Captured in Black and White

I've to confess that I haven't been good at accepting and posting tags and I apologize to all my blogger friends who have been so supportive and kind to think of me. But this morning, Mariuca has presented me with a really fun tag which is just too cool to resist.

Here is a picture of my younger sister, Jen, and her beloved husband Wesley. This image was taken and edited by their good buddy Jonathan. I've always been fascinated by black and white pictures and it's a simplicity that never goes out of style. I love this picture because it has a feel of the romantic and sentimental touch, happy tunes of the couple. Wesley was the perfect listener, dedicated hubby, and comforting shoulder to cry on. It’s no wonder Jen is crazy about him.

This tag is open to anyone who wants to play. Have fun!

  23. I agree with Mei teng, B&W are as sephia. As for the tags, I'm new to it and I don't like such with much work and input. This one is nice, monica tagged me and i'll do it later.

  24. mariuca,
    They r a lovey dovey couple who barely can take their hands off each other. :)

  25. ECL, JL,
    perhaps you can use Photoshop. there r many ppl doing it. You can alter color pictures to b&w pictures and you can even make pictures look as if it is taken from a long time ago by applying the sepia effect.


  26. tekkaus,
    u are welcome to play the tag if you're interested.

  27. ayie,
    seriously, i'm not into tags but this tag is too fun to give a miss.
    at times, i wonder how people come up with the cool looking sepia tone prints that is just so beautiful.

    happy weekend. :)

  28. hmp and you didn't put your photo =(
    (hiding like me!)

    I haven't worked on the tag (by monica) but i will later today hopefully.

    Happy monday to you!!

  29. Hi Ayie,
    the fact is I'm not photogenic, that's y u don't get to see many of my pics here. So I always look worse in photos than I really do.
