heart and sole

You know I'm a big fan of "I Heart Faces" and love to participate in their weekly photo challenge.  I also love when people do things that are bigger than themselves; for the greater good. 

It just so happens that this week at iheartfaces, they are teaming up with an organization with a passion for the greater good.  It's called Soles 4 Souls.  

So, this weeks theme at I Heart Faces is obviously....feet.  I instantly thought of a recent photo I took of a friend's daughter.  She was baptized at our church and my friend asked me to photograph the event for her.  I got plenty of great shots of the actual baptism, but I loved the shot I got of her feet after she got out of the water.  She was dripping wet and I just thought of the verse "How beautiful are the feet of them.." so I added it to the bottom.

And because there are no restrictions on number of photos this week, I thought I would show you a picture of her actual baptism. Such a beautiful day for a beautiful girl.

Hop on over to I Heart Faces and see a bunch of feet :D
