Morning photo: Faces

It takes all kinds …

Face-painting at the Oktoberfest in Frisco, Colorado.

SUMMIT COUNTY — I’m mostly a landscape and nature photographer, but like almost everyone, I’m intrigued by faces, especially interesting ones that tell a story, pretty faces and, of course, there’s nothing like a child’s smile to melt even the iciest of hearts.

So when @EpsteinTravels announced this week’s #FriFotos Twitter chat theme, “faces,” I searched the archives for some of my favorite pictures of faces near and far. Each of the images evokes memories; some from trips to faraway lands and other from fun times right here at home in Frisco, Colorado. Join in the fun by posting your favorite face pics, tagging them with #FriFotos, then sit back and enjoy the show!

In the last 15 years as a Colorado-based environmental journalist, I’ve written more stories about this animal than any other topic, except maybe global warming. Do you know what it is? Click on the pic to learn more.
