night" times that 
are a deterrent to shooting some projects. :-( So that's why I said I'd like 
to spend a few weeks or longer working on it everyday because after about 
ten days of every day getting up at 4-4.30 you get into the routine and it's 
not so bad. ;-) Yeah right! :-) 4.30 is still 4.30 am. :-(   ;-)

I agree where the colour of blood and meat are important and maintain 
powerful photographs, not just colour for the sake of colour, it should be 
in colour as an attachment to the B&W.

I wondered if you've had a run at the market seriously in B&W? As I feel the 
photographs would become more powerful with the people because in some cases 
the overall colour effect takes away from the strength within the content.

A thought.
