Re: Project- 52 faces of 2015

Enjoying this too, but where is Lindsay's beard? Perhaps only she knows?

Re: Project- 52 faces of 2015

Hi there Murray!

I think that Beagletorque is highlighting the fact that the previous three portraits are of people with beards - I had to go back and check though!

Carry on posting the portraits - this seems like a fantastic project and keeps me coming back to see the next one!

Cheers,

Ralph.

Re: Project- 52 faces of 2015

Apologies for lack of images in this- been a bad couple of weeks. My little girl had an accident and was in hospital after burning her arm, so haven't had much of a chance to do anything.

She's doing good now, no grafts or surgery required. Here she is the day after getting out of Yorkhill Hospital in Glasgow (injured arm out of shot)

Re: Project- 52 faces of 2015

And here's Number 7 of the 52 faces project.

Shot with EM-1 and my new Noctricon 42.5 F1.2 Lens :-)

My nephew James. Ain't he brilliant?

James.

Question 1: James, what's your favourite thing to do?

A: Well, I like to do lots but I'd say at this early stage of my days, splishing and splashing in my bath is my favourite thing to do!

Question 2: What's your favourite food?

A: I'd have to say Haggis. I love it!

Question 3: Who is your favourite person apart from your Mum and Dad? Don't worry, as they're not on Facebook I won't tell them!

A: I'd have to say my big cousin Eilidh- I love when I see her and always like to hug her, although I think she freaks out a bit at how strong I am.

Big thanks to James for taking part this week- a wee star!

Your wee daughter looks happy, I hope that's a sign she's recovering well. And your nephew looks very thoughtful - maybe you should give him the list of questions that you gave your other friends

Nice shots both.

John

Re: Project- 52 faces of 2015

Two more excellent pictures. I'm glad to hear that your daughter is recovering well after a nasty accident and that there should be no lasting damage. It's a horrible thing for a parent to go through, it hurts far more than if it was yourself that was injured.

That Noctricon looks a tasty lens.

Sorry to hear of your daughter's injury Murray.

Thankfully she doesn't need surgery or skin grafts, she seems to be quite happy in the new pic.

A couple of good additional pics to the project also.

Dave

Thanks Brian. I only got the Noctricon on Tuesday so haven't had much chance to use it apart from with the kids today and yesterday. It's amazing.

Cheers for the comment my friend.
