People’s Choice Photo Challenge-Best Face Photo in January 2011

This week Amy and Angie are taking a week off, so I Heart Faces is doing People’s Choice again!

This is my sister Annette. Photo taken a little over a week ago, when Don and I visited Miami and we all went out to Mojitos (A Cuban Restaurant) for dinner and dancing. The hat she is wearing (which I think she totally pulled off) belongs to her boyfriend and everyone that night ended up with the hat on (and of course a picture taken). But this is my favorite by far. She has the most amazing eyes and I love her to pieces!!!

GO to I HEART FACES and vote for #104!!!

Baby makes five......

Headed down to sunny Miami (or so I thought) this last Saturday to photograph this growing family. As it turned out the day was overcast, uncharacteristically chilly and very windy!! But we managed to get some good images of this adorable and fun bunch!! Congratulations to Jorge and Joadys on their new addition......... another Boy!!

I Heart Faces - Winter Wonderland Photo Challenge

This week's challenge is extremely "challenging" for those of us who live in Florida (which was the only state last week that had no snow on the ground). The theme this week in Winter Wonderland!! So I grabbed my model (ehhhh....husband) and headed to Daytona Beach (which is literally ten minutes away). Here is my interpretation of our Winter Wonderland!! (Please note that it was 59 degrees and quite windy and was definitely jacket weather). Don't forget to go check out all the beautiful entries at I Heart Faces this week.

Another night of playing with water. Love how some of these turned out (as if I had any control of what the drops will do LOL) but none the less they are pretty cool. Had a much harder time getting a good focus even though I did do it manually. So here are a few more and I think I will be done with this for now .......... well..maybe. LOL :) Check out my previous post HERE.

Watching the droplets.....

Saw a post on Ashley's (Ramblings and Photos) blog today about photographing drops of water and I had to try it. I followed a link she had to Jill's (Forever n Ever n Always ) blog where there she has a tutorial on how to accomplish this; so I read it and went for it. Here is my take on the water drops. (Make sure to click on the photo to enlarge)

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Joining Ashley (Ramblings and Photos) and posting my interpretations on this weeks Scavenger Hunt Sunday. First time doing this so (be kind) LOL. Not too sure what the rules are yet but I will catch on. We will see how this goes!!

1. This is Me
This is me using my nifty remote. Corney I know.

2. Resolutions
My resolution (one among many) is to be a little more organized. My husband will laugh at that one (Bless his kind, loving heart).

3. Treasured
I love this man more than I can ever tell him. He will pose for me anywhere, anytime. Not that he likes his picture taken, but he will do it for me anyways. He is a good man.

4. Innocence
I posted this photo on my blog and ironically referred to it as innocence (referring to Christmas). This is my grandson and the look in his eyes just screams innocence to me.

5. Primitive
I was going to post my photo again here (referring to primitive LOL) but I guess that wouldn't count. So instead I found this sword, which my husband told me, that his Dad claimed that it came from some Italian war or something. But, nevertheless its pretty old.
