I Heart Faces Week 38–“Smirk”

e_MG_4489 smirk

Here’s what I Heart Faces has to say about this week’s theme: “A smirk refers to a smile evoking insolence, scorn, or offensive smugness. Whatever you think constitutes a “smirk” on someone’s face will be acceptable for this week’s challenge. We can’t wait to see what you all enter!”

So, I don’t really know quite what a smirk is, but I think that’s what these guys were giving me in this picture. I take a lot of pics at my son’s school and was shooting these boys in “spiritwear” to promote the school store. They patiently followed me all around the school in the blazing mid-morning heat, trying to find a little shade. We discovered this spot by a modular, and they dutifully looked up, down, at each other, smiled, looked serious. And then, suddenly, as I was snapping this shot, they broke out in a “sign”, full well knowing I couldn’t use this one for the promo. See those faces? Smug… yes, I think this just might be a smirk!

  1. They definitely have smirks on their faces! What great models! And look at you : ) You have a photography ‘job.’ You know why you have it don’t you? Cause you are the super-est photographer at your school : ). And you are the super-est Mommy to your bug catcher. And the super-est neighbor to the pretty girls 🙂 Really, Pamalicious, there isn’t anything you aren’t super at.
