...along with WW, this picture is also a part of Simplicity's & and then, she {snapped} photo challenge... this week's theme: kids! :)
 I took this photo with my 40d and my 50mm/1.8.  Henry was crawling on Maeve's bed, which happens to be that lovely WHITE color :).  I used the high contrast b&w ( and messed with the toggles to get it to my liking ;) in lightroom.  I also added a really tiny vignette in photoshop.  I hate, hate, hate, over-edited photos- and at first I wasn't digging the super black space in the lower left hand corner.  But now I think it is more "textury" and I absolutely love it:)  Someone gave me the idea of turning these into note cards, because of all the negative space... I just might do that!

I think it's a great photo, and what an awesome note card idea. I wish I'd thought of that...maybe for a birthday invitation? THanks for linking up this week!
