Oh, what a week its been. Less than a week out from giving birth and I am so glad I decided on an easy theme for Christina and I this week. Black and White. How much easier could it get?
Look at Christina's wonderful piano shot. What a great subject to take in b/w because it looks like it has so much history to it. All of the fingerprints/marks under the keys give it such beautiful character....especially in b/w.
Mine is simply of a yellow dandelion that I processed in b/w. Honestly, I never noticed the curlies in the middle of the flower and it made me want to grab my macro lens that second to shoot it. It felt right to process it in b/w only for the fact that it would focus you on the curlies and not get you distracted by the bright yellow color of the original shot.
On another note, this week brought in a hospital visit, but not the one I expected. Monday night I went into the hospital thinking I was going into labor early. Nope. Ended up I was admitted for having kidney stones. Don't even get me going on how painful and uncomfortable that was at 9 months pregnant. But we survived and I am still scheduled next Tuesday for my c-section.
That being said, Christina and I will be taking a break from Team Up Thursday next week. Depending on how I feel, we will see what the next week brings for me. But I hope to be back in action as soon as possible.
