Cheeky Monkey!

Monday's are new photo challenge day at I Heart Faces - and this week's theme is a great one, and right up my alley: Let's Hear It For The Boys!  As a parent to a teenage son, I thought to myself, "Yay! I have picture that fit this week's theme."  Phew, no girlie pictures needed or wanted this week (not that I have anything against taking pictures of my great-nieces; they're adorable, too).  So, I sift through pictures of my son and find one or two that might work ... and then remember one of my great-nephew, taken over Memorial Day.  So, here's my entry for this week - Cheeky Monkey (LOL).  Can't you just see the mischief brewing in those eyes?


The original photo was a little more blown out than I would have liked, so I kind of ran with it and took that to the extreme in the processing, really playing up light and dark.

Okay, I will post some scrapbook pages, soon, I promise ... just having fun with photography right now.  In fact, I even took my camera off auto mode and played in ... manual!  *** shock horror ***
