Oh, my sistas! The dark days leading up to Christmas are upon us!
We get up in the dark and we come home in the dark…kinda like the poor little pit ponies of old.
And, speaking of dark, something about photos of our beloved Rob in black and white speaks to me any time of year.
Maybe it’s the contrast in lighting that moves me. Or, as in this one, it’s the fact that he was obviously caught unawares.
What could he possibly have been thinking about?
When Rob is “dark,” my heart aches for him. It’s there in his eyes…
But, when Rob is “light,” his lovely soul shines through!
Now, if ever a black & white photo of Rob absolutely haunted me, it was this one. Damned if I don’t get completely lost stroking his eyebrows, his eyelashes, his nose, lips and scruff.
Of course, lack of color doesn’t always mean pure black & white. I couldn’t choose between these two sepias by the amazing Jules, so I’m giving you both!
See why I couldn’t choose?
A subtle use of color in a black & white photo of The Pretty just makes it, well…really pretty! *sigh!*
There was a certain beauty in this one I couldn’t resist…can’t quite put my finger on it. Oh, hell! Who am I kidding? I’d like to put more than my finger on it!! *Down, Rita!*
And, finally, in a really good black & white, details emerge that might otherwise be missed in a color photo.
Case in point would be the gorgeous Details photo I posted recently. MelbieToast has been kind enough to give us her black and white version, in which we are treated to a much better glimpse of the Promised Land!
I saved that one for last cause I knew you’d get stuck on it and miss out on all the rest *snickers!*
Happy Sunday, ya’ll!
