August 10th - "Crazy, Silly, Funny Face!"
All photos entered this week should have a face in them that has a crazy, silly expression on it. There will be just one category (you can enter either a Kids photo or an Adults or a mixture of Kids and Adults.) Faces must be clearly visible!
Wow. I had my work cut out for me, choosing just ONE photo for this category! (What happened to the child and adult categories? Why'd we go from two categories to one?) I have a bunch of cute, crazy, silly, funny little kid faces that I could enter (and let's face it, we ALL know cute kids get you brownie points!) but I ultimately decided to go with this one, from last year's Great American Irish Festival. (I know, I have a habit of entering pics from GAIF!) I love the looks on both faces in this photo. Brent (fiddler) is a very laid back guy on stage and is a very kind, sweet person...but here, with that little smirk and that glint in his eyes, you can almost see a bit of a "Bad Little Irish Boy" (to quote one of their songs) in there! And Ian in the background...that guy is the KING if crazy, silly, funny faces! He's one of the most animated performers I've ever seen! Here you can see just how much he gets into the music, contorting his face AND his body as he gets his groove on.
We will be having a second, non-judged category this week of "Pets." This category will be just for fun and you can enter a photo of any animal (it doesn't need to be just an animal that is considered to be a pet.)
Now, it's no secret that I have hundreds (thousands?) of pictures of my pets, most of them better than this one, but ultimately this photo was chosen just because it fits in with the crazy, silly, funny face theme. (I know the pet ones don't have to, but it works so well that I just went with it!) Some people will tell you that dogs can not smile...well, I beg to differ with them! Just look at that face! Don't you just want to kiss her? (Oh, wait, maybe that's just me...)
Well, whether you want to kiss my dog or not, hop on over to the I ♥ Faces blog (click the link here or on the button at the top of the post) for more funny faces and furry, feathered and finned friends!
