I Heart something other than faces…

I can’t even say what this week’s theme is.

I will just say this picture has one of them in it : )

My Mom is not going to be a fan of this theme!

I am nervous about the phone call all ready!

Do you take pictures of behinds often?

Hmm. I'm way to old to be looking at this. =)

Drew said...

Look at you...all ready for this week's theme. I love this picture. So happy and a very pleasant tush as far as tushies go. :)

I have a very poorly taken picture that I'm probably going to use. I have better ones that I've taken in the past, but I'm trying to challenge myself.

I just realized I haven't sent a reply to your question yet. I was trying to make a video to show you how to work with Elements, but I couldn't get the software to work. Then I forgot about it. :( I'll get on that soon.

Hope you're having a great holiday!

Busy Bee Suz said...

This is so funny. I DO take lots of pictures of the backside of people...not really for their 'butts', but for the pure aspect of it. :)

Marilyn said...

No, not often or at all. Ha But I do get thumbs a lot and the floor quite often.

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

Oh man...that is a great theme...and surprisingly, I have the PERFECT picture..altho with those awesome balloons..you are in the running!!!

I heart bottoms too~

jlo said...

Good Lord. Glad it's not me!

Grandma J said...

Buns? Is the theme buns...or butts?

Any which way, I think you have the best shot of the week! Love you!

Kelly said...

I love this theme for IHF this week! I am always taking pictures of my son from behind...he never wants to look at the camera! That is a great picture...love the balloons!

Pumpkin Delight said...

Bottoms?
Remind me to never walk in front of you.

Muthering Heights said...

LOL, nope...only occasionally! :)

Rosina said...

Rebeckah! You made me laughed out loud. I love that 50-50 rule quote..it's so true!

And this is a "lovely" behind..accompanied by many beautiful colors! :)

Lolli said...

Lovely picture! I have several shots of people's back sides....not focused on their backsides, of course...

The one I chose to post this week is not a fantastic shot, but it's a fun one and the 1st that came to my mind for this theme.

Mindy said...

What a cute tush! I love everything about this!!

Brooke said...

The perfect toosh capture! You can even feel the sway of her hips.

Summer said...

I love how brightly colored the photo is!

lifebythecreek said...

Girl, you just made me laugh out loud for REALZ! Hee.. I can just SEE your mom furiously dialing the phone.. "Becky? Honey, WHAT were you THINKING??" heeee..
I love the pic.. there's some serious swing in THAT backyard, girlfriend. Love it!

Elaine at Matters of the Heart) said...

This is just perfect. I love it.

Taylor said...

Love it! The colours are great. LOL about the call, did you get an ear full?

Tracey said...

Holy cow! What a great picture! Just beautiful and I LOVE the colors!

He & Me + 3 said...

Gorgeous picture and yes I love taking pictures from behind...although I didn't really have a good one to post for this theme. Hmmm...I need to work on it a little more. Love the balloons too.

~RAch~ said...

That's your MOM!?!!? I don't have a bum that looks that good and I'm only 27!!!!! Holy Moly. Great shot (and great jeans! LOL)

Crystal said...

Great photo I love the colors so bright and beautiful :)

Terresa said...

Nope, but my husband does. Of me. all the time. Then I find them & delete them.
:)

Billykidd said...

aww... c'mon. what does your mom have against tooshies?! ;)

GREAT shot! the color is fantastic.

Tomara said...

Very nice! I love how vivid it is. The balloons are fantastic!

Tiffany said...

Pictures from the back are actually my favorite- I have one of my son and husband at the pitchers mound in little league- love it.

Thank you so much for the comment you left about my party- I loved your tree idea AND that brie, jam, dough deliciousness sounds heavenly!!!!

Buckeroomama said...

I don't take pictures of bums that often, although I do have a few requisite bare baby bums ones of my kids. :)

Sarah said...

cute!

Jan said...

Love it!! Very cool picture!! And, the balloons add a great touch!!

Carrie said...

You are always so stinkin' clever! I guess that is why I always make sure to stop by and see your entry. Great photo and the quotes are priceless!!!

CaraBee said...

Before I saw the last line, I knew it had to be behinds! Too funny! Great pic. And a great behind! Little jealous, actually. :)

righteousnessbyfaith said...

LOL!!!! you're too funny!
love the shot!

Christal said...

hey Becky, I think that is your name... I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! I love your picture! I love the balloons, and I can only wish I had that size of bum! Very nice pic!

Tiaras said...

what is so bad about this behind?

smiles4u said...

This is a great picture! I love pictures of people from behind...not so much for their butt's unless it's a cute little person one but just because I like that aspect. XX Lori

The Things We Carried said...

Your mother doesn't like balloons ;)!

Amanda said...

sooo good.. Love it

Jeanne Selep said...

This is an awesome photo, of balloons, and one of the best for this weeks challenge.

Jeanne Selep said...

And I do take photos of backs, people walking away, several times a year. But less then 1% of my photos. And they are much more back body shots, no emphasis on bums, for sure!

Carrie @ Sweet-Bliss said...

If it makes you feel better - I looked straight at the balloons! I love them in pictures, trying to figure out how to incorporate them in a couple engagement picture sets I have coming up.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and your sweet comment about my tree - and yes! I love this season, good luck with getting yours up and can't wait to see it!

-Carrie

Melinda said...

