According to its official website, “The town of Colma [California] is known worldwide as ‘The City of Souls.'” That’s because it has 1,500 residents and 1.5 million “souls” in its 16 cemeteries. The tombstones, statues and mausoleums are works of art, and, being white, black or shades of gray, they create monochrome photos with strong contrast and a range of tones.

Also, Leica photographers talk about the 3D effect you can get shooting wide open. This photo was taken with a 50mm Summilux at f/1.4. I can see what they mean.

If anyone asks over benefit of monochrome photography this picture is a good illustration, even a pile of rubble covered with snow, granted, with some chairs in the foreground make a picture. Try that colour.
