"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Photo Friday: Black and White

Welcome to Photo Friday sponsored by the brilliant and beautiful Calliope of Creating Motherhood. I was so excited when she announced the theme of Black and White. I have two very different but equally striking pics I have converted to black and white that I want to share with you. The first photo was taken during a trip to the local park...
on the jungle gym

and, the second shot was taken when my middle son Joey was about 11 months old (you can see the original in color here)...
my beautiful boy

Now, head on over to Calli's y'all and check out everyone's photos this week...and, break out those cameras and participate next week.

...love both your pictures...

...the shadows in the first one are mesmerizing.

...in the second, the peace on the face of the baby is alluring.

Lovely! The pic of Joey is adorable. Please tell me you have that framed somewhere in your home. The jungle gym one reminded me of one of those old art house films... I half expect to see a high glam woman in a 50s style black dress walk through the shot.
