I ♥ Faces Contest - Adult

2.17.2009

The category this week at I ♥ Faces is Wonder. I had watched these sisters all day as they played around, getting ready for the wedding moment that would separate them by relationship, by time, by hundreds of miles, but it wasn't until this moment, when the younger sister moved to lift her sister's veil, that what was happening became real. The absolute wonder on her face as she looked into her older sister's eyes and saw her as a bride for the first time still makes me cry to see, two years later.


Be sure to stop by and check out the other adult entries. They're pretty great!

[UPDATE: This photo placed 7th in the top ten! Check out the other finalists here!]

The picture is stunning by itself -love the timeless feeling of the coloring/processing and the expression in the eyes of the sister. But when I read your caption, it carried the photo to another level for me. Lump in my throat here! Congrats on your top ten win!
