Black and White...mostly

It's always great to have someone new come and leave a comment or two.  This week it was Dan from Slapinions.  So I wandered over to take a peek at Dans journal.  By doing that I found Krissy's weekly photo shoot in her journal at Sometimes I Think.  This week the subject is "Black and White". 

Perfect!  I love black and white pictures!  First, there is this picture that I found just this year.  I'd never seen it before.  It is my mother and I sitting on a lawn chair back when I was probably 3 or 4.  Just about Rylies age.  So I'm going to share that one first.

And no...that is not a cigarette in my mouth.  Apparently I was chewing on my hood string.  Don't ask...it was years ago and I have no idea why.  LOL

The next one is a picture I took of Rylie this Christmas.  I converted it to black and white.  However, I love her blue eyes and couldn't bear to change those too, so I left them blue, although they look so blue gray in this picture so their color is a wee bit hard to see.

Well, that's it.  My Black and White photo shoot.  That was fun.  I'll have to be sure to go back and participate again.

Have a great weekend and be safe!

Welcome to any newcomers & hugs to all my friends!

Whoa! I was on the phone with my mother-in-law when I clicked on your journal and was stunned to see that photo! Your Mom, at least in that single photo, looks exactly like my mother-in-law did in all the photos of my wife's childhood. Freaky coincidence.

Thanks for the mention.

I love the photo of you and your mom, you both look like you were having a good time laughing and enjoying being together. :-)

Your daughter is beautiful  I've often done the same thing with my granddaughter as I love her blue eyes.  

Hope to see you around more!
