iHeartFaces Week 20 – Silhouettes

DaGoddess @ 06:23

I have three silhouettes I’m considering for this week’s iHeartFaces challenge. Does a dragon’s face made of wood count, I wonder? It’s a valid question. Somehow I don’t think a wooden face will get the a-okay, so I continued to look through photos from Death Valley, various excursions around town, and finally settled on my favorite silhouette of all: Ronnie Baker Brooks.

This particular image means a lot to me. First, Ronnie’s one of the sweetest guys in the world. Second, he’s cute. Majorly cute. Third, he’s an incredible musician, which he displayed that evening as he got behind the bar (guitar behind his back and still being played — by him! No stunt hands or helpers), mixed himself a rum and diet coke, and then drank it through a straw in one long sip…ALL WHILE PLAYING. Fourth, the night this was taken was just after Rob died and Ronnie played a couple of songs that hit deep, let me cry, and then cheered me up. Fifth, after hearing that, he just hugged me good and long. Sixth, that bar was just perfect as a backdrop.

Yeah, if that’s not a good enough reason to post this photo, I don’t know what is.

Note: Taken with my old Olympus 3.2mp and basically no post processing was done.

  5. Thank you, all! It took me a while to put my finger on the right image, but I think I picked the best of the bunch.
