Feeling Contemplative?

Then come on over to www.iheartfaces.com and check out all the great entries this week in the competition 'Contemplative'.





I have some pictures that fit this catagory that are sad...some very, very sad...but I wanted to go with something more wistful, thoughtful....this one of my baby girl makes me smile whenever I look at it. It also puts me in the mood for the up coming holidays, my most very favorite time of the year.

Can you guess which book and movie she was obsessed with at the time? Yep, 'The Polar Express'! She found this bell at the bottom of her toybox and was convinced beyond a doubt that it had fallen off one of Santa's Reindeer.

She would hold it near her ear and give it a gentle shake...I love this picture of her, so innocent, so ready to BELIEVE in magic :)

...the bell still rings for me, as it does for all who truly believe.

Can YOU hear the bell ring?

What a clear, sharp photo! I am sure as she "believed", there was so much she was contemplating, the where? and the what if's?. I especially love the black and white, and the contrast. It's just beautiful. :)

Listening to the bell and thinking of Christmas? Wishing? How perfect.

Thanks for your comment on my blog...it made me take a 2nd look at why I did what I did. I posted a response in my comment section. I like that you made me think!

Beautiful photo! The contrast in the darks and lights is perfect and the picture is so crystal clear. With the sweet story behind the photo I don't think it gets much better than this!
