I've always thought my wife was a really beautiful person. Even after nearly 8 years of marriage I can't get enough of her and she amazes me as this wonderful, beautiful and frankly much more intelligent person than I. This image I made of her a while back was one of my favorites, but she was never crazy about how the admittedly sharp Leica lens brought out lines in her skin. I thought I'd rework the image (by softening the skin) as the last of a bunch of older photos I wanted to try and reprocess. I hope she likes it. It is one of those images that just screams to me that it needs to be black and white. I could stare at it all day.
