Focus On Life Week 16 ~ A Moment Best Captured in Black and White

Sometimes, when there is no distraction of color, the image is no longer just a photo but a clean, honest, deeper look at life.

I wasn't sure what I was going to photograph after reading the prompt, but then my girls came to spend the week and I wanted to capture a moment between them.  The two of them adore each other and there is always a lot of laughing going on.  Trying to get a shot without one of them moving proved to be quite difficult.

But then I got this shot and I couldn't have been happier!

Have a happy and blessed Easter weekend!

  1. Annette, what a wonderful set of photos! You captured some special memories.

  2. There is something special about black and white photos, they put emphasis on the subject and the eyes focus on what matters without wandering off into the background.
    These are lovely shots and that last picture is perfect. :)

  3. You have some great shots there A. and the last one totally precious :)

    I agree with Anna sometimes you just can't beat a good B.& W. photo :)

    I feel the best shots I have ever taken of my family are the ones in B.& W.

    Happy Easter to you and your family too :) Cheers, T. :)

  4. Oh just gorgeous! The live they have for each other really shines in their faces.

  5. There's something about a portrait photo in b&w... just gorgeous shots!!!
    Happy Easter x

  6. These photos are so sweet. You and the girls will cherish them forever I'm sure! I have to agree about black and white photos. I feel the same way when watching old movies.

  7. Each photo is perfect in its own way. I actually love the one with the younger girl blurred a bit.

  8. Really sweet photos. Looks like they share a unique bond. The black and white really makes us concentrate on the energy between them. Very nice!

  9. What treasured shots for sure!! Love them all. And how special each one is!

  10. I adore B&W photography for exactly that reason. Removing the distraction of the color makes the subject stand out. Great shots of your girls.

  11. What a wonderful shot, black and white really dose capture a specie moment! It would look great framed, making it a treasured keepsake forever!
