The Wall

I've been looking for a good brick wall to take pictures against. I found this one in downtown Puyallup on the side of an antique shop. I ran down there with the kids when Alan got home last night. I only had about 15 minutes to shoot before the sun went down. By the time I got to Taylor I really didn't have much light to work with and I didn't want to use my flash. I hate the harsh shadows it gives off. Anywho, this is what I got. I'm going to try again with my friends girls, I'll time the lighting better. I had to really adjust these in photoshop to compensate for the lack of light. Please post and let me know which ones are your favorites and why. It's hard to critique your own work, I need opinions!

i'm so jealous! i have wanted to do just that for months...go downtown and find a cool wall or alleyway or door to take pictures, but mostly i have been sick lately. (today was a good day though). you did awesome! i love all your pictures and your kids look totally stylin'! i understand what you mean about judging your own stuff. you are way better than me though! there are editing things i just haven't learned.

I think they're all great, but my fave is the B&W of Tate. Great shot. BTW, let's start exchanging good shot locations. I'm on the hunt as well. I can tell you where a great graffiti wall is?!

All the pics are great...I think I'm beginning to really like black and white....you do them so well. I think the kids are so cute...there's really a difference in Tanner's looks on the wall...that's really great...It's like seeing different sides of him.
