I Heart Faces Photo Challenge - Scenic Black and White




I became passionate about black and white photography after receiving my first Ansel Adams calendar in high school.  I love how black and white erases the clutter and, instead, draws the viewer into contrast and texture and light.

This photo of my niece, Sherah, and her husband, Andy, was taken at their wedding on the Oregon coast.  Surrounded by majestic rock and harsh waters, their solid embrace holds a future of promise that will withstand all that life throws their way.

The June day was windy and cold.  Who knew that this pragmatic bride, never flinching, wore long underwear under her gorgeous gown?
