Ok, so today was an absolutely GORGEOUS day here in Germany. I actually carried my camera around all day and I had so many shots of so many different things to choose from, that I'm literally overwhelmed with choices! Ugh! I was struggling so hard the passed few days trying to figure out what to shoot, and today, well, I had too many things to shoot! I even got some nice ones of the sun setting with my camera phone, but I'm not even trying to look at those right now for fear of being completely overloaded with choices. Ahhhhh!!!! Decisions, decisions!!!
With that said, I made some collages of some black and whites of my son and I'll probably end up uploading those to my fb page along with many other pictures I took, but to choose one for this blog, I decided to go simple. So, here goes.
In this first picture, I decided to take my son to the park (since it was such a nice day and we've been cooped up since he's had a cold). Mind you, we only stayed out for less than 10 minutes because it is cold and I don't want him to get worse. I changed it to black and white and I LOVE the angle of this shot. For some reason, it makes me nostalgic, thinking about myself as a child, and thinking about how my son is growing so much, so fast. And the way the sun rays were shining down on him, made me think to myself how I always pray and hope that the sun will always shine on my son and illuminate his way in life.
So, here it is!
Love that shot! On to the next one.
So.... I didn't realize how far passed my son's nap time we were, so he got very cranky, very fast, so we got into the car and I gave him a cookie (he was also hungry, Bad Mommy! Don't worry, he had lunch soon thereafter and promptly passed out in the car and proceeded to take a 3 hour nap at home!) While he was munching on the cookies, my hubby came over and was trying to calm him down a bit. Since they were hanging out, I took that opportunity to snap a few shots of a berry bush that caught my eye on the way back to the car. Now, I have the full color picture, but I love, love, love, this focal zoom effect with the black and white background and had never tried it until now.
I hope you like it!
