[iheartfaces: O So Silly.]

My hubby voted for this one ... 

You know - I don't know about the other photographers, but I sometimes find these themes really tricky.  The theme this week is "O So Silly".  So I asked him ... "this one, or this one ... or maybe this one?"

He chose this one ... "It's the silliest.  By far."

Now he's not a photographer ... he's not looking for clarity or perception.   He wasn't looking for depth of field or amount of contrast.

He just thought it was silly.

So ... here's my entry.  Meet Eli.  The fun-nest, craziest, bravest little guy I know *grin*.

I couldn't set this shot up ... this was a "get-it-NOW" kind of a moment ... And that cricket?  He was completely unharmed and happily went on his merry way after Eli's mom almost had a heart attack *grin*.

Thank you so much to all of you who leave comments ... I read them all :-).  


  1. Oh my word! I have two boys myself and find this hilarious! Why do boys do this sort of thing!? LOL! Great in-the-moment shot Tawn. This one will definitely make the memory books! :)

  2. Oh my! I love this (and I have an Eli just like that-- he once ate an ant, just for fun!).

  3. Such a great picture...I love the silliness and lack of fear in boys...I have two boys myself! Mind you my daughter is just as silly and brave!!!

  4. Wow. Just wow. I laughed out loud and then cringed as only a mommy can. LOL

  5. Oh my goodness! No one else will have a photo that silly! I love it (but I am now a little afraid of what tricks my 1 yr old little boy may pull down the road!)

  6. eeks!! but so cute! Only a boy! :)

  7. If my boys ever did that I think I'd die! Boys are so gross! And yet we love them with all our hearts! Haha!
    He is a cutie for sure. I bet his future wife will have her hands full!
    Great shot!
