When I was a little kid I saw a black and white show, and I asked my mom why there was no color. She said "Because they didn't have color back in those days." I assumed that she meant that everything right down to trees and grass was a shade of gray! I belevied this for probably over a year then I got that issue cleared up :)

When I was little I believed that someone invented color. You know that's how T.V. got to change from black and white. So I asked my mother, "Who invented color, he must have been really smart?" I haven't been slapped so hard since.

I use to watch a lot of black and white shows, and I thought that in the past everything was black and white (it makes sense, right, old photos were in black and white too!). I was about 9 when I asked my mom when they invented color..

I used to believe that color was a recent invention. When I saw old news films, they were always in black and white. Since news films from my day accurately showed the colors as they appeared I thought old news films captured things exactly as they appeared then.

I used to think that the old black and white movies meant that people didn't see in color back then. That up until color tv came into play that everyone saw in black and white.

When I was about 6 I once asked my mom when the world was going to change color again? She didn't understand what I meant so I explained to her that when you watch old movies and pictures the world used to be black and white. Now it changed to this colorful world and was wondering when it would change again.

I used to believe that colour was a recent invention and that when my parents were younger, everything was black and white because the only pictures I'd seen of the past were black and white. I thought that someone had invented colour a few years previously!

I used to believe that the entire pre-1970s world was in black and white, and that color in the world was invented around the same time as color TVs.

I used to believe that the world was black and white before I was born due to old photographs. When my Mom would show me old pictures of herself or our family, I would always say, "Was that taken, when the world was black and white, Mommy?" Somehow I believed that my birth miraculously caused the world to be filled with color. What a little ego right???

When I was a kid, I noticed that when I saw films that were old, they were in black and white, but the world outside was color. I came to the conclusion that there was a point in time where the entire world was black and white and somehow changed to color. I thought this may have had something to do with the "Grey" Depression.

I used to believe that my parents and anyone older used to live in a black and white world without color. This belief came from seeing all of their photos being in black and white.

I used to think, since all the old pictures are in black and white, that back then EVERYTHING was black and white, so everyone had grey skin etc. I thought this until I was about 7 and I learned about photography.
