I Heart Enjoying Life

Hey Y’all. This is my precious grandson, Kole, at Wrightsville Beach last month. His parents brought him home from Seattle, for their first visit back, since they moved last August.

He discovered a stick in the water, and his reaction reminds me that the world is still a fabulous, mind-blowing place! Through the eyes of a two-year old, we can really learn to enjoy life.

This week’s theme at I Heart Faces is “Enjoying Life.” I hope all of you are doing just that on this fine Independence Day!

I Heart Faces is a photography sharing forum that focuses on the art of capturing faces and their various emotions. Each week, people from across the world enter their favorite face photos.

I Heart Hands on a Cruise

 

 

This week’s Photo Challenge on I Heart Faces is “Raise Your Hands.” It is not required to have a face in this week’s challenge.

I found that I had so many photos to choose from. Apparently, I like taking pictures of hands. I think they tell a story that is often hidden on a face. I snap a lot of candid, random shots of strangers. This is one I took a few years ago, when my husband took me on my first cruise for my 50th birthday.

We were enjoying our morning coffee out on our “private” balcony. But, as you know if you’ve ever been on a cruise, there is never any real privacy. All you have to do is peek around the partition and you can see and hear what your fellow cruisers are doing!

Last Night’s Full Moon

Last night we went outside to take pictures of the huge “Super Moon.” My husband set up the tripod for me and I took about a dozen shots before it had gotten so far up into the sky that it was no longer “huge.”

This photo was the first one I took, and this is “straight out of the camera”. I took it before he had the tripod set up for me, and this was the automatic setting with a flash, which I was sure would not turn out.

Funny thing is, it’s the best shot I got. I guess I still have a lot to learn about photography. And that’s why it’s such a challenge, so engrossing and so much fun, y’all!
