Major thunderstorms today, Jackson couldn't resist playing in the raindrops!
me neither (taking the photo I mean)

one of my few B&W's; this is a new side of the photgraphy medium for me, but I like this far better than the color version

Wow! This is beautiful. Love the way 'natural unfaked emotions' are captured. Pure emotions, pure heart, pure joy :)

Technically b/w is great choice.

Great shot. Good use of black and white.
I think that you could have found a better title, but you most be his Mom.
