A B&W Wednesday

I think my brain is already on Spring Break.  This is probably a good thing, because my sanity was quickly dwindling (oxymoronic statement?) and I think I might have snapped.  But this is a totally unrelated tidbit not at all relevant to my post...

I'm fast falling back in love with the crisp, timeless affect of the black and white digital image.

Once upon a time, when film was all that serious photographers used, I loved black and white.  I relished in the theraputic darkroom hours I spent working on a photographic thesis (documentary about  the Oakland Zoo).  I was constantly amazed at the images that slowly appeared - as if by magic - on my paper.  And I loved the tangible finished quality of the prints.

Oh thank heaven for photoediting software!

Without further reverie, here is this weeks image from the digital files:

Your children are beautiful. What fun to capture their sweet faces - especially in bk&wh.
