An experiment in texture...

So this week's iheartfaces contest is texture. I had to get help from my sweetie with the texture technique on Photoshop. But I am proud to say the picture is mine. We were out on a hike down by the San Pedro Riparian Reserve and Karyn asked me to help her take some silhouettes. So I picked up the camera and snapped a few. This one turned out to be the most 'fun' pic of the day.

This photo is called "Keep on Trucking"



The boy was a sport, he took some time out of digging with a stick to momentarily drive up his mommy's tummy. When I say momentary, it truly was. Fortunately, due to many hours on the ol' shooting range at the University of Michigan, I am very practiced at just pulling the trigger when things 'feel' right. Like Bruce Lee says in Enter the Dragon. "Don't think. Feeeeeeel." He also says of his fist, "I do not hit, It hits."

So with that in mind, or no-mind, please enjoy this entry and others at iheartfaces.blogspot.com, use Mr Linky, below.
