I Heart Faces







Here are my entries for this week's "Sepia" theme at I ♥ Faces.




This is for the Kids category. I've been babysitting lil' J since she was 6 months old...she's now 5 1/2. As I was going through some old photos a few weeks ago I found this one. I can't believe how little she was! One thing hasn't changed, though...her love of gardening! She gets so excited when I bring her to do some gardening with my mom.




This is my entry for the adults category. That handsome lad is Ian Byrne, from my favorite band The Elders. For the past 2 years they've performed at an Irish festival that is held in my hometown. Great music, great fun...not so great for taking pictures. The stages are very small so it's crowded with 6 guys on stage. It's nearly impossible to get a good picture without mic stands obstructing the view, or audio/lighting equipment cluttering the background. And Ian? That fella doesn't stand still for more than a second! I can't tell you how many pictures I have of his tight Irish arse and the back of his head because by the time my crappy point-and-shoot finally takes the pic, he's off. Needless to say, I was thrilled to get this clear shot of him! Don't you just love the mischievous glint in his eyes?

  10. Wow, considering the description you gave of the concert, it's a miracle you were able to get any sort of picture. Your adult shot is great! I also like his expression. Good job.
