Black and Whites

There is something about a black and white photo that just takes it to a whole new level of ambiance. You can always have pictures of colors and they can be vibrant and beautiful, but black and white photos are some of the most elegant pictures in the book. Recently went to my niece and nephew’s baptism and although I took hundreds of pictures the black and whites are my favorite.

Baptisms are a big thing in the Romanian community/culture. In a matter of speaking if I were to ask another fellow Romanian what the most momentous occasion in one’s life would be they would either say one of the following.

  • Wedding
  • Birth of a child
  • or Baptism

Granted this isn’t the same for everyone one, both in or out of the Romanian community but these three things are BIG things. Take it from someone who has 4 siblings and 21 nieces and nephews. You start with the Baptism, years later you’ve got the wedding, and then BABIES!
