dramatic black & white ~ i heart faces

the theme for this week's challenge on i heart faces is dramatic black & white. i've been doing alot of vibrant color lately, so it was kind of nice to revisit some b&w for this challenge and really focus on the black and white aspect being significant and meaningful in the photo. i loved the way the black & white played up the texture of the lane and field in this photo as well as the lighting.


about this photo: with the days stretching a little longer and the weather warming up, we've been able to enjoy a little time outside after dinner. i like to walk down the lane with babygirl and watch for deer in the field. to the left where she's watching there are about twenty deer in the distance. they come out around dusk, as do we. and it's beautiful every single time.

go catch some more desaturated drama at i heart faces!

An arresting photo, the lighting is perfect. It feels peaceful, and yet the highlights capture the excitement, too. Thanks for sharing. I'm following you.
