Well, I guess I am b.o.r.i.n.g!

This week at I Heart Faces they want to see some angles.

I don’t really take many angled pictures.

I am pretty much a straight on shooter.

I couldn’t miss an I Heart Faces challenge though,

so, I scooted down towards the ground this morning

while I was shooting my friend Tiffany’s adorable little girl.

This is about as wild and crazy with angles as I get.

Whoopsy Daisy…

atiffany 015Here are some fun things for you to do this week when you are in

An Elevator
1) When there's only one other person in the elevator, tap them on the shoulder and then pretend it wasn't you.
2) Push the buttons and pretend they give you a shock. Smile, and go back for more.
3) Call the Psychic Hotline from your cell phone and ask if they know what floor your on.
4) Bring a camera and take pictures of everyone in the elevator.
5) Move your desk into the elevator and whenever anyone gets on, ask if they have an appointment.
6) Lay down the twister mat and ask people if they would like to play.
7) Leave a box in the corner, and when someone gets on, ask them if they can hear ticking.
8) Pretend you are a flight attendant and review emergency procedures and exits with the passengers.
9) When the doors close, announce to the others, "It's okay, don't panic, they open again!"
10) Grimace painfully while smacking your forehead and muttering, "Shut up, all of you, just shut up!"
11) Crack open your briefcase or purse, and while peering inside, ask, "Got enough air in there?"
12) Stand silently and motionless in the corner, facing the wall, without getting off.
13) Wear a puppet on your hand and use it to talk to the other passengers.
14) Listen to the elevator walls with your stethoscope.
15) Draw a little square on the floor with chalk and announce to the other passengers, "This is MY personal space!"

Hope your week is delightful!

4 Lettre Words said...

Still so sweet!

Lisa said...

WHAT A CUTIE PIE!!! Okay were do you get these friends with such SWEET looking, well dressed kids! LOVE THIS PICTURE!!!

If I take pictures at an angle it is usually by mistake...I have NO!!! Idea what I am doing with this camera AT ALL!

Maybe I should check out I heart faces and learn something...maybe then I wouldn't be boring.

Just for the record...I don't think your boring at all:)

xoxo, lisa

Jenny said...

LOL, that was hilarious.

Your photo is gorgeous :)

Mighty M said...

That picture is so cute! She is either trying very hard to keep a hold on the balloons or she is saying "finish up already lady!". :)

Love that joke - always cracks me up!!

Skeller said...

there is NOTHING boring 'bout this photo. It's perfect. And beautiful. I bet it's gorgeous in color, but I love that you've made it simple & stunning in b/w.

Yelena R. said...

Who are you kidding? That is an absolutely gorgeous picture! It doesn't matter what angle it's at! p.s Have I ever told you that you are one of the funniest people I know? :) Have a great week!

Muthering Heights said...

The little girl in you photo is SO CUTE!!!!! She reminds me of my younger daughter...she too has a VERY serious face. :)

christy rose said...

It is an awesome shot. I say you get down toward the ground more often! :)

Deborah (Teach Preschool) said...

Hahahahaha! I would never be brave enough to do any of those things LOL!

Trudy said...

That is a great picture! What a beautiful little girl.

I wish I were brave enough to try a few of those elevator tricks, just to see what type of reaction I would get! Too funny.

Drew said...

You have access to the sweetest kids. I love how this little girl has happy umbrellas yet she looks a bit ticked to be holding them.

Hey, try out some of those elevator tricks and let me know how it goes. :)

Amy said...

Boring?! Says who?! ;)

I love how the balloons and her dress really pop.

Spencer L Casey said...

Your photographs are anything but boring. But I know you can show more of an angle than that. You don't need to though. I don't know that I would change anything about your work. It's terrific.

Cheers,

SLC

Busy Bee Suz said...

That photo is AMAZING. Can you come here and take some of Lo and Linds???? Pleaseeeeeee?
I won't make you get into an elevator. Promise.

cute jokes.
ps. I don't like elevators. You know they are just a speed pass to the devil. Right? right.

Kelly said...

I love that picture!

Linds said...

I'm a straight shooter too! I am really going to have to dig for something this week! And I love your elevator ideas! ha!

Or my husband's favorite:

16) Fart upon exiting.

Yes, I can't take him anywhere!

Colleen said...

This is an adorable picture : ) I love it!!!!! I'm kind of boring myself : )

lifebythecreek said...

Oh dear lawd... I think I might just up and die right here and now! First of all, that girl's expression is totally priceless! It's like "Who took the rest of my balloons??" or "I didn't wanna go to no stupid birthday party ANYWAY!!!" LOVE it! And then the elevator jokes... those WERE jokes, right? You don't really DO those things on an elevator, do you? It makes me think of the old show "Candid Camera"...

McMom said...

I'd hardly call that boring. I love it! The balloons are a great touch.

Brooke said...

It's a beautiful picture!

Jan said...

WOW!! Love your entry!! The balloons COMPLETE it!! Love that cute little expression too!!

And that little bit about what to do in an elevator? Totally cracked me up!! We ride in elevators every day and I can just imagine the look on the faces of the other passengers if I start doing any one of those! =D

Norah said...

A photo of that precious little girl could never be boring, angle or no angle!

Puna said...

I love it! And it's a perfect angle!

