PICTURE THIS #198 - FACES

Welcome back to Mitch. Thank you to Baz for keeping an eye on all of us *winks* Mitch is back in the saddle and has asked for FACES:- 


 My first one, is a joyful lot of faces, smiling, at the recent Irish Blarney Brothers rendition in aid of Animals in Distress that I attended. Great Gran, Great Grandson, Grandaughter and Son, all enjoying themselves with Happy Faces:-

My second entry for this lovely challenge is a take on the Afrikaans word "Faces", "Gesiggies" is the name of this lovely flower ,we all enjoy as Pansies. I just love the word Klein Gesiggies - Small faces as indeed I think they look like smiley faces, in the beginning of our winter, flowering , making me smile.

Have a fantastic week, 
loves to all

  1. Just love the donkey - I think he was laughing at you. The first is a lovely family photo. I always think that pansies have faces and seem to be mocking you.

  2. Hi Marianne!! Really nice collection of shots for the theme. That's a lovely happy family shot to start with. Yes, I've always thought that pansies have 'faces', a lot of them look angry to me!! My fave shot, thought, is the laughing donkey.....wonderful shot :-))

  6. Thank you everybody for your nice encouraging comments. That donkey was a real character, met him at my mini-break. A beggar too, braying outside our cottage in the morning, for bread to eat.
