I ♥ Faces~ The Blurb Book Contest

A highlight of my weekend was finding out that my photo of my friend and her son laughing made it into the top 10.  I'm feeling pretty blessed to have found myself in the top 10 the last three weeks.  Blessed, and a bit shocked.  And......a bit pressured.  This week we are supposed to pick our BEST face shot, and enter it to be chosen to be printed in a book.  OH.MY.WORD..... that is pressure.  I am NO GOOD at choosing my BEST.  I have no clue.  My favorites change all the time, then change back.  sigh.......

So to completely save myself hours of agony, I decided to just post an all time favorite, and let it lie with that.  This photo sprung (is that even a word???) to mind as we have had the please of hanging with our first tree frog of the spring season here recently.  This shot sums up what a great feeling it is.

I look forward to checking out some really great photography this week.  Come on over, as well.



I am submitting this photo into the www.iheartfaces.com Blurb book photo contest. If chosen, I grant Faces permission to use my photo in a printed version of a book for commercial use and possibly advertising of a photo book on both the Blurb and ♥ Faces web sites.
