Black and White Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

When I saw the theme for this week on Sonel Corner’s blog, I knew I had to post a response.  If you click on the link to her blog you’ll see a wide variety of families from a musical instrument family to a family of Plovers and also a family of Vervet Monkeys.

I took this photo of my family over the 4th of July weekend when we were with Erika’s parents at Smith Mountain Lake Virginia.

Then converted it into black and white for the challenge. Certain shots seem to look better in Black and White. This one has minimal white.

ISO 100 f 7.1  1/400 with Canon 70-200 L series lens on a Canon 5D MarkII

  6. Wonderful photography, Ruth. I love the way you caught the little girl’s movement. It adds a special dimension to the family setting. A special moment.

  7. This is a cool B&W pic. Really good balance of energy (the dancing kid) and peacefulness (the lake beyond).
