I heart faces Best of 2012

Photo Challenge Submission Photobucket

I don't know if I told you yet. 
Last year was hard.  
2012. 
I will never forget it. 

There were lots of tears. 
More than I thought humanly possible. 
I am thankful for this new year. 
For this new chance. 

I heart faces is my favorite photography resource. 
For the last five years I heart faces has been a source of inspiration and encouragement.
 This week is Best Face challenge. 
You should enter. 
Come over and look around at all the faces. 

Thank you for being a part of my life. 
You are my favorite photographers. 
Thank you for sharing your smiles when I couldn't find my own. 


 Love always, Becky

Well.. I know we both had our ups and downs, but as far as photography goes, you had an AMAZING year. You have grown SO much, and I am so proud of you! This is a beautiful shot; so full of raw, real emotion. You are the master of "real". xoxox...

2012 really had me worry about the human condition, whether we'll survive as a species. But we persevere!

Mari said...

Awww - that picture is a real heart breaker. 2012 wasn't the best year for me either. I hope we all have a better 2013!

Oh, this makes me want to cry, too! She's so beautiful, and I just want to hug her and tell her it will be okay. Beautiful, emotional capture, my Friend!

Dita said...

I just want to hug her and kiss her all over and wipe those tears from her face and tell beautiful and smart and funny and important she is....

Reminds me that I should do the same for me...every.single.day.
2012 certainly wasn't our best ever year here either.

And as for you? Well, YOU know how much I value your unparalleled friendship...and how important you are to me...but I don't think I told yet today....so, consider yourself hugged and told the same thing today and everyday....DITTO times a bizillion.

Becky, I'm sorry that you had a difficult year. I wish I had sent you more smiles, more hugs and more friendship. You are a very inspiring, kind person whom I appreciate and thank God for. This year is going to be better, every single day because you are in this world and remind us all to celebrate the sheer beauty of people who might shed tears, but then help someone else to smile and have hope.
