Black and White Wednesday "That Face!"

It's a face I just can't get enough of.

Dahlia - my model 052-2

Dahlia - my model 068-2

Dahlia - my model 057-2

Dahlia - my model 074-2

Certainly as beautiful as a perfect rose.

And now.....back to that face!

Guess what I said that made her crack up?

I can certainly see why you enjoy looking at that face all day long... it's gorgeous! I love the fact she works for chocolate. ;-)

Your floral photos are beautiful! Love the roses in b&w. Allows you to see every detail of their beauty.

So excited for you and the other women going to Lisa's workshop. I must say I'm a little... okay a lot jealous! You're going to learn so much and on top of it all meet some really amazing ladies. You definitely can't go wrong with that mix!

CM said...

Wow, great shots, as always! My fav...the color one of her resting her chin on her hand. So contemplative yet adorable!

Lori Lynn said...

Very beautiful shots! You did a great job with the B/W conversions. The tones and contrast are perfect.

The flower pics are lovely too.

Lisa said...

Oh, I sure couldn't pick between the B&W and color ~ both sets are just stunning!

I do the contrast of the bold print D is wearing in the black & white but then....oh gosh, the flower in hair just pops in color!

And she is....of course....beautiful in any any color....just all the time!


Gail said...

Her face is as lovely as her name. Love seeing her in black and white but the I can't decide!

And the rose pics are breathtaking.

Dita said...

I agree..the BW allows you to see every little detail of that magnificent flower and that gorgeous face. However, the color shots just made me catch my breath. I love that spectacular flower in Dahlia's hair and her, white and very appropriate, Mama!

What a beauty she is.....truly!
