Week 2: Photo Challenge - "Best Face Photo"

Here is my entry for this week, it is one of my favorite close-up face shots I have taken in the last couple of months. Here is a good picture of mine of our friends little boy when we visited them in Santa Barbara in December. I miss-read the rules and they could only be from December or January, so I had to change it up! Sorry for the mix-up and hopefully I will be able to use the previous photo later in the year. Oh well, here is to more great pictures this year and at I Heart Faces! Go to I Heart Faces to check out more and see there new look! Happy Birthday!

365

I see a lot of blogs doing the 365 pictures a day, and I think it would be so cool! I think it is a great goal, and even if I don't do it everyday then I still have a great grouping of my year, I think. Anyone have any ides on if this is good or bad? Hopefully I will have great improvement over the year!
