Black and White Wednesday – “Overwhelmed”

the long road

I bet you thought you would be viewing some scenic shots of the beautiful desert? I thought so too, but I am completely overwhelmed at the moment.

I arrived back home this weekend and it took me a few days to recover from the time change. Add to that the Easter holiday rush and lots of work to catch up on here at the house and at work……and it is complete chaos.

Yesterday, I finally had a few moments to download the pictures that I took while away and have yet to do anything with them, but I promise, I will be posting them and telling you all about my Arizona Adventure as soon as we return from our Easter break……

Yes, you heard me correctly….I just got done unpacking, but I didn’t put the suitcase away, because tomorrow we are headed to Cape Cod for our Easter Holiday.

My intention was to jump back on the bloggy bandwagon this past weekend and catch up with everyone, but I have been enjoying some quality time with my family. I really missed them while I was gone and the last thing I felt like doing was spending extra time on the computer……so I have extended my bloggy break a bit longer.

Face Forward Final BW WM

Since I have been a total slacker with the camera……I had to go digging again to look for a few more favorites to convert. I had posted these in full color just before Christmas when I was searching for an area to do our Christmas Card Photoshoot. I love how Sarah is completely face forward in this particular shot. It is rare that I capture her straight on because she is always on the move…… The girl is in constant motion!! I often wonder where she gets her energy….and am quite envious how she never seems to tire.

I also thought this one lent itself well to black and white……. with the big iron fence it really has a nice vintage feel:)

Okay… to work I go!! I hope that everyone has a wonderful Wednesday and a Happy Easter!!

I apologize, I did not make it around last week to anyone that linked, but hope to make it around this week before we head North. I will be back to the regularly scheduled program come Monday. Can’t wait to tell you all about my trip!!

  • Life with Kaishon - She is so precious! I think you should take as long as you need on your bloggy break. I took a day off today from it all! Sometimes it gets overwhelming. : ( And you are so right, our families are way more important. The other thing that is more important is SLEEP and unfortunately, I can’t do that tonight. Don’t you hate that? I have a big day tomorrow too. Darn it!

    I hope you have a wonderful Easter break. The weather is going to be marvelous!ReplyCancel

  • Gail - They both are beautiful black and whites, I love the one with the heavy iron fence. You’ll have to go back to that location again sometime.

    Have a great Easter and some time away Lisa. Enjoy it with your family. :)ReplyCancel

  • Maryvel Friesen - Please enjoy your Easter Holiday!Like someone said, the Internet won’t be going any where and it sound like you could really use the down time! So enjoy every minute of it!
    Both pictures are wonderful but yes, that fence definitely pops out in black and white! Love your the beanie on your little girl and her outfit! Precious! Excellent shots!

    A Blessed Easter to you and yours!ReplyCancel

  • Dita - I remember these shots but somehow in B&W they seem to say something completely different. Sarah is such a doll and now that you say it…even in person I don’t think I’ve seen her full face since she gives the Energizer bunny a serious run for his money. I guess that’s why she and WonderBoy are such fast friends, huh?

    I’m glad that you are taking a bloggy break. You need it. Nobody’s going anywhere her in Blog World so take your time, get your bearing and know we’ll be here when you get back.

    Enjoy the holiday and this special time with the Pat and the kids at the Cape.

    Happy Easter!


  • Kim - I love these pictures! I dug into the files this week too. Have a great easter!ReplyCancel

  • Amandalynn - Sounds like you’re one busy lady! I hope you get a chance to lay back and relax on your holiday!

    I love these photos(as always), the deeper toning, combined with the heavy shadows and minimal strong highlights is really beautiful on these images. You certainly have an eye for the styling element of photography!ReplyCancel

  • Michelle@BornInOurHearts - I remember these in color and thought they were just lovely. You are right, that black fence looks great in black and white, as does adorable Sarah!

    Have a fabulous time at Cape Cod! It’s supposed to be beautiful weather here the next few days. I hope that is true out east, too. Enjoy and I can’t wait to hear about both of your trips!!ReplyCancel

  • Mimi - Hi Lisa, 2 more beautiful pictures! I too love how Sarah is looking straight at the camera in the first one- though I get a sense that she is about to start moving again any minute!
