admiring portraits

august pumpkin

We have a ripe pumpkin from the garden. It's August. Is Thanksgiving coming early this year? Should I be concerned?

Lately I've noticed some of my friends and neighbors making amazing portraits. I particularly love self-portraits, but there's also that special genre of portraits taken by the beloved. They are the admiring portraits.

The two that made my heart go pitterpat this week:

a portrait of my next-door-neighbor, indiaromeo.

shari's portrait of her beloved T and his beloved homebrew.

This is a short post today... I'm going to be absent for a few days as I work on a final exam in my hideous evil epidemiology class. It's due Monday night... see you on the flip side.
