Oh the DRAMA!

The drama of dramatic black and whites that is!



Over at www.iheartfaces, the challenge this week is 'Dramatic Black and White'. My entry this time, is my middle girl. All three of my girls love to model for me, they are going to have TONS of photos to remember their childhoods with :0) perhaps the good and the bad?



There is a story behind this photo. What do you think that story is? It is a dramatic photo in my eyes, and in the eyes of my daughter. She can't even look at this photo of herself, she gets very sad whenever she sees it. I had an 8x10 made of it and she asked me to put it away.

Perhaps I will let you all in on the secret of this photo after the competition is over, until then, I will leave it up to your imaginations. I think the mystery of it adds to the impact this photo has. What do you think?

Come on over to www.iheartfaces.com and see some amazing dramatic black and whites, and jump on in and enter one of your own!

Definitely mysterious and dramatic! Bless her heart; for something to be so painful that she can't even bear to look at the picture makes MY heart hurt for her!

She wants a puppy and you said no?
I am glad you are snapping pictures of their childhood. I think it will be a treasure as they grow for sure!

What a wonderful picture! Let me guess...I am going with the loss of someone or something very special. She just looks so sad.

OK, since the competition is over, I will post the mystery behind this photo...this is a totally staged image. I placed the 'tears' on her face with a water dropper ;)

Its funny how she won't even look at the photo now...looking at it makes her incredibly sad! lol
