i ❤ faces: Week 20



This week was a toughy! I was so hoping that we'd get a great beach shot when we were in Florida but it rained the last two nights we were in town. Bummer!

That left me with no shots of a silhouette and no clear horizons. Ironically enough, Atlanta was finally getting all the rain we needed, so this week didn't leave us much chance for sunsets or clear skies. Finally, on Friday, J and I just went outside with C for a quick photo shoot.

While my entry is hardly original (5 out of the first dozen entries i've looked at feature children being thrown in the air!) it was still fun.

tutu and headband made by Festive Frills

As always, head on over to I❤Faces to see incredible photographs of silhouettes. You won't be disappointed!

Maybe you'll even consider entering this week...?!?!

PS Don't worry, everyone! C had a giggle-fest during the shoot and J's hands are both there, ready to catch her--you just have to look closely.

p.s. yes, we HAVE had a lot of rain in the ATL, haven't we? My bug hunter was actually griping tonight about how he hasn't seen much blue sky and it rains "three or four days out of every week". Yeah... ummm... how quickly we forget that we nearly RAN OUT OF WATER in late 2007! Bring the rain...

This is great, they thowing the child in the air may not be original, but the tutu is! I love how you can still see the pink.

Adena said...

I think it has been raining here in Fl daily for two weeks now so it was impossible for me to get an outside silhouette shot, I had to think outside of the box for this one.
