Day 82

I am learning to embrace the fact that all my pictures don't have to show the person's face in order to tell a story or capture the moment.

What a glorious day to be outdoors. I am so thankful for more hours of daylight in the afternoons so we can be out enjoying the warm temperatures. Cameron and I dug out the bubbles from last summer and chased those little floaters all over the yard. Completely slimy from the soap when we were done, but we didn't care.

I will be away from my computer for a few days. I promise I will catch up on Saturday.

This is awesome! I am so envious! We had a snow storm here yesterday and any grass that was visible is long gone. :(

I'm hosting a new linkie at my site called Fabulous Friday and I'd love it if you would participate!

I have to admit that I'm a fan of partial faces. I think it adds more interest to the photography. Plus, if you want the focus on something other than the face, this is a great trick that you pulled off beautifully. I love it.

Very cute action shot!

Kristin said...

Great shot! Even without a face, it tells a wonderful story.
