Here's how comical my life can be at times.
Robert: What's this weeks theme Thursday?
Me: Black and White
R: Why's everything gotta be about color?
M: Because, I ain't Paula Dean. I is what I is.**
Funny? No? Too soon? Oh well. True conversation, thought I would share.
On the rare occasion that all the kids go to bed in a timely fashion or at least the girls and our son isn't too needy, Robert and I get "alone time". During this cherished time we either watch a show together or do a "spousal project"; either way it usually contains a night cap of the cocktail sort, good conversation, and a chance to reconnect as husband and wife. We are learning that our time can NOT be black or white, all or nothing. There is a lot of grey; give and take, especially with children. So, we try really really hard to make the best of our time.
Here are some of our projects:
|The Singing Butlers|
|Home made pin board|
I grew up knowing who this guy is. My dad was once a photographer in the making before he turned his attention to computer science. But the love for black and white photography lived within him and I think that is were my passion came from.
Now I'll leave you with the** King of Pop... who coincidentally passed away 4 years ago this week.
|The great Ansel Adams|
MJ's Black or White
Go check out some real Black and White photography over at Clan Donaldson.
** I am indifferent to Paula Dean and I only like some of MJ's songs... gasp! I know.
