Theme Thursday - Black and White

Wow, I feel like I've been missing in action for awhile here, but never fear, I'm back in time for Theme Thursday!!!  

While I don't shoot in black and white (just rediscovered that my camera has that setting!) I LOVE to edit my photos in black and white.  Here is a very recent one.  We spent the weekend with four of my children doing a performance on Sunday as the culmination of their two week long summer intensive for the Little Flowers Performing Arts Center.

Ms 17 yo was in a series of dances depicting the Prodigal Son.  Here she is in the middle as the father (mother in this case) with her two sons (daughters).  We both love the pose so I tried it out in b&w.

And then, just because I love b&w, here is one of my all time favorite edits.

So there you have it.  For more black and white fun, check out Clan Donaldson!

God Bless!


  1. The dance pose looks very Greek Theatre. Large gestures and such. It looks great in black and white and I am certain this image captures her memory well.

  2. lol those are both wondeful. Your first picture reminds me of high school and 2 of the 3 friends have had fight so one is trying to figure out how to get the "I sorrys" from them.

  3. Both gorgeous! Excellent play shot, and looks so nostalgic in B&W. The country stroll pic, is just perfect. I love the skirts and all the shadows.

  4. I am so loving all the b&w this week. So much expression - so differently - in these two photos. Awesome!

  5. Timeless! And I agree about the Greek theater...only with girls :)
