Dramatic B & W…

March 29, 2010

So this weeks challenge over at I Heart Faces…a dramatic black and white photo…does the picture make you stop and think, are you  drawn in to the world of the photograph, do wonder what they are thinking about in the picture, do you wonder what in the world was the photographer thinking….oh the challenge of the photographer.  To be that artist that finds that something…for me, finding that something or creating through editing…well thats all part of the fun games of photography. 
This week, I chose a moment I captured with my daughter.  A moment where she was still and playing off in a world that she had created that involved princesses, magical horses and a castle.  For me this is a dramatic picture because I remember that still moment…I remember the way she looked.  And I remember how much I loved her in that moment…so dramatic for me yes. ;p  Enjoy my sweet still moment with Mackenzie…

When you get a chance…stop over at I heart Faces and check out some more beautiful Black and White photography
