Goodbye Black.

Those Eyes.
July 2008

My iTunes:  Waiting for the World to Change by John Mayer 

I usually warn you all when my Project is about to end but this time is going to be different!  

I was going to post this image in black and white but just couldn't do it!  Those eyes are wonderful and I could get lost in them.  As I photographed this little one yesterday I found myself wondering how in the world his mom gets anything done during the day???  The entire family was wonderful and all three cousins have the most beautiful eyes!  I am hoping that his mom and dad will be checking in here so they can get a sneak peek of what they will be looking over later in the week in their proofs.

Have a good week everyone!  I will announce the next Project at the beginning of September so come and check it out!

Great shots. Looks like you used a bit of fill flash on the one of the two boys. Did you also on the top shot? Whatever the case, bravo.

Britt said...

Adorable! If we had to leave black behind, this was the way to go!

Robert said...

WOW on the eyes. Anyone looking at this HAS to click on that top photo to see it larger. You captured the eyes amazingly well. Did I already say WOW?

Carletta said...

Beautiful eyes and smiles!
That little guy on the right looks like he is all boy!!
Thanks for the fun again Anna - I've had a great time.

Gattina said...

Wonderful pictures and indeed these eyes have to be in color !!
I posted n° 12 and this morning go for one week summer school for photography and photoshop. I hope I find Internet there.

You're right. Those eyes are gorgeous!

Leonard Blumfeld said...

Good-bye black - it was a lot of fun.

Thanks, Anna!

Gorgeous picture of an adorable kid!
Lovely, just lovely!
I have posted my last Project Black today, it was fun doing, I loved it all the way, and I will be back for more in September !!

Robin said...

You could literally drown in those beautiful eyes.

My last hurrah is up here. Thanks for a great project Anna, I really enjoyed both the shooting and the viewing and learned a lot to boot. I can't wait to see what September's will be.

quilly said...

That first photo is of an angel, right? Amazing. That kid has incredible eyes and you take us right into them.

Leora said...

Yeah, he's a sweety with *blue* eyes.

Thanks again for doing Project Black. It's been a lot of fun, seeing what everyone does with this color.

annette said...

Did as was told and clicked to enlarge, what can i say, perfect Anna!! thankyou for hosting project black, again i learn so much from these. Annette :0)

eija said...

Heyy, another colour project! Sadly I've missed it entirely, because my bloglines has only been showing me your old posts (and I mean OLD - like two years ago!)

Well, better late than never, huh? I've posted my first and last take on black. The subject is very close to yours...

I've also linked to your blog a while ago. Your blog is one of the two (so far) links on my photoblog. More links coming up once I find something I like :)

I love the light in the blue eyes -shot!

Robin said...

Oh, dear...

I'm so thankful I got a last one in before you closed up shop. And we gotta wait til September?? I guess you know your schedule, lol, busy with back to school, and I imagine, end-of-summer photo shoots.

You're right about his eyes. Before I read your words, I looked at that face and thought "He's beautiful"...something so pure, and you captured it beautifully.

As always, thanks for hosting and bringing us together. It really has helped me to "see" more in this world :).

The eyes of everything makes the subject. Not just people. Look at the eyes of a calf and you may never eat Veal.

Christy said...

Great shots, and you're right about the eyes! Glad you posted these in color!

Thanks for liking the wedding shots :) I'll let you know if I decide to pull out the loan and go for a DSLR...

the teach said...

Thanks Anna. A great project as usual. Will be back in September! :)

(Courtney) Eeeeee! (squeal of joy!) We ran out to get bagels and when we got back Deron had such a giant smile on his face and had my mom and I come upstairs! We are in love with both these photos!!! We can't get over how GREAT a shot you got of the boys--the best we have EVER seen of them. They both look beautiful and their closeness comes through right along with their individual and unique personalities. And it's a gorgeous composition to boot (I am not a photographer, so my words may be inadequate)! And, as for seeing our little guy in that photo you took so beautifully--well, I am not sure I have words. Thank you! My heart and eyes are full indeed!

Paul Nichols said...

Well, another terrific photo. You do great portraits. Thanks.

I ended Black the same way I started. With a fence. Thanks for this fun. September is too far away.

photowannabe said...

I ended my project black one post ago with # 9,but loved every minute of the project.
Thanks Anna for hosting it. I'm looking forward to September and the next challenge.
What can I say about your portraits? Wow, super add in any adjectives to go with them. What eyes.

Willow said...

Anna, Project Black was so much fun! Thanks for hosting it! I'll see you in September....oooo, that sounds like it would make a good song title....

kenju said...

Such beautiful children!

I only posted one photo in Project Black, but I just got a few more of my cats, so I'll do them later. Looking forward to the next one.

YellowRose said...

Anna said...

I feel special because you showed me these already :-) Love ya! Thanks for everything this past week... I'm going to owe you so bad when I finally get to ATL.

Laurie said...

Beautiful photos and the eyes on that little boy are amazing.

tommie said...

little boys and blue eyes....a dangerous combo! You rocked it on this one.

DrillerAA said...

Don't kids just make the greatest subjects? These are great and the first one in spectacular.
Looking forward to participating in the next project. I decided not to jump in the middle of project black.
