Week 13: Dramatic B&W

It's that time of the week again! It's photo contest time. Over at i heart faces they're looking for drama of the black and white variety. I'll be honest, I almost skipped this one. I couldn't find *the* picture, you know? So I waited until everyone else started posting so I could get an idea of what people were going for. And then I thought "No one does drama like Ali". I found this picture that was taken a few months ago when it snowed. I cropped and edited and desaturated until my heart was content, and this is what I got. I hope you like it as much as I do :)

Hop on over to i heart faces to see what all the drama's all about. Good luck everyone, and happy desaturating and such :)

    I was going to post on FB that I liked this one the best. I love the up-close and that her eyes are kind of hiding behind her hat. The picture is BEAUTIFUL....but then again, so is Ali :-)

    Love you!

    I love how her hat frames her face! Her expression makes me wonder what she's wondering so deeply.

  • I'm a wife. I'm a mom. I'm a photographer. I'm a lover of Jesus. My house is a mess, my kids are dirty, we eat take out more often than not. My life is loud, busy and crazy. And that's okay with me.
    This is Eric, the man you've been praying for. He's a paramedic. He quilts in his spare time. No, I couldn't make that up :) He has NASH (a form of liver disease, non-alcoholic) and diabetes, but those things don't define him. He's a man of God, an insanely wonderful husband, and the best daddy in the world.. Just ask these guys..
    Our daughter Ali, she's 9. She's fiercely opinionated and strong willed. She's a Daddy's girl, but the umbilical cord hasn't but cut from me, either. She's a gymnast, and proud of it. She spends more time upside down or turning flips than she does walking. She's crazy smart, and absolutely sure of it. She is my insufferable little know it all.
    Our son Dylan, 7. We lovingly refer to him as Chubs. Or Chubby. Or fat boy. Ahem. He is all boy, as you can see by his crazy wild energy. He has the highest pain tolerance of any child I have ever met. He plays soccer and does gymnastics, but truly he is a gamer, a nerd. He is an avid reader and loves to climb. Not to be outdone by his sister, he's a drama king, but to him, I'm the best mommy in the world.
