I Heart Faces!

I Heart Faces is a new photography blog celebrating the art of capturing faces and their various emotions. They are hosting weekly contests (one for children's faces, one for adults'), open to anyone who wishes to enter!

It will be a tough job to choose one photo each week, but this week it was relatively easy. The following is possibly my favorite picture I have ever taken (and I usually can't pick favorites!). I love the snow on Leif's hat and face, a few drops melted on his nose and eyelashes. I love the concerned look in his face. (What is this cold, wet stuff, and why do you think I should enjoy it!?)

Leif at One:

This next picture is my entry for the adult category. It is my favorite photo of my Dad. He is a huge WWII buff, and has gathered all his memorabilia into a small museum of his own. We had an open house for his birthday, and he dressed for the occasion. I love the smile on his face!


The contest is open for entries until Wednesday, so think about participating! I don't envy the judges their position. It will be hard to choose from all of the wonderful photos.

What great pictures. This faces site is causing me to tear up at all the wonderful people (who are greatly loved!) whose dear faces I get to see!

Thanks for sharing!

The look on Leif's face says that he really needs something. It is precious. Your dad is handsome and dapper in his uniform.

Great photos!!
