i heart faces "dramatic b&w"

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
-william wordsworth

This week the focus is on dramatic black and white photographs on i heart faces. I know this photo does not exude moodiness or overall drama, but I felt I had to pick it. My eldest son, as I mentioned before, is my most camera shy. He was sitting at his desk writing a story when I snuck in to take a few pictures of him, annoying him greatly. I may have cracked a joke here, I don't really remember. I just love that I was able to capture that beautiful, natural smile. The moment I uploaded this picture my heart skipped a beat. I love the light casting his face, the solitude of the photo, but most importantly, I love that sweet little smile. He has the kindest heart of anyone I know and it shows all over that sweet face. So as far as drama goes, this picture moves me.

For some high drama and amazing talent head over to i heart faces!
