Project Black. Take Ten.

Three Peas in a Pod
April 2008

My iTunes:  Change by John Waite  (an 80's MUST listen!)

I had forgotten to edit some images for my daughter and her friends from awhile back and was gently reminded about it yesterday.  Thanks KW!  I apologize to my facebook friends that saw these yesterday when I posted them there!  Lucky you...you get a second showing today!  

It was fun to look back and even though it has only been a few months...everyone looks so different already!  I enjoyed editing a job without pressure and I thought I would share a few that I liked that I edited in black and white.

Enjoy!  Have a great weekend everyone!

Friends and Dirty Feet

SMILE GIRLS!

Oh yay! So So cute!! :)
(it's strange to see my sisters long hair, I'm so used to the shortness now!)

Christy said...

Great shots! I feel priviledged to have seen some of facebook already :)

Christy said...

I don't see said comment yet... ?

Christy said...

Ah, I understand now... haha! Yes, we are lucky!

Three beautiful girls -- lucky to have a photographer around for those priceless moments -- which would be grainy cell phone pic moments otherwise.

Ahh Youth. So sweet, so cute!
I've just posted my #9. So much black around that I've never paid attention to till now :0)
If you click on my name you should get to all my black...

There is such a joy in these images. Love them.

I have combined my response to Project Black prompts #9 + #10.

Mark said...

There you go cheating on your own project again.

Fun pics. You should use that style on photos of older women so they'll pay you big bucks for all the wrinkles removed by the whiteout effect.

Paul Nichols said...

I like kids. Such energy! You done good here!

I just posted #10.

Laura said...

That last pic is so pretty!!!!

Willow said...

I love those photos of friends! I always try to photograph my two girls whenever they're together because they're great friends, too.

I'm on my way to post #10; should be up in a few minutes.

Carletta said...

I'm with Mark - thanks so much for cheating. Wait, I'm an ex-teach thanking you for cheating?
I have motive - I just had to post a black and white of my cat tonight. :)

The shots of the girls are so sweet. Someday they will look back and thank you for preserving a precious memory. Sure wish I had more of my friends and I.

Jenty said...

Oh absolutely gorgeous!! I love the angle of the first and last shots.

Robert said...

These are fun. Dirty feet and all. :)

Gattina said...

Such sweet pictures !

paulwchambers said...

love that top image particularly...how did you create the texture....looks like a photograph that someone found after it has been in the attic for a generation or two. Has a kind of timelessness to it.

John Roberts said...

Great smiles, posing, and composition. Maybe back off the highlights a bit, especially on the bottom one?

Rebecca said...

Pretty! :)

My newest take is up: http://www.ramblingsbyreba.com/2008/07/19/project-black-take-10-and-photohunt-what-is-that/

Melli said...

Ohhhhhh what treasured memories for these 3 beautiful girls! Very sweet shots!

annette said...

what beautiful girls, healthy and happy, best way to be :0)

JC said...

Very cool... oh, to be that young again...

Sarch said...

Fantastic!!! I LOVE the "Friends with dirty feet" - what a classic.

Rebecca said...

Oh, I also wrote a post to explain what things were, in case you were wondering about any of them. :)

Anna said...

John that is a reflector disc underneath them giving them that highlight! It was a lot but I like it in this!

CG said...

What pretty girls!

kjpweb said...

Cute shots! Very nice! Isn't it time to let go of the "No B/W" rule? ;)
Cheers, Klaus

Raven said...

These are magnificent photos. Treasures for life and beautiful as well. I especially like the first one, but I also especially like them all...

Rebecca said...

Love these!! So beautiful! xo

srp said...

I think the black and white photos are often much more elegant. I found two more... not just black and white though... it seems that I favor black with red... at least in most of the photos.

Great shots!

photowannabe said...

Love all the pictures but the last one of their smiling faces is a heart stopper. Terrific job Anna.

b13 said...

Great black and whites... without even stopping by I was on the same wavelength. Stop by and see :)

Jeanne Damoff said...

They're so cute and photogenic! I think the first one is my favorite.

Bob-kat said...

Great images but the first one really shouts friendship to me :)

My third project back is now up. Apologies for not posting more but I have been so busy!

MyMaracas said...

What a bunch of cuties. The lighting on the faces just makes them glow. Beautiful!

Hi Anna

I bet the girls are very happy with the photographs, very nice and I have enjoyed catching up on your photos. Project black seems to have grown a bit LOL.

Hope all is well with you and your family.
