photo challenge: no faces.

This challenge was a LOT easier. Number one because it wasn't pictures of me. And number two...because I already had these photos. This past week is a blur...so I had to use photos I had already.
This first photo is of my dear friend's daughter, Emily.
She is one of the most creative young ladies I know. She's always making something...drawing, sewing, sculpting...she is an artist through and through.
My boys. Running on Ocean Beach in San Francisco over the summer. What? You can't tell it's summer? That's the city for ya...COLD. And WINDY. And COLD.
But..leave it to my boys to insist on getting their feet in salt water...
Seth. My oldest. My first born. Talented musician.
He plays bass, trumpet and french horn. He's a natural...
Ian. My baby. My tender hearted, animal loving, sweet boy.

This kid can figure out how anything works. He's a fixer...a problem-solver...it amazes me.

Last but definitely not least...Chris...my sweet husband. Also a musician and a fixer.
This photo shows a lot about him...music, tools, electronics, a bit of sawdust on his cap. Yep. That's my hubby!
What fun this 4-week challenge was. I'm sad that it's over. It's really been enlightening...and a great learning experience as far as my photography goes. Thank you to the ladies in charge....Camilla at bloom and Carolyn at Rose Notes. Can't wait to see what's next...(hint hint!)
Thank you, too, to all of the others who participated...it's been a pleasure to meet all of you and to get a peek into your lives. xo
And in case you missed it...here's a link to part two of this week's photo challenge...self-portrait.

I think the pictures we cherish the most are those that capture our loved ones as they are being. And you did a wonderful job capturing your family.

And I think you are beautiful - inside and out.

I really like how you depicted you family in the moment doing what they love, it shows, and we certainly get a feel for it.
You are a very good photographer.
I am so glad you joined, it's been a pleasure getting to know you a little bit more and getting a peek of your life.

When I see your photos, I see how much you love people. These are great.. the sawdust on your hubby's cap made me laugh... he and Cory would get along well.

I will miss you, too. You already showed your self-pic. The icon tells a lot.
In this super busy time of the year you have done a great job with the assignments.
You and your family are very interesting people. Music and tinkering, how great is that!
I lived for years in the Bay area. You made me miss it very much.
