Photo Challenge with Laura @ Our Reflection (Take 2)

Our Reflection Photo Challenge

I am excited to be taking part in this week's photo challenge again, especially as Lena (@ Mum 2 Memphis and Rudy) set a particularly difficult topic: "faceless portraits".  I went straight out with my camera to see what I could snap.  Unfortunately, things did not go to plan, so instead I drank hot chocolate and thought carefully about the photos I might already have taken that might apply to this category.  In the end, I decided to go with this lil' guy.



Can't you just see how determined he is to get into the fountain?

This was the selection of photos I was choosing from (click read more):

These were taken in the Luisenpark in Mannheim yesterday:


This flamingo would have been a great entry, IF the background had been lush green, or something other than dirt.


I don't think this quite counts as 'faceless'; sorry gorgeous duck!

This one was taken at a stunt show we went to see on Sunday. 


Crazy people.  I love the colours of this one.  It might be a contender!

These photos were taken in Luxembourg last summer at a street performance festival. 


This little guy kept on running away from his mum and kept trying to climb in the fountain. You can see the determination without needing to see his cute little face!


This is one of the street performers that freaked me out the most.  A faceless portrait that still 'technically' has a face.  This might be too confusing even for me!

Then this was taken in my first visit to the Australian outback (in the Northern Territory)


I was looking out over Kakadu national park. This is a faceless portrait of me, coming to a crossroads in my life.  Well, if you can't think here, where can you?


I remember this view like it was yesterday. I was facing a few personal challenges here. (Scared of heights, fitness, the potential deadly animals all around!)

I hope you can join in the photo competition too...I am not the world's best photographer, but it's a great way to give your weekend a spot of creativity!
