Weekly Photo Challenge – Face ep. 3

The Bean throws face!

Given the nature of this WordPress Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge, it was only reasonable to expect at least one more photo for the Face.

Given our love for our four-legged fur-friends, aka dogs, it is only logical to include one of those faces that just melts our hearts on a fairly regular basis…

Dorothea Lange, aka the Bean

 

Dora, or the Bean, knows how to throw a cute face in our direction, which appears to be an innate skill.  This underscores the importance of facial expressions, as Bean has used this ability very adroitly at times when she knew that she had done something that she shouldn’t.  But what are you going to do when this face looks at you like that?  We are powerless 🙂

Hopefully, this face makes you smile, as it does us.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Face

The lady thinks…

The theme for the WordPress Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge is Face, celebrating our many different faces.

As the face is our primary interface for communication with one another, it has been featured in art throughout the ages; from the beautiful bust of Nefertiti to the grotesque expressions of gargoyles on cathedrals, the face has been central, such as in this sculpture at Tower Hill Botanic Garden.

The expression on her face draws us in to wonder what thoughts are crossing her mind.  Is she thinking of a love long lost?

What do think is on this lady’s mind?
