My Town Shoot Out - Faces/Smiles

This week's shoot out theme is courtesy of Sarah of Cottage Garden Studios. "I am really thrilled to offer up the theme this week "Faces and Smiles". I am a Mom of five, artist and teacher. Running my own preschool... I get lots of opportunities to shoot happy faces. I have discovered that I have a passion for catching faces when folks are not looking, fun, candid shots. I live in North Idaho, Coeur d Alene. It is a tourist area... we have a wonderful lake for summer fun and winter skiing is just a short drive away. With all of the summer fun here, I get lots of wonderful chances for people shots. I hope that you have some fun with this one!! I can't wait to see all of the faces from your town! Let Fly with the smiling faces."
I encourage you to go and see everyone's contributions here!

I Still have no internet connecion to the computer with all of my photos, so you are getting whatever I can gather on line.

Happy Weekend All!

My wife being red headed and freckled, I have a definite soft spot for freckles. But that top smile is really something special.

Hello, friend. I have not disappeared. I got a virus on my computer and had to take it in for repair. I am back up and running. It was good to hear from you. I will post this week, and might even be up to a whatzit. I enjoyed your post.

My son's best friend is very red head and freckled.

I like the younger boy, he looks like one of my students who is a great skier. Same eyes, and curly hair. Do you have relatives in New Zealand?

Sarah said...

Fox is my only boy..poor kiddo out of five..he holds his own. He is wickedly smart and has a wonderful sense of humor. He is something that is for sure. Thanks for the comments hon, Sarah
