Black & White Wednesday

the long road

OK, so I'm going to do something a little different this week because, well... I'm a slacker. I have quite a few photos to go through from the weekend, but haven't had a chance because I have been busy editing photos from my Sunday afternoon session with this beautiful little girl. So today, I'm going to post this one here and you can go to my photography site if you would like to see more black & whites (and thanks to Spring - a whole bunch of color, too!)

Also, here is a partial black & white I took of myself this morning and edited for my Facebook profile pic. I'm not totally sold on it yet, so I may change it again by next week. :)
