life in black & white

life: in black & white. i need to remember the arc & shape & stretch of shadows, the way light bends, the balance of things, their lines and curves, the natural vignettes, the way things fall & rise, or pull or drag -- the subtleties that monochrome makes clear. top knot

  2. I love black and white photography, and these shots are all lovely. I am shocked that your husband let you post a picture of him in his boxer briefs...my boyfriend hates it when I post pictures of him on my blog, and he's fully clothed in all of them! haha. That said, it is a really sweet picture of him and your puppy :)

  9. i think my favorite one was that sink shot- black and white really did make it strange and different. that's so interesting how it's able to transform like that
