A couple of weeks ago she announced the theme for this week, Faces, and I immediately knew that I wanted to take part but what photographic face would I choose?
First I thought of the faces I miss, faces that have played a big part in my life and that appear in plenty of my photos but that, unfortunately, are no longer with us.
I thought of a particularly special face I lost at the beginning of this year, my grandad’s.
I also thought of our happy faces at our wedding, of that ecstatic first photo taken when my baby was born and handed over to me for the first time…
I even considered unknown faces that I have photographed in my travels, fantastic faces that hide mysterious stories.
Then I looked in the mirror and realised which face I wanted to write about: mine. I am, after all, a woman of many faces.
My face comes with a soundtrack, so press play if you fancy a bit of music to go with this post, or just hear it at the end to understand me better….
