I love FACES!

This great lady just found the best website for budding and professional photographers. It is called i Heart Faces. Not only do they have photo taking tips, Q & A's, and guest writers, but they have tons of FACES. Anyone who knows me, knows I love FACES. These faces are submitted as contest entries and then judged each week.

This weeks theme is "No Flash". I will never forget the day I was challenged to "keep a lid on the flash." My short photography life has never been the same.

Here is my child's entry.

Isn't she a darling? I hope she never touches mascara.

This photo was taken out on my back porch on an early spring morning.

Next is my adult entry.

This is the natural light of my life--my hubby. No flash or glitz or glam necessary.

The light was streaming down from a stained glass window in the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris. He was waiting for me and had no idea I was quite a ways away, holding my breath and trying to capture this thoughtful moment.

His thoughtful moment?

"This purse is SO heavy."

Do you think he will mind if I shared that?! After all, he is holding my purse in such a manly way.

That picture of your hubby is STUNNING! It's one of those rare, once-in-a-lifetime photo ops and you captured it beautifully! It looks like something from a magazine, actually, I think it SHOULD be in a magazine!! You have a brilliant eye! We'll be coming to you again, and again, and again...

Gorgeous photos.

Love Notre Dame - had a wonderful visit there last year - but no photos quite as stunning as this one.
