I ♥ Faces - "Contemplative" and "Pets"



This week over at I Faces the photo challenges are "Contemplative" & "Pets". I'm going to enter both with the photos below. If you'd like to enter a photo you only have until 12:00 Central time today to do so. Like to see more photos? Click on the icon above!

First up is my contemplative photo. I took this photo on the first day of school this year. Sam didn't realize that I had the camera focused on him while he was getting himself together after he got out of the car. I love the deep contemplative look on his face. I really wish I knew what he was thinking at that moment in time.

First day of 4th grade

The second photo is from a trip to the Ft Worth Zoo this past summer. It's of a lizard but I can't for the life of me remember what lizard he is. I'm sure someone here visiting might know and if you do please let me know in the comments. I do know that I really do love the colors on him!

I love both pics. The contemplative look on Sam's face is priceless. It surely does make you want to know what was going on in that head of his.

The pic of the lizard is so colorful. I love it! I love the detail you captured.

I love catching the kids/teens even adults when they don't know their picture is being taken....true candids. I agree with you..... love that picture.

Wow, the pet picture is awesome.... that green really pops. Love it.

Sam's look reminds me of the freshman I see on the first day of high school... that sort of apprehensive, excited, reluctant, anxious series of feelings all rolled in with the "it sure is early" saunter.
