Thematic Photographic #128

Carmi, over at Written, Inc hosts a weekly "Thematic Photographic" in which he presents a theme, then asks viewers to share photos related to the theme. I used to be a regular participant in this activity, back when I blogged a LOT...but lately, I've been sucked into the Facebook world and neglect my blog a bit too much. Now, mind you, I DO read others' blogs, so I know what's going on. Hence, I am presenting my submission to Thematic Photographic this time around.

Because the theme this time is 'Favorite Photo of the Year', it's going to go on for 3 weeks...and Carmi asked that we show as many of our favorites during this time.

For now, I'll start with my most recent favorite, which I shot at a photo session just last week:

I was trying to set the shot up this way...and my lovely little model was being silly, and I just clicked! Her face is priceless (and it shows her true personality!) Her brother is behind her, being the slightly protective, slightly annoyed, big brother! And mom and dad in the background. When I showed this photo to my client, she said it was a great representation of their family!

I have another favorite to share:



This was over the summer...I just got a new zoom lens and was playing at the pool. My kids didn't have a clue I was shooting them. To me, this picture represents the summertime PERFECTLY...because the colors are so bright and vivid, the water seems so cool, refreshing, and inviting (which, for the record, it was NOT - the water temp was well over 90°!), and my daughter's face says it all!

Wonderful pictures! To me, my favorite photos are those that aren't staged. So much personality and life is seen in them :)

Thanks for sharing these, perfect favorites! There are so many captions that could go with the first one....she is just bubbling with happiness, isn't she!

I like the pool shot. It captures "bliss." :)

One word comes to mind - honest. Not posed, just letting their personality shine though. Nice shots!

I must admit I have been relying on FB to keep in touch with people as I have had so little time to spare. It is nowhere near as satisfying though!

Great captures :)
