I ❤ Faces: Sunflare!

DESPAIR!

Yesterday I let an overly curious Cutie Face explore my camera...and by "explore" I mean "drop".

On a BRICK floor.

Bummer.

Now the poor snap and shoot's lens will NOT close. (suggestions anyone?)

All this to say...

for the foreseeable future all my i ❤ faces entries will be taken on...

my phone.

So don't expect much.


Without further ado, then...here is my Sunflare Entry:


Now head on over to i ❤ faces for some "REAL" photographs of sunflares!

PS I'm SO sorry for not returning the "comment love" from last week's entry. I claimed lazy pregnant woman status but STILL feel guilty about not getting back to most of you! I promise to change the error of my ways this week!

Oh NO!! Looks like a camera will be on your Christmas list...

but the picture is awesome!

Kelly said...

Oh no! This is too familiar to me, as Lincoln dropped my sad point and shoot last week. We have the opposite problem, though. The lens won't open all the way so in every shot, I have 2 black triangles across the edges of the picture. They can be cropped out, but it still makes me sad...maybe the camera fairy will pay both of us a visit : )

Oh crap, on the camera drop. Oh WOW on the phone photo! Wouldn't it be hilarious if you WON with your phone pic? hee....

the monkey's mama said...

HA! umm NO. not going to happen BUT yes...that would be hilarious :0

With a little help from picnik phone entries are at least somewhat more valid!

Christine Pobke said...

oh noooooo!!!! sucks. but your phone pic is awesome! :) Great FLARE!!!! and looks like someone is getting a new camera for xmas!! xoxo

Life with Kaishon said...

I really love it! Wow. I mean, you know what I love the most? I love that it is a REAL ordinary moment. I think it is spectacular! And you are a fab mommy!

Now listen, don't feel guilty about not commenting on every comment you get. It is too hard to do that! Just do the best you can and make sure you are always enjoying yourself because if this gets to be work, well then you must stop doing it at once : ) Do you hear me!

OH NO!!! I would have just about died. I'll be praying for your camera to have a miraculous recovery this week!

Look at that flare though. You rocked it!

Just goes to show you that it really has very little to do with the camera and so much to do with the amazing photographer.
Wonderful photo.

Josh, Steph, The Boys and Maddie said...

njo suggestions on the camera. Just happened to me on my prime lens and it cost me over $200 to fix... ugh! The price we pay for beautiful photos.

Great capture on the sun flare too!

brooke said...

Oh no!! That is awful!! Wish I had some advice on what to tell you to do but I'm really not sure. :( Surely there's got to be something you can do that will fix it. I sure hope so!!! Camera phones are great!! Good luck! :)

**Nicole** said...

Oh dear! That's so sad!!! but your camera phone pic turned out AWESOME! :D I don't get to do this week because my camera doesn't do it right as it's about to die itself!
