Right up my alley

 

 

I saw this on Tidymom, Sandy Toes, and Jen at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam.  Its a blog call "I Heart Faces", and they are having a contest in two categories, kids and adults.   I love taking pictures of faces and getting interesting looks and expressions.  I love it even more when I capture a certain something in their eyes.  To top it off, The guest judge is Miz Booshay!!  I am a lurker at her site, I look at it everyday, and sometimes I will comment, but most of the time, I just admire her work. 

So this is the shot I chose.  I have many I could have entered, but this one immediately came into my head.

Its a recent favorite I took of Sydney.

Love this photo of Sydney. She is beautiful.

Okay, Thursday's forecast has the low at 9- 9! We are in Alabama and don't do 9. Is God mad at you or something?

I still haven't managed to find time to attempt photoshop yet and Miz Booshay will notice......I'll have to get right on that tutorial of hers first.

Love your shot!

I'm happy to see some older kids on here- the babies are adorable but the young people are exceptional! Thanks for sharing your picture of Sydney with us!

Sydney is gorgeous. I have a feeling you couldn't possibly get a bad picture of her. And I agree...it's nice to see the older kids represented.

That is a GORGEOUS photo of her!!!! If I were her, that would totally be my facebook picture!

Wow! Beautiful!

jennifer said...

Syd is gorgeous. Simply Stunning. She should be doing pop tart commercials like "See this beautiful girl? She has been raised almost strictly on pop tarts. Pop tarts - they do a chick good!"

I think I have said this same thing before. Having a definite Dejavu moment here.

And yeah, I am doing the blog contest thing too. Because I am a big ol copy cat :)
