The Creativity Project ~ Street Photography

I had so much fun with this month's theme for The Creativity Project. Street Photography.

I wanted to do something unique to my corner of the world. I'm close to NYC which was my original choice, but then I thought of the boardwalk. The boardwalk and Jersey go hand in hand.

Atlantic City, NJ.

Please click HERE to see what Singwa from Buckeroo Mama has done with our theme. She resides in Hong Kong so you won't want to miss her post! Also, we have a new photographer in our group. Joseph is so talented so be sure you make it to the end of the circle! We always enjoy having others participate on our Facebook page, so post away!

Until next month!

We were all outside playing basketball after dinner and I had her daddy swoop her up and place her on the wall while I ran and grabbed her hat and my camera for a 60 second photoshoot. I watch and observe everyday moments and see things differently now. She turned to me for a split second while playing basketball and her eyes caught my attention. I had to get a picture.

Thanks for stopping the game for me L.

My sweet L. The other day we learned of a man who was trying to abduct small children in nearby towns. We discussed this with L. She said, " Mama, I know what we can do! Just dress me like a bandit and he won't want me then!"

She says the cutest things. I write most of them down now so I can always remember them.

Recently she was taking her clothes out of the dryer. She called out from inside of the dryer, " This is very private! Don't say anything about this, okay?"

One night after dinner we were discussing her plan to move to Paris. She said, " Actually, I'm  going to live right here in this house with my kids because all of this is going to be mine, even your clothes, but not your undawee (underwear). You pack your undawee!"

She has been very aware of skin color recently, and extremely aware that hers is not like ours. She told my mother that she was proud to be a Black American and that now she could sit in the front of the bus but years ago she couldn't. Another day as she caressed her Nana's skin she said, " Nana, you're like a white person....but with a little darker skin."  I keep telling her she is Vietnamese. I even showed her pictures online of children from Vietnam. She doesn't see herself as one of them. I hope she loves her beautiful skin as much as I do.

Last but not least, on Friday she said, " I know how to say you're welcome in Spanish. It's NEVADA."

i{Heart}faces has started a new monthly photo challenge. This month's theme is B&W. I'm sure it's no surprise that I would be entering. Linhsey and B&W go together like PB&J!

Only one photo is allowed to be entered per participant.

Ouch.

I have a million favorite B&W's of L, but I kept with their usual rules of having it be a new photo.

This was taken this afternoon in the backyard around 4:30pm with the 24-70mm 2.8 lens. I used Kellie Hatcher's B&W preset {Pure} to process it. It was hard to choose out of the 35 images that I took. I loved almost all of them. I'll post the rest tomorrow, but this post can only contain ONE.

Thank you L. You earned every lick of that lollipop today!
