Black.  Black as night, little Black dress, Black sheep, Blackmail, Black hole are just a few of the phrases associated with the color black.  Black is the absence of light, created when color is totally absorbed.  It is a strong color associated with mystery, sophistication, fear, death, and power.  A little black can go a long way but provides excellent contrast for intense colors.
Here are a few interesting quotes about the color black:
--"I've been 40 years discovering that the queen of all colors was black."  Pierre-Auguste Renoir
--"There's something about black.  You feel hidden away in it."  Georgia O'Keeffe
--"Black is not a color."  Edouard Manet

So, here are a few inspirational photographs taken by yours truly to illustrated the power of black:
