This is a photo I took for a monthly competition that I participate in. At first I wasn’t going to enter because I didn’t have much time to put anything together but in the end though… let me get something together. I tried to get a photo of Michelle and Elliot nose to nose but that didn’t work. I then tried to get the boys to pose together but again it didn’t work. I asked Elliot to kiss Joshua and after a few kisses on the head Elliot kissed Joshua on the nose like he’s taking a bite out of a burger. 🙂 I loved the expression on Joshua’s face and new that I’d got my photo. The colour tone wasn’t great so I removed almost all of the colour (almost as I didn’t want a black/white image). This is the result and it was my first first place in the competition. 🙂

On another note, I’ve just got back from a week in Lisbon, Portugal. After Hawaii, it’s the most amazing place I’ve ever been. So friendly and such amazing architecture, modern, bright and smart. I need to process the images and then expect 52 weeks of Lisbon photos 😉

Have a great week 🙂
