The Family Rocks Photohunt and the Weekend in Black and White






When I saw that the two photohunt themes were family and rocks, I immediately thought of this old family shot. Bill took this shot of me and our baby in the mountains during the fall of 1985. I was rocking my baby on the rocks (actually it sort of looks like I was doing as much restraining as rocking). Normally I use my photography on my blog but since I had scanned this photograph that Bill took and it worked well for the themes, I'm making an exception.

You can see it is from film, which I like. Sometimes digital is too sharp and clinical.

Nothing wrong with scanning old photos, this one is really wonderful. I agree, it looks more like restraint :-)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

This is wonderful. YOur daughter does look like she wanted to go climb those rocks though! Full of spirit right from the beginning it looks like!
