Passing time

Took the opportunity of my mother's 84th birthday to capture a few portraits of both mum and dad. Here's one of the basic images.

The setting of the library at mum's care home was a little distracting in terms of colour from the books. Black and white is therefore best and the image really benefits from that simple change. I also wanted a more modern feel - it's very tempting to add sepia tones to this sort of image. Instead I've gone for a cool toned image and pushed the contrast a little as I think it doesn't make sense to remove the feeling of age from their faces.

I like it because it's not what you regularly see from this type of image. Here's another with similar treatment.
