Thursday Thirteen Faces on the Fourth

1.

I enjoy catching faces when the subject is unaware -- I think a part of them I do not notice w/ my eye, is picked up w/ my lens..... I hope they like themselves as well ---because to me they are beautiful... as people I know and care about

So many pensive expressions! I always think of the 4th as a day of wonder.

Unaware photos definitely bring out a side you don't get when the subject is actively posing - or even just aware that their photo is being taken. Great photos!

Thanks for sharing.

Deanna @ Collectors Quest said...

The last one is my favorite -- something about the intensity of the eyes over the cup... Very cool.

Carleen said...

Capturing people when they don't know you're even looking at them makes some of the best photos ever. Great shots!

Shelley Munro said...

What a great series of portraits!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

I'm with Alice. Did you guys have big fireworks of the illegal variety that had so many people worried?

Oh, I hope it was something that trivial... no one should worry on the Fourth.

And I agree about this stealth method of taking pictures. I do it, too!
