I ♥ Faces - Black & White


It's Black & White week over at I ♥ Faces! If it weren't for this site I definitely wouldn't have my blog up to date each week. The lure of great photographs, inspiring ideas, and creative challenges keeps me clicking on this awesome photo site. It's a joy for everyone, professional or beginner, so head on over and join the fun! My favorite for this week was captured yesterday, as my three year old son and his "lady love" visited a local fire station for some birthday fun. The tight pinch of the engine's headset made for some seriously chubby cheeks and a whole lot of laughs!

Great choices! I love how the earphones are squeeeeeeezing those chubby little cheeks together. And the adult entry is beautiful. You can feel the love.

Karyn-
your photos never ever fail to move me. Both these gems made me smile ear to ear - for different reasons, of course :-).

Your photos are amazing, Karyn. The conversion on both is spot on. Julie's daughter is so adorable on that first photo. And your reunion photos always touches the heart.

You always win me over with your shots of our military. Great photos, as always.

(Look at you with fancy borders and a new "photos by karyn" design!) That is one healthy lookin' kid, with plump cheeks. Great image in B&W! And your adult entry is very tender...they seem to only see one another.

That is the most beautiful photo. They look like they are so in love and truly cherish their time together. And those cheeks, well I just love me some cheeks!

Karyn, you keep melting my heart with the military themed photos. I have loved all of them so far and this one is just as poignant! I always look forward to viewing your entries.

Adrienne in Ohio said... at February 24, 2009 at 12:24 PM

Oh, I forgot to mention how much I am loving the chubby cheeks. Too cute!

Megan Renae said... at February 24, 2009 at 1:29 PM

Priceless! I love both of the pictures you posted for I {heart} faces! Beautiful!

Though black and white, the "cockpit" pic is so warm. By contrast, the reunion has hard blacks and whites which highlight the subject matter - to me, anyway. Loved both!!

Megan said... at February 24, 2009 at 6:37 PM

Oh that sweet little boy! Beautiful shot. And I love, love the fat baby rolls in your header. I just want to pinch them.
