Black & White

The theme at I Heart Faces this week is black & white. Take a minute to check out the other great entries.

My entry in the kid category is my youngest running away at the ball field - one of my own favorites.


For the adult category, I chose this picture that I took of my grandmother a couple of years ago.

Your running daughter is very sweet! Love the arm extended into the air. And your grandmother is such an appropriate subject for a B&W conversion.

I love the naturalness and the movement of your kid entry. She's too cute with those blond curls. And the secnd is great too. I think grandparents make the best subjects for b&w!

I love pictures taken from behind the subject...they just seem more real. You did a great job!

Love the moment that you captured with your daughter and the grandmother... I love the detail in her photo. Very nice! :)

Great photos. It feels like my kids are always running from me too, especially when I have my camera. I agree that grandparents are good subjects for b&w. This is a good reminder for me to take more pictures of them, adults in general

I love the expression on your grandmother's face. Picture taking is serious business, she seems to say, I'm not going to smile and mess up the picture. My mother used to make the same face when I would take her picture!

Both of your pictures are so sweet. Your daughter in her excitement of the park : ) is cute as can be! Your grandmother has such a lovely face with so much character. Senior citizens are some of my favorite people on the planet! I just LOVE them!

I love both shots, but I'm drawn to the one of your grandmother. My grandma was such a special person in my life, and I chose a photo of her for my entry, too.

Love the first photo of your child running away from the camera. And the shot of your grandmother is great!

Your first picture makes me laugh ... because I can't even count how many pics I have of my former toddlers' backsides ... as they run away from my camera ;-). Such a fun age!!
