I Heart Faces – Contemplative

nathan vintage

Wish I hadn’t taken this in direct sunlight, but I do like the expression on my son’s face.  What’s better to contemplate than the wonder of a frog?  Whether it be worms, frogs or bugs…if my guy sees one, he is enthralled.  Now, if only I could get him as excited about writing! :)


This week is all about being contemplative.  I’m sure there will be many different takes on this theme.  Go check it out at I ♥ Faces!

  • Elaine at Matters of the Heart) - Oh I love this. I am sure this is the kind of stuff that is in my future.ReplyCancel

  • Michelle Johnson - I think that's a fabulous picture for being in direct sunlight! It just adds to the mood and highlights that frog perfectly! I'm kind of glad I have girls because I don't think I could handle all the frog-touching and bugs and stuff! 😉

    Thank you for your comment on my picture! I think the trick for good pictures is catching them when they don't know you're there! Then they can't glare at you!

  • Me - Hi. I have a question for you. I looked at your photo template for blogger tutorial in I heart faces. I uploaded the photoblog II blog, but by current pictures in previous posts are still small. Also, when I try to change the height/width in html the pictures are enlarged but they are fuzzy. I also use picasa to upload pics directly to my blog – but I can't seem to figure out how to make the pics larger in the past? can you help?? Thanks so much! http://www.bestrongclamgrateful.blogspot.comReplyCancel
