Saturday Selfies: Take 3

Black and white.  Why was this week so hard to do?  You just take a photo and then convert it to black and white.  Easy, right?  No, apparently not.  I sat down several times this week taking photos to use for this challenge only to be completely disappointed with them once I saw them in black and white.  But last night, at 8pm, after the husband came home late from work, after a long week of cranky baby, I took a bath for the first time in 4 days.

Yes, I admitted on the internets that I went THAT long without showering.  I'm not proud of it.  But it's the truth.  Being a mom does weird things to you.  Like lower your personal tolerances and expectations.  Before you know it a couple days can pass and you don't even register that you have not showered.  But 4 days is quite a stretch and I was very happy last night to be able to hand off a woeful baby to the husband once he finished eating his cold dinner.  And I snuck the camera upstairs with me.

Can you see how tired and relaxed I am in the corner of that eye?  A hot bath at the end of a trying week = best gift you can give the mom of a wee one.

Oh - and the photo is meant to show my hair floating on the top of the water.  

Swing by Audrey and see who else is taking part in Saturday Selfies.  See some black and white photos that are actually good.


  1. I love this picture! Much more creative than mine and I really like how you cropped it, the composition really makes your eyes search the whole thing. Great job!

  2. Awwe. Thanks. But I like yours better cause it was such a fun moment between you and Ev!
