Sick Days

Kaydence was pretty sick earlier this week.  She had a fever for 3 days and vomited one night too...poor baby.  But we have that behind us now and we are supposed to have a sunny 59 degree tomorrow.  The only thing that would make me more excited is if we lived someplace where it was sunny and warm year round...oh and I would take a 70+ degree day instead too. ;-)  Oh well, I'm grateful!  I'm so ready to be done with this cold and dreary weather...ugh.

Here is just one photo from one of our pajama days this week.  I had to use a high ISO since it was so dark and dreary out, so not the greatest sharpness, but there is something I'm really proud about with this one...ready for it???  This is my very first black & white conversion where I haven't used a single action!!!  One of my goals for this year was to do this and I feel so proud of myself.  I really love, love, love it (for now anyway...i'm sure i'll be tweaking it some) and feel so proud that I have it in me not to use an action.  Any action that I use is almost always tweaked to it's death, so I really need/want to figure out how to write my own the way I want them.  After I finished this edit tonight...in less than 10 minutes...I was feeling a renewed sense of worth and motivation.  I know that may sound funny, but I think those photographers out there know what I'm talking about, right?

Anyway, I just had to share with someone!  Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Awww..sorry she's been sick. I like your black and white conversion. You did a great job! I understand the accomplishment. I almost always use actions for b/w's because it just seems so much easier. That's a great goal though!