Puna said...

And I'm tempted to do some of those things you suggested, I'm afraid of getting committed:)

Briana said...

What a sweet little girl :) Great shot!

American in Norway said...

Oooo. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this... love the ANGLE...the texture... the precious little girl & the balloons... Perfect shot. : )

BlondeShot Creative said...

I love how the child is elevated and you get that nice slight angle from below here. The tones are beautiful, and its an all around great shot. And what is this list of things to do in an elevator? It's awesome!

Carrie said...

gee...if that's boring...what am I? haha! THat's an awesome angle! I love the height of the building behind her, it's perfect...what a cutie! Great shot! Love your elevator tips! luckily I'm not on an elevator much, but will remember these, LOL! ;)

TidyMom said...

not boring at ALL! What a sweet picture!! love the balloons too!

Dana-from chaos to Grace said...

HOLY KEY-RAP!!! GIRL! I have to say, this is my favorite so far! If I were the judge this week, this would be THE photo! I love so many things about it: the angle, the rule of thirds you used, the balloons that are higher and opposite the subject (this leads the eye through the photograph).....girl, this photo is AWESOME!

WOW. Girl, you DID it!

Becca said...

Ok she seriously could not be any cuter! What an adorable little girl - and great picture too my friend!

Adeena said...

Cute shot!

And the elevator list is hilarious! :D

mom2nji said...

Adorable pic! I love her expression.

Tracey said...

Okay first off... That picture is just beautiful! I mean truly amazing! I absolutely love it! If I was her mom, I would have that blown up and hanging on the wall in my home.

Second... I laughed my butt in half reading that elevator list. I might have to remember a couple of those. :0)

Ocean Girl said...

She looks like she's not sitting on anything. With a little more angle, she could look like she's flying!:)

In the elevator was when Jerry McGuire learned the sign "You complete me". So did the rest of the world.

Dianne said...

the elevator list kills!! :)

the photo is amazing, absolutely beautiful

Allie said...

Absolutely adorable! Great capture!

Terrano Photography said...

I'm so sharing this LOL

Lynn said...

Beautiful picture! Without the angle you might not have caught the texture of the wood she is on. Kudos to you for trying something a little different. I love it.

Jana said...

I love your picture, very cute. Also love your idea of things to do on an elevator, I may need to use some of those to break a few "social norms" for my psychology class..

jr said...

this is a great shot...congratulations on such a sweet photo!

April said...

In my opinion...you nailed it!

photowannabe said...

Boring...Never....
Becky, this is your all time best photo. Of course I say that for each one you post....
I love the angle of this one. It really tells a story.

The Blonde Duck said...

Kyla said...

Your photo is just ADORABLE! What a cutie pie.

lol @ the elevator list. Although I'd have done every one of these as a teenager, I'm MUCH more reserved now that I'm getting closer to 40. I wonder why? Maybe I need to revert back . . . lol.

Tricia Nugen said...

I love this photo! Great JOB!

T Lee said...

thanks for stopping by and for your comment!! I could flip around on the computer, but i feel i would waste more time than use it wisely. i am not a read it and do it person. i am more of a show me and do it person...which is why I just want to take a class. somehow the pressure of projects and stuff helps me!! i guess i am not the best self motivator...i need a kick in the behind! my little boy keeps me pretty busy and then there is the husband, the two teens and the 3 pets and the house....but SOON, SOON i tell you...i am gonna take that class!!

the aunt who always has gum said...

Excellent photo! Love the b/w processing and everything just points your eye to her adorable face.
And awesome elevator advice - some of them gave me quite a chuckle this morning! :)

Melinda said...

Great job with the photo, my friend!! I love not only the angle but the composition is spectacular as well!!

Jessie said...

Great shot! So many angles. Nice job!

Ruthanne said...

That is a lovely picture! Especially in B&W. Great job!

Julie Rivera Photography said...

Simple, poetic, clean, and angled. I think you nailed it, despite your protestations to the contrary. :)

Lyndsey said...

I always have to check out your photo each week! ;) She is a beauty, the dress is just fantastic, it looks so classic. The balloons and the background add so much to this photo! Nicely done.

Run DMT said...

I think this angle shot is just perfect! I love the B&W effect too.

parentingBYdummies said...

Guess I'm boring too 'cause I like that shot. And, not even sure what they mean by angles. Like, of the lens? In the background? What the what? I should check out i heart faces; looks fun.

Michelle Pixie said...

First off she is an absolute baby doll! Beautiful Capture!!

Second I love LOVE the elevator ideas and I may just do a few of them the next time I am on a little ride! Hehehehehehe ;-)

Christal said...

Trust me, Becky... you could never be boring!! :)

Erin @ Puddin' Sugar said...

Ha! Glad I'm not the only Dingbat to misread the angles/angels. Great pic, that little girl is just too stinkin' precious!!

Scraps said...

This photo is amazing! Black and white makes images so much more meaningful, doncha think?

Amy said...

What a great photo. I love it. I think I would be committed if I did any of those things. :0) At least I would get some long overdue sleep.

The Drama Mama said...

I love your picture. Even if it's not all angley and such. I think I might try your elevator tricks this week, once I find an elevator to ride in...too funny!

Chennifer said...

Beautiful picture! and I love her face - adorable!
