I Heart Faces-Dramatic Black and White

Kayla drama vignettte

The theme for the I Heart Faces contest this week is “Dramatic Black and White”. According to Amy and Angie, “We are looking for B&W photos that are dramatic, sensational and/or moody in the way they are presented. Please don’t just enter a typical portrait photo that has been converted to B&W. Something about your entry must catch our eye as being dramatic or moody for it to be passed along to the Guest Photographer Judge as a top entry for them to choose from.” The older I get, the less drama I want in my life, so I don’t have a lot of truly dramatic photos. But, I love the expression on our friend’s face in this snow picture; if dreamy is a mood, then this qualifies as moody. And thankfully, this picture was taken at the beginning of March, and here at the end there isn’t a flake to be found anywhere around! Which makes ME dramatically happy!
Once you leave me some love, you can take the drama on over to I Heart Faces and check out the other entries. I imagine it will moodier over there than a room full of teen-aged girls, so have fun…

  8. Wow, this photo is timeless. It looks like it could have been taken 100 years ago or today. Great job and I love the clarity of it with the silhouette edges. Great job!

    And in response to your comment on my blog- I HATE having to watch my boys learn those hard lessons on the ball field. My 8 year old cried for about an hour last Friday because of a bad game and it just about broke my heart. I soooo wish they didn’t have to live through those things!
