You know that place with the weekly photo contest?
That place that has totally inspired me to be creative with a camera?
That place that helped me find more joy in my life?
That incredible, wonderful, fantastical place-
I Heart Faces. Well that place is driving me crazy this weekend.
They want to see our very best face from 2010.
Are they flippin’ kidding me?
How do you pick a very best?
I have no idea.
Absolutely no idea.
I am so thankful that over this last year I have actively shot so many spectacular faces.
Round faces. Baby faces.
Brown faces. Wrinkly faces.
Funny faces. Lovely faces.
Faces. Faces. Faces.
In each face I shoot I see beauty.
To be honest, I could care less about perfect eyebrow arches.
Creamy, dreamy skin?
Eh, it’s ok.
But what really floats my boat is a smile.
Or even better than that- it’s love.
When I look at a picture and I see love,
well that just about makes me die of happiness.
It is better than a new Mercedes Benz.
It is better than a paycheck with lots of 00000’s : )
It is better than almost anything I can imagine.
This year, 2011, when you shoot,
Look for Love.
It is even better than all the perfect features on the most extraordinary model in the world.
Kaishon picked for me because I had no idea what to pick.
Thank you, I Heart Faces, for helping me find a creative outlet that lets me see beauty in each person I encounter.
Can’t wait to see yours.
What are you waiting for?
