Father and Son

Kevin and son, Chino, California, Canon 60d, Carl Zeiss 100mm Makro-Planar

Lately, I have an inkling to get back to BW photography.  There is something magical about it.  I think when done right, the photos come out stronger and powerful.  There is also a sense of timelessness.  Like remembering something from a dream.  That's probably because most of us dream in BW.

I needed to practice my BW shooting so I took the 60d and the 100mm Carl Zeis to church.  I spotted Kevin playing with his son after morning service.  Most of the candid shots were botched, and this seems to be the only one that was salvageable.  It's not a strong image in my opinion but I feel there is still some universality to it -- something that I always strive for in my images (reclaiming the particulars to create a universal).

What the heck do I mean by "reclaiming the particulars to create a universal"?  That's for another posting.  Cheers.
