Its Monday! And that means its time to participate in the weekly challenge over at I Heart Faces! Be sure to head on over and check out some of the fabulous entries!
The theme this week is "Play".
Well, chances are, if ya got a kid or two around your house, you have about a billion photos of your children playing dress up, legos, musical instruments, sports, swinging, or just having fun in the sprinklers. And since I have two kids, that means I must have two billion photos.
But instead of looking back through my archives to just plop any old picture in this post, I decided to get my camera out today with renewed interest. After speaking with some local photographers in my area this past Saturday at the I Heart Faces Photowalk, I've come to the conclusion that I don't take enough pictures. And I'm not going to improve my photography technique if I don't give myself more opportunity to learn.
So, I followed my kids around this afternoon while they played. I photographed Jayce on his favorite swing, Jaina practicing her piano, and the kids together on the climbing wall.
But this capture was my favorite:
It also could be alternately entitled "I Heart Faces: Torture Small Animal With Promise of Treat" but I'm pretty sure that won't ever be a weekly challenge theme.
