<b>Dreaming in Black & White</b>

Uploaded: April 16, 2006


ISO 100, Pentax SMC Takumar 50/1.4 (M42), approx 1/2 sec @ f/5.6 (shutter opened for 1.5 secs, a book used as 'shutter', because beeping of self-timer would wake subject), image desaturated in Sigma Photo Pro raw processing software, post-processed in Picture Window Pro v3.5

My son, slumbering in the afternoon, illuminated through sheer curtains. Do people really dream in black and white?

Photos of sleeping children are always lovely, but this is especially poignant. Beautiful shot, John. By the way, browsing your gallery has me suspecting that we hail from the same area. Are you in the Seattle area? I'm outside of Olympia. #4613370

Yes, I live on the Eastside. I dunno if it's coincidence or not but it seems a lot of Puget Sound photographers are on BetterPhoto. #4626834

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.
