At one time, I religiously scrapbooked them. That ended in 2008, with the birth of my last child. Somewhere between three kids, interior design school, a crazy economy, my husband starting his own company, then ME starting my own company, the scrapbooking took a back seat. I have piles of pictures in storage bins and even more filed on my computer.
Are you in the same boat?
I want desperately to form all of them into books, as well as create a beautiful gallery wall with them.
But not in color.
I want to convert all of them to black and white.
It’s really simple.
If I had left the above picture of my son in color, you would have noticed the red motorbike and his bright swim trunks.
Now I notice his eyes.
This morning I converted a few more pictures over to black and white through Picasa. Can I just say, I’m dying!!
In a good way.
It’s my grandmother. Isn’t she beautiful? This moment is so precious.
It becomes a quiet supporter, a conversation starter, a glimpse into the hearts of our loved ones.
Do you have black and white photography in your home?
I think I will soon have a lot more……
