Black and White

Just a few of my favorite black and white shots from 2011. While I love color, there's something about the contrast of black and white that really appeals to me. It's hard to choose, but I think the El Salvadoran fisherman is my favorite.

These days:

I've been doing lots of scrapbooking and even have a fun little business opportunity in the works. Can't wait to show you what I've been up to...

I've been studying up on photography and graphic design.

I've been trying to get over another round of infections, and an annoyingly numb right arm and hand. I have some new tests and appointments coming up and I'm hoping they can get to the bottom of things.

I've been learning a lot about patience, hope, and faith.

I've been dreaming of Springtime, Disneyland, and the beach.

I've been feeling so blessed and grateful for my Danny and Dolly.

Love the pictures! Black and white is a favorite of mine, too! Hope you get feeling better soon!

As much as I love color you just can't beat the detail that seems to jump out at you from a black and white print. I notice more textures in black and white as well.

I can't wait to see what projects you are working on!

Did the magic Kleenex help? I hope so -- you deserve LOTS of feel good days!

I love the B/W shots. I can't pick a favorite -- they all have such amazing detail and emotion. Nicely done!!

That stinks that you're feeling yucky again. I hope you feel a little better soon. I have a crush on these B&W photos. My top 3 favorite are the temple, the kid with spectacles, and the baseball: all great composition, focus, and high contrast. Yummy!
