The theme at I Heart Faces this week is Bright and Vivid. Bight and Vivid could be interpreted in several ways and I almost went a non-traditional with my choice, but when I saw this picture in my files I knew I had to use it…

Call me crazy, but I’m pretty sure a tongue shouldn’t be green, let alone that bright of a green. The back story here is that the boys had been trying to figure out for months what the bright green slushy looking drink was on the Sonic signs. We’d tried various drinks and combinations but hadn’t nailed it until this day. (For those just dying to have a bright green tongue too, the combo is orange slush with a little bit of blue coconut added to it.)

    Cindy - That sure is bright! It reminds me of the paint can bubble gum that was around in the 90’s that turned kids tongues blue red and green.ReplyCancel

Black and white just seemed like a perfect fit for this picture of Lily. Brings the focus totally onto her face!

Specs: 35mm lens, ISO 400, F 3.2, 1/60, removed scratches from her face, sharpened her eyes a bit and then made B&W with Photoshop Elements 6.0
