I absolutely love black and white photography. Sometimes I really miss my Pentax K1000 and the darkroom–some shots just feel like they want to be black and white film. The shots below, for example–those trees look gorgeous in black and white, and the emotions of the image really come to the surface. I make it work with digital! One day I’ll have my darkroom back though
On to the photos!
Andrew is an old family friend, one of the reasons that Mom had the basement soundproofed when I was a kid (they played a lot of jazz). I haven’t seen any of those guys in a while, so it was so great to catch up with Andrew, his wife Morgan, and their kids! It always baffles me how quickly they grow up–the last time I saw little Jonathan I think he was about the age his sister is now! I love photographing families and getting to watch them grow and change over the years. I can’t imagine how much these kids will have grown the next time I see them!
