I heart faces: dramatic black and white

Week 13's Photo Challenge is Dramatic Black and White, where I heart faces asked for pictures that are dramatic, sensational and/or moody in the way they are presented.

Instantly, this picture of my son Kyan, popped into my head.

I heart faces: angles

I am new to the I heart faces scene, this being the first photograph that I have ever entered in their weekly challenges! I am excited that it seemed to be something that I felt like I do quite often:

For this week's photo challenge, we are focusing on unusual angles. Stand higher than your subject, lay on the ground, move to the side, tilt your camera while you are what you need to do to give your photo a uniqueness of it's own. A unique angle is what this week is all about.

I will say that it is rare that you will find me holding my camera straight on the subject, I almost always have it turned some crazy way!

The picture above is of my two children, Kyan and Lola! I think that I captured their "Twilight" moment without even realizing it! The wildflowers that they are laying in were growing on the side of the road and were absolutely stunning. We pulled over, pulled out the camera and started playing! I got them to lay in them for all of about 30 seconds, but that is all I needed to get this shot!
