I ♥ Faces Photography Contest - Amateur

This is the first time I am entering into the I ♥ Faces contest. I've been wanting to for a while now, but always seem to forget about the deadline until Tuesday night and then never have enough time to get a picture found and post it before the contest is closed. However, this time I am prepared!
This week's contest is the Blurb Book Photo Contest. Basically, you pick the best photo you have taken of a face and enter it in either the professional or amateur contest. I'm still learning (and I definitely don't charge money for my photos) so I fall into the amateur category. :-)
Since learning of this contest, I have looked through some of my old pictures and have been taking new pictures and always come back to this picture of my son, Austin. It was taken with our old Sony point and shoot camera (even though I have a great Cannon Rebel that I now use). I don't know if it's the best picture I've ever taken, but I'm drawn to it for some reason!
(Can't seem to figure out how to get it bigger on the blog page, but click for a better view!)


Austin was basically just playing in the rain behind our house and I was taking pictures while trying to stay dry. He looked up and I snapped and somehow I got a great picture! Plus, I really miss those curls that he used to have that are all cut off now.
To see other great pictures, head on over to http://www.iheartfaces.blogspot.com/.



I am submitting this photo into the http://www.iheartfaces.com/ Blurb book photo contest. If chosen, I grant I ♥ Faces permission to use my photo in a printed version of a book for commercial use and possibly advertising of a photo book on both the Blurb and I ♥ Faces web sites.