Holy moly - look at the colors and clarity of this photo!! I am so impressed with your photography skills lately!! Gorgeous photo!!!

Christine said...

This is a beautiful photo! Only if my tooshie looked that good. :P

Liz said...

I think this is a cute picture!

Frau said...

I love pictures with balloons! My daughter always takes pictures of my husband and I walking. At first I was like omg my ass is huge then I'm like ah! what a sweet picture she captured! Than I automatically go back to OMG my ass is huge!

A said...

Love how the scarf works with the balloons! Very, very nice use of the colors working together.

Fabulous shot!!!

4 Lettre Words said...

Stunning and so different! Love it, Rebeckah!!

Martha in PA said...

LOL! You are too funny! No, I don't often photograph tushes, but you did a great job of composing this one! At least you had a photo to enter!

Christy said...

I tend to take a lot of them while at the beach. Something about people staring off onto the horizon that gets me every time!

BlondeShot Creative said...

nice colorful image

jen@odbt said...

Great shot! I think the requirement is you have to be 18 or younger for a bum shot :) I don't intentionally take bum shots but do love the ones of my kids that I've captured.

Keshia said...

I love it! Your words make me laugh!

Briana said...

This photo has a great attitude to it. I didn't know butts could have attitude :)

Sarah Jones said...

I love the tooshie and the balloons! Super cool picture!

Rhonda said...

Great photo!!!

In response to your comment: The Blind Side was very good. Not quite the crier I was expecting it to be, but still very good! I am reading Precious right now. That will be a good one too, and very much an 18+ movie!

Have a great day!

Mighty M said...

Those balloons have a nice backside indeed. :)

Sarah Halstead said...

Great Picture!

Joy Taylor said...

very tastefully done

Bunch of Barrons said...

Great shot! :) Love the color!

Ave said...

Wow! That's a really great picture!
Thanks for stopping by!

Chamorrita Babe said...

HAHAHA, I LOVE the title of your post! LOL. I must say, I was so startled when I first read about this week's theme at Iheartfaces! I wasn't sure if I was going to enter or not, it seemed unusual at first, but everyone is doing a good job at keeping it fun and tasteful. :) Good job with your entry! Love the touch of color with the balloons!

Btw, thanks for the anniv. greeting on my page. Much aloha from Hawaii! :)

Angie - The Arthur Clan said...

Awesome entry Becky!! (And if I had a teeny-tiny hiney like hers, I'd have no problems at all of someone posting a photo of it online. Unfortunately, you know what mine looks like from that horror of a photo that Drew posted last April Fool's Day.) Hee!

P.S. I saw on Drew's blog that you were wondering how many terms for "tooshie" that we could come up with. You need to go to Briana's "Wake Up Juliet" blog. She listed a ton of them in hers. It was so funny reading them all!

Crystal Rae said...

Love the balloons in the tooshie shot. Great tooshie shot. :P

Lyndsey said...

Oh my gosh this is fantastic!!!!! She is working those jeans! And I LOVE the balloons and the colors and sharpness of your photo. It is just a great shot, I really love it, this could be a winner!

Hmmm, well wierdly enough. Every picture I take of my dog turns out to be her from behind. Everytime I attempt to take a picture, she turns around. LOL

Beverly said...

such a colorful photo, love the balloons

puna said...

Awwww this is cute and tastefully done. I was nervous too! As it turns out, I do take a lot of tooshie photos. Perhaps you can help me decide which one to enter today?

Tara. said...

That's so great! I love the colors of the balloons!
Thanks for the sweet comments on my picture this week. :)

Ms Bibi said...

No I don't take pictures of behinds often unless the mental pictures in my mind count. Then yes, I do.

Love your picture.

JamericanSpice said...

Quite a good tush photo.

I should try doing this sometimes. A different angle is always interesting.

Unknown Mami said...

Booty shot!!!

Caroline said...

Great fun capture :D

Dot O said...

Great shot. Hope your mom survived it's posting. No, I haven't taken many toosh shots. I think two maybe, but the other one didn't qualify.

Yours is perfect, and cute, and colorful. Your mom really should be happy for you!!!

keli.h said...

Love it!! Love the balloons, and the tooshie is very tastefully done. I take behind pictures a lot - but I'm not actually *trying* to get pictures of the toosh, lol.

Have a great day!!

SillyHille said...

I love balloons, and tooshies, and your pic!

Marice said...

Some call me Neesie. said...

Tell your Mom I said to relax, this photo is BEAUTIFUL - and actually very tasteful. Not that there's anything wrong with the bum, or tooshie, or whatever you call it. In fact, I think they're awfully cute on the little ones, as they toddle away from you... Yeah, I take those pictures - gotta explore it all!

Marie said...

No but that was a great shot. :)

Erica Hami said...

I LOVE this shot!

Emily Burnette said...

Thanks for your kind comment :) It was a fun day and we were laughing REALLY hard...especially after the tumble!!
I love your blog and the way you capture simple moments that make life memorable! I'll definitely visit again :)

Very clever. Love this photo. BTW, thanks for stopping by my blog.

**Nicole** said...

What a cool picture! It would have been great for the baloon theme a few weeks back if that had been baloons and tooshies, LOL! :)

and no, I don't take pictures of behinds often! That's why I entered the picture I did...it's on of the only ones I have :D Haha! Thanks for the comment!

Mary said...
