Mr. Smiley shares a tender moment with Santa.  It is interesting to observe the many reactions to the bearded gentleman in the red suit.  While this little guy is pleasantly amused by the encounter, some children scream with fright while others are puzzled by the whole experience.  To each their own.

It’s Photo Friday and I’m STILL obsessed with eyes…

Why do the eyes seem to express so much emotion?  Is it the contrast?  Connection to the viewer?  Combination of other facial features with the eyes?  A social/physical trait to deepen the communication process?  Hmmm…

Heartbeats within my soul…

Always a miracle… always a gift.

It’s Photo Friday! “The eyes are the mirror of the soul.” Yiddish Proverb

Eyes speak volumes in a photograph.  The photo may appear soft but if the eyes are sharp the world is a happy place…

It’s Photo Friday – Evening Light

Every child begins the world again…. ~Henry David Thoreau

The wild yellow flowers were in their full beauty last night in the evening light.  Evening is the ideal time to capture some warm summer images.

Aperture Priority ~ 2.8 @ 1/1250 of a second ~ ISO 100 ~ Canon 5D Mark 2 ~ Canon 24-70 and 70-200 L lenses used. Blended an image of flowers with the image of mother/child. Warming filters also used.
