Week 26 - "Pets" over at I Heart Faces

Well, looks like I am on a roll! I posted an entry in I Heart Faces last week and now another this week - don't faint now!

Pets, (read any kind of animal), is the feature this time and while you I know that we have the most gorgeous looking cat in. the. whole. wide. world. I am sure that there will be many almost as cute moggies entered - so I have decided to enter this shot I took about a month ago at the Melbourne Zoo.

Mr. Gorilla (as he will now be known as he is a massive beast and deserves a LARGE amount of respect) was just lounging in the winter sun with his foot up against the glass window, eyes closed, arms folded. I'm sure he was saying that he was bored of us and that we were of no consequence. That's how I felt anyway.

You really do need to click on this image to view it larger - the detail in his foot is just wonderful - plus you also get to see the lovely scratches and scrapes on the glass in their full glory.

After you have finished viewing here, please head on over to the I Heart Faces Blog and share your commenting love - we all love to get comments - plus you will get to see some seriously gorgeous and funny animals and some seriously gorgeous and talented photogs!

ahem - here I am - back to I Heart Faces week 25

I have lost my photo mojo or as some say my phojo.

Lots of things have been happening over the past few months besides the fact that I treated myself to an iPhone and have been taking most of my photos with that using the Hipstamatic App (see how cool I can be using the word app? ;P )

Anyway, my fav photography blog, i heart faces has the theme of TEEN this week so, after prompting from my gorgeous friend Hayley from over at Heller Ritz Photography, I took my one teen left (the other is on a school camp to the centre of Australia!!) and shot him! lol

When I asked this said teen, my 14 year old Zed, if I could please take photos of him over at our park because the theme this week is teen - do you know what he said? He said 'just take a photo of me here, lying on the couch because that is what us teens do'

Well yes, it is exactly what he is good at but it is not what I wanted! and I only had 10 minutes of that divine late afternoon golden sun left and I was having none of his teenage silliness! I got my own way and in the end it wasn't painful for him or for me. I love him for being so un-teenlike and doing this for me - he truly is a gorgeous boy inside and out.

Don't forget to head on over to iheartfaces and check out all of the wonderful teens there are!
