i{heart}faces: pets

Thankfully, Grandma's puppy is much more social than our kitties

The girls LOVE the attention from a pet 
i think the feeling is mutual

i{heart}faces: shadows

I promise i'm still taking photos and editing them

i'm just getting lazy about the actual posting of them

But it seems i cannot resist posting for

the weekly iheartfaces contest!

Speaking of not having time, I didn't have time to pursue a really cool SHADOWS shot

i've seen some spectacularly creative photographs out there already.


It will be worth just a bit of your time 
(sense the theme?!)
to check out more entries after you're done visiting here!

(Photograph taken in the early morning hours following a City Camp overnight)

edited to add:

can you believe it?!

a lot of things are debatable

in this photo

(for example: is she Irish? Shouldn't the mom do something about that creepy Leprechaun? etc)

She's a real runner now


but don't be too alarmed

1/10 of a lap is about all she can muster

one day, though...

i{heart}faces: sun flare

ooo how i love sun flare

there's something so romantic

so ethereal 

so nouveau & risky & hip about not having a perfectly lit picture 

i had a few to choose from this week

but really, i think this photograph sums up the way i feel about sun flare:

it is romantic
it is ethereal
it is a an image of my family ingrained in my mind
on the very last day of 2010

where we literally let the sun set on a fabulous year

for more fantastic sun flare images, visit iheartfaces!

*the awesome thing is, it really IS this beautiful

with only an online editor to my name, nothing "cool" or extra was added*
