I Heart Faces week 24

Week 24 Photo Challenge: “Let's Hear It For The Boys!”

OK, this was kind of a hard theme for me...most of the good photos I have are of Lil' J! Luckily I dug through my files and found a few shots I could work with, and I'm actually quite pleased with them!

Fist up, my kids entry. This is The B Man, a good friend of Lil' J. (Who was featured in last week's entry.) This kid is ALWAYS on the go, and seemingly allergic to the lens. He flipped his lid every time he saw me trying to take pics as he and lil' J romped around the playground. I did manage to capture this shot undetected, though, and I love it...I think it shows his sweet side (and his gorgeous long lashes!) and the lighting happened to be just perfect.

Here is my entry for the adult category. Like last week's entry, this one was also taken at the Great American Irish Festival. This is Brent Hoad, who plays fiddle (among other things) for my favorite band, The Elders. As with last week's photo, this was just a lucky shot on my part...SO hard to get a pic there without audio/lighting equipment in the shot. I could do without the microphone there, but at least it isn't covering his face.

Please head on over to to see all the rest of the fantastic entries!
