I love the comparison of baby blues and grown woman blues. Both beautiful!

Susan, you have such a beautiful smile. It reminds me a LOT of my best friend's smile. I don't get to see hers very often (she lives in southern CA, too!), so seeing yours today was like a breath of fresh air.

JourneytoFamily said...

You have gorgeous eyes, Susan! And so does that baby!

Christi said...

Beautiful as always. You look so happy in your picture. Congrats on placing last week.

Heather said...

Gorgeous shots, Susan!! I'm really getting a kick out of your self-portraits-- they all turn out so well! I'll have to give it a shot, just for grins and giggles :)

Your face just gave me the biggest smile. I love the clarity in your eyes. They look so real. I know they are but YKWIM. :)

One more thing...I think a tutorial is in order for how you get your eyes so spankin clear, sharp, and like shiny glass. Hint. Hint. Or maybe you could just email me the secret *before* Monday. Hee Hee

Love your entries! Your SP is fantastic! And I love the shot of your dog. He's absolutely smiling!

Laurel said...

Gorgeous shots - love those baby blues:).

Julie Rivera Photography said...

That little fellow's expression is great...wide eyed and ready for action and there you are interrupting his progress with that silly camera! :) Self portraits seem to be popular this week...I do like "meeting" the other contestants. And I really like your pet entry and the way you processed the image.

Catherine said...

Wow! I just love his big blue eyes! I think you have a beautiful smile and great eyes! And the pooch... I love that face! Great photographs... of course they always are. : )

Kim from Hiraeth said...

Beautiful baby eyes, sweet doggie eyes, but when I look at your photo I see your beautiful smile first. Love the way your eyes light up with it!

Dude is such a beautiful dog, don't let my bride see him, she'll get some crazy ideas. :). And what a great name,I love it.

The blues in your photos, are awesome, they definitely have it.

Everytime I come to your photo blog and see your colors, I just can't get over how fantabulous (is that a word? :) ) they are. So clear and vivid. The compositions and light are like no other.

You ROCK!

o.k I'm just a little envious. Those are amazing pictures.

Chocolate on my Cranium said...

Well done on your self portrait! The baby photo has beautiful eyes too.

Kerry said...

Your kids entry is perfect. I love the framing and the composition. And of course, the eyes are perfect!

Randi said...

Wow! 3 great photos! The little boy's eyes are striking!

Melinda said...

As always, such beatiful photos. I'm so jealous of your gorgeous eyes!

Stephanie said...

Wow great shots even of the self potrait...love them!

Kelly said...

Beautiful, beautiful self-portrait! I love the greens!

I'm always impressed when someone take a good self-portrait. I look so self-conscious in mine. I think I'm going to give it a go again. You can bet, though, that there won't be a mirror behind me. My rear end is...well, not skinny like yours. :)

Angie Seaman said...

Love that shot of the little boy. Incredible eyes! Just breath taking.
Blessings, Angie Seaman

I love those baby blues on the baby!
I can't see any wrinkles, but I do see JOY!
Duke looks like a fun dog.
Great entries. Like always!

Queen of the Gillards said...

I agree with a great comparison of baby blues to grown woman blues and the dog is great too. I haven't done any self portraits, I always just see the bad, guess I will have to give it a try.

Keri said...

Superb pictures! Those baby blues are amazing.

Annette said...

I love that you did a self portrait. Those are indeed baby blues. Beautiful photos, all three. Thanks for sharing.

Susan said...
