Wordless Wednesday: Camera Shy



My good friend's daughter, Sam (left), hides behind her hair while her friends turn away from the camera. In another photo I did actually get them to smile for me, but yet I find this photo very compelling for some reason.

  1. It's a great photo and I think I would've posted this one as well.

  3. It is a super photo. If they are anything like my young nieces they don't really feel comfortable about having their photograph taken, but in the years ahead they will thank me, as these young ladies will you :) Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have enjoyed my visit here and look forward to coming back.

  4. I think it works because of the similarity to the three wise monkeys; each there, each doing its own thing, each complementing the other on some level.

  5. Very neat capture Haley. I think I love the fact that they're both not facing away in the same direction the most. (Sorry that english is all wrong but I'm too lazy to fix it - hope you understand what I'm trying to say).

  6. It's an awesome photo! And I was much less shy about having my photo taken at their age then I am now. LOL :)

  9. I think this definitely tells a story and it's a great shot as well.

    I love the wind blown hair. Please forgive me in taking so long to get over here.

    But, my real life is crazy right now too!!

    Happy Sunday:-))))

  10. Thanks everyone! It's nice to know that my instincts on this one have a foundation.

    @Mark -- I can see the three wise monkeys. I also see a little bit of the three graces. I think some of the sculptures have them facing different directions.

    @fragileheart -- You're English was totally fine. :) And, yes, I like they way they're facing different directions, too.

    @castocreations -- I find myself pretty shy around the camera now, too. That's why I like to be behind it.

    @Shinade -- I totally understand about how life gets a little crazy.
