Shoot Me NowPhotographer’s Choice!

Photographer’s Choice!
Published on Thursday, October 30, 2014 by

This month’s A ‘Lilhoohaa photo challenge was Photographer’s Choice. When I heard this, my first thought was “Faces.” Ugh. I don’t know why I chose that. NO ONE wants to have a picture of their face. At least no one that I know.

Which worked with the whole “challenge” thing. So I went with it!

 1.  Our area is filled with mermaids that were painted by various artists.  This one has seen better days, but somehow I think she and the bird see eye to eye.  Some of the mermaids have had faces painted on them, but many remain “faceless” like this one.

2.  How can you not love our deer in Corolla.  Just look at that sweet face!

3.  My daughter is going to be a cosplay Cheshire Cat for her last trick-or-treating Halloween.  I didn’t think her wig would arrive on time from China.  But it did!

4.  Out of everyone I am acquainted with, I knew that THIS person would agree to me taking a true picture of her face.  Gotta love her!

5.  And now, my FAVORITE.  This was taken a day after the full moon.  The clouds were amazing.  I was stunned to see a jack-o-lantern face form across the moon.  Perfect for Halloween!

    Katherine, I think you did a great job with this theme. VERY clever with capturing photographs of FACES.

    “How can you not love our deer in Corolla. Just look at that sweet face!”

    I love deer, so that one really touched me. Deer have THE most sweetest faces.

    Also, the one of the young lady through the bicycle spokes is way cool. I work with a girl who is a hairstylist and has her hair colored exactly like the wig on your daughter.

    And the shot of the moon?


    *three cheers*

    AMAZING capture!!!!!!!


  • I love the moon and the deer. Those two are my favs.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

    I think Faces was a great choice! In this age of “selfies,” I think #4 is definitely selfie-worthy. The deer is so sweet…hope she eludes those hunters! And I do see a jack-o-lantern in the moon….I also see (sort of) a bat. Great selection!

  • That Jack o’ Lantern moon is a stunner. Wow. Nice group of pics.

  • I always love faces images!

    Very cool that you decided to theme your shots even for this month. The portrait through the bicycle spokes is very well composed and my favorite of this set.

  • All great shots, but the moon was amazing, and indeed, perfect for Halloween. Hope your daughter enjoyed her trick or treating!

  • That moon shot is awesome! That is way too cool and what a find. And an interesting theme you opted for this month … faces can be hard, that’s for sure. But you captured them well!

    I so could not imagine every being able to plan and put together a portfolio of faces like this. Great job! Each is unique – not just in terms of who (or what) you’re photographing, but also in terms of the composition and lighting. So glad your photographer’s choice was “faces”.
