Do you ever wonder why I love I heart faces?

click me!
I love I heart faces because:
It forces me to take a new picture each week.
It helps me learn more about photography!
It's a safe place to ask questions and grow.
I've met the nicest people in the world there : ).
It's absolutely inspirational!
So, maybe taking pictures isn't your schtick-
I would encourage you,
to look around blog land,
or the real land if you like,
and get involved in something that helps you grow.
And, if taking pictures is your thing,
well then, for goodness sakes,
grab your kid, grab your camera,
and head outside and take a picture
of them doing something sports related
for this weeks fun theme:
Now, if you are thinking,
oh, but I could never win,
well me either!
But I never even notice!
I am too busy having fun
and snapping pictures!
Follow your dreams!
Reach for the stars!
with what we have.
Success is the doing, not the getting;
in the trying, not the triumph.
Success is a personal standard,
reaching for the highest that is in us,
becoming all that we can be.”
Zig Ziglar

P.S. What is your schtick?
I just LOVE that word.
It makes me wish I was Jewish
just so I could say it with
authenticity... : )

I'm with you, Rebeckah! I do love I Heart Faces, and there are SO many reasons. One of them being that I was able to meet YOU! Love the pic.. and love YOU even more!

Liz said...

That is a great picture!

Marilyn said...

Great picture. Michale Jordanish.

I have actually placed in a picture contest. It was a fluke that the picture came out good. It is the one of Nicky I use. He got to be on the Cats of the Revolution calendar--honorable mention. Which means he wasn't one of the 12 calendar cats. Ha My only prize was a a few calendars but I didn't mind at all.

Have fun with your pictures. I love seeing them

4 Lettre Words said...

I love it, too. And that is a great capture, my friend!

Trudy said...

Great picture! I love the word schtick too...I have a Jewish coworker who turned me onto the word "schvetzin"...that's what she would be doing when we would go for our lunch hour walks and it was really hot out!

Nurse Nancy said...

Love the photo and thanks for turning me on to the blog...I am learning a lot about photgraphy. My thing is cooking....could do it all day if I had the time.

Dana-from chaos to Grace said...

Your son is SO HANDSOME!! I love seeing that face! Your blog is just SO NICE! What a doll you are...

And my word is SCHMUTZ...as in "You have some schmutz on your face" that is my I-wish-I-was-Jewish-so-I-could-say-it word....LOL

Grandma J said...

Your pictures are the best. I love that one with the basketball.

OMG, the way he's palming that ball? Wow. The young man has some big and skilled hands already, huh? :)

mamamia said...

you are so funny, my half-jewish friend! Kaishon looks like a harlum globe trotter in the picture, nice!

Erin Lenore Photography said...

Hey! Thanks for visiting my blog :-)
I like your pictures! I heart faces is awesome, I agree!

April said...

Kaishon is THE MAN! That is a fantastic shot of him! I am completely and totally taken with I ♥ Faces, too! Can't get enough!

April said...

My schtick? Definitely eating dark chocolate, taking pictures, and BLOGGING!

newlyweds said...

Great picture!! I've never entered in I heart faces before, maybe I should!

Martha in PA said...

Schtick, schlep and verklempt they are my favorite Yiddish words.

Photography is my schtick too, why else would I schlep my camera everywhere, and get all verklempt at your beautiful photos?

jen@odbt said...

He looks like he's ready for a dunk! So true and you are such a great person for leaving comments. It is a fun site and has helped me take more pictures (even if I'm still on auto).

drewmark19 said...

I love the perspective of your son in front and his friend behind, both holding basketballs. Very cool.

Busy Bee Suz ~ did you say your schtick was cleaning...and...organizing? That's insane. :) I have a virtual amusement park of mess and disorganization at my house to keep you happy. Ha!

I ♥ Faces too. You probably didn't know that. :)

He & Me + 3 said...

I love that site too. I can't believe that he can palm that ball amazing.

Billykidd said...

such a great angle on this shot!

Tricia Nugen said...

Great angle on this shot! Love it! If this was my front yard there would have been a little trash talkin going on with it!

antoinette marie said...

my schtick is scrapbooking, decorating, party planning and cooking! blessings...

Dot O said...

What a great shot!! Also, love the song that came on - World's Greatest - very appropriate.

The boy in the pic is my son's friend, my son is in the background on the very right - sort of blurry. I have a pic of my son playing soccer on my photo blog.

Freckles is a tri-color beagle but he's fading so I guess he does sort of look like a lab now..... being 11 years old will do that.

Thanks for stopping by. Sorry I have been MIA lately - sometimes I don't want to take time away from the family to blog.

The Animator's Wife said...

Live.Love.Eat said...

Hah, I grew up with the word schtick cuz I AM Jewish. Well, that was before I met my hubs then I unofficially converted. Hah.

Anyhoo, my schtick, is cooking.....but you knew that :) I love your pics, they always make me happy!!!

mimi said...

Your photos are always great and your quotes are too!!

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

Cute pic and I love the poem for I Heart FAces. I wouldn't be surprised if they post that on their site! How awesome

Amy @ Living Locurto said...

Wow! What a great post:-) Thanks so much... we adore you too. I hope this encourages others to get out their camera or do something else they love!

I have too many schticks to name just one:-)

Thank you for the heart faces resource. I will check it out. I am wanting to expand into my photography more - and hearing about heart faces is a good indication that wonderful growth is awaiting me in this arena. I must say, I was overjoyed with my Art in Every Day walk a few weeks ago...and got great photos of my favorite spirng flower, the peony - which you can see at my link.

I do appreciate your generous spirit.
