IHF Week 4 - “Texture” Photo Challenge!

This week's challenge over at I Heart Faces is texture.  Here's their description:

"We {heart} texture a bunch...whether it's texture we find out in nature, on a building or if the texture is added by using your photo editing program. We are looking for entries that incorporate texture in an interesting and beautiful way.

You must (of course!) have a human face strongly incorporated into your photo as well" 


I wasn't quite sure where to go with this challenge.  Because of the torrential downpours we've had this week, I was struggling with where to go for this theme.  After going through my Flikr photostream, I realized texture was right there in my face!  

This photo is of our wonderful friends, Jennifer and Aviana Hodder.  Aviana and her grandfather were badly injured when they were hit by a car while crossing the street this past June.  So badly, Aviana wasn't expected to survive the night.  Almost two months after the accident, her friends and family flooded into the UC Davis Children's Hospital to celebrate her 3rd birthday.  I captured this moment when we took her outside to rest under a beautiful tree.  You can read about the Hodder's and their journey at
