Tentative love

Usually on Monday I participate in Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge.  But Sally will be not only cyber-free but visiting relatives this week, so there’s no challenge.  Instead, I thought I’d share a photo I took earlier this year along Naperville’s Riverwalk, a lovely length of pavement that winds through the downtown.  I took my camera and sat on a bench, waiting to see who or what came by.  This meeting brought a smile to my face.  The little boy wanted to pet the dog but as you can see, he was a bit cautious.

Do you prefer color or black and white?

  1. Black and white is always a little more dramatic, but I like the color shot here. The green in the boy’s shirt and the green on the dog’s collar is nice. 🙂

    • I agree, Judy. Do you have snow there? We have at least four inches here, which for those living in the Chicago area, seems like a lot. For those of us coming from the snow belt on the east side of Cleveland, it doesn’t seem bad at all, although it is the wet, heavy snow. It’s so beautiful that it makes my heart hurt.

  2. Usually I love monochrome, but the colour just adds some more softness to their faces

    He is so cute. What a sweet picture with the innocence of childlike expression on his face. Is the dog yours, Janet? What breed is it? Really adds to the picture here. Great one to use this time of year for Thanksgiving Day week. Have a good one and may you and Bill both be richly blessed.

  4. Lovely story and image. The color brings out the boys cherry cheeks.

  5. […] having a iPhoto challenge from Sally this week. Janet posted a great kid and dog photo and story Tentative Love. I had already planed on sharing my street photo of Mr. Bull dog. Here’s how it came to be. […]

    A lovely meeting. I think I prefer colour here – the colours go well together. Wish you a lovely week!

  8. Color this time. The colors are so vibrant, especially against the boy’s pale skin and blond hair!

    Colour for me too! Lovely photo!

  10. Such a sweet photo! Personally, I prefer it in black and white. It lends a timeless quality to the piece.

  11. Beautiful candid shot, Janet. I love the B&W version.

    • I thought you might, Lucile. 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to stop and comment. I’m running behind on visiting blogs as I’ve been working some extra hours and trying to get the house ready for the girls being home for Christmas. Hope all’s well with you.

      • Simply lovely.
        I’ve been absent too, Janet, so this week I’m trying to take time and visit more often. You have a wonderful extra work, as nothing is better than being those we love!
        All is well here. Thanks. Hope the same goes for you.
        Have a lovely week.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
