This week’s theme on the I Heart Faces photography challenge is yellow. I truly love yellow – I think it’s my favourite colour. I wanted to post this picture so I could play along. I’ve been following I Heart Faces forever, but this is my first submission — yay!

  1. IHF Challenge: Best of Summer 2011 When I saw that this week’s theme on the I Heart Faces photography challenge was “your best picture of Summer 2011″ I knew exactly which picture I would submit. I must admit, I took a lot (no, really? A LOT!) of pictures that I truly adore this summer, but this...

  3. IHF Weekly Challenge: From a distance I had so much fun with the I Heart Faces weekly photo challenge the first time I played that I wanted to try again.

  4. Guess whose photo is on the cover of the local Yellow Pages directory? So this is a fun story. Back in the fall, I was contacted through Flickr about using one of my photos of Watson’s Mill in Manotick. It’s one of my favourite photos, but as I’ve assigned my licensing rights to Getty Images, I can’t license it privately. I explained that...

First I want to tell you how much I love this shot…you have caught it at just the right split second and the framing is erfect too! Love it…kids and puddles…there are few things better…I used to let my guys go in their wellies and diapers and stomp to their hearts content!

The other thing that I wanted to let you know is the funny way of the Web…I found your blog here by searching for Andrew Haydon Park…we (my husband, one of my daughters, her beau, their almost 8 month old baby and I – we are an extended family!) are on the verge of renting a place in Crystal Beach…right near this Andrew Haydon park…my husband and I had walked around a bit of it after meeting with the house owner a few days ago…one of my 365 shots was of one of the overly friendly park inhabitants…

So your blog post about the park came up on a Google search for Andrew Haydon Park (5th on the list – pretty good!)…I was wandering around your blog – reading about TtV shots…I have a Roliflex and have been wanting to try this for a while now…your tutorials are great, btw…then I wandered over to your Flickr…and realized that we are in a few of the same groups…I had even commented on one of your pictures a while back! – the one about the dog appearing to be eating your Dad’s face…

It is funny how in this huge, seemingly limitless WWW, there are times when the world seems actually small…that you can bump into an almost neighbour!

Love this! The reflection is perfect!

Hmmm…I didn’t mean for my comment above to be an anonymous one!
It must have lost my info when I mis-read the picture of the words that show I am human and not a bot…

Oh my gosh! I LOVE this one! It makes me want to run out and splash a puddle myself! It’s so sharp and the timing & composition are perfect! Nice work!
