Wow - love that first picture of your son. That face is ADORABLE! And thank you for sharing the whys behind converting to b&w. I would not have know your husband's face was turning red or that your son was wearing a pink lifejacket. lol!
I love black&white photography. I think, one out of ten photos I get printed is b/w.
Challenge - Photo Challenge: Black & White Processing

Galleries: Scrapbooking, Photography
Back when film was the ONLY option for photos, I loved splurging on a roll of black & white film once or twice a year. Now, with digital photography, black and white is always an option!
There are many reasons to convert a photo to black and white. Here's why I converted these photos: (1) I just loved the way the black and white really allowed the focus to be on the “photo within” on this one of my son playing with our point & shoot camera. (2)Sometimes black and white is just more flattering - especially when your husband is turning a little bit red in the face while he's making music! and (3)Sometimes, black and white will preserve dignity. ;) We went on vacation and forgot to bring our son's life jacket with us, so he had to use a pink life jacket that was already at the vacation house. He was NOT happy about it - so I opted to convert all of the photos that showed the obviously pink jacket to black & white so he wouldn't be upset when he saw his photos.
This week your challenge theme is to share a photo you've converted to black & white! Bonus points if you'll share WHY you chose to convert it! Have fun–I can't wait to see your photos!
