For whatever reason, when I sat down this morning to put together the Daily Dozen, men with round head/faces popped into my head. I hadn’t even opened my laptop or given it any thought. Sometimes it happens. I’ve done two sets based on round – men with round chins and people wearing round glasses. One of the tricky parts in doing round heads/faces is not simply using every bald face I have. While it’s true bald heads do make ones head/face look rounder it isn’t the only thing that can convey that impression. Sometimes it is the cheeks and chin together, sometimes the hairline. Sure, today’s set has plenty of bald fellows but it has plenty of other kinds of faces too. Hope you enjoy them all.
It’s safe to say that guys in the 21st century have gotten the short end of the accessory stick. When I did a set of women wearing necklaces recently there were so many photographs from which to choose. Today, not so much. It hasn’t always been the case though – think of all the great jewelry found in the tombs of kings and pharaohs. Alas those glory days have largely passed now. There are a few keepers of the flame though and here are 12 that might rekindle the look again!
Sometimes I do a terrible job of remembering to post these face collections. I don’t know why because I really like them – but I haven’t done it in months and that’s not good. It isn’t good for a couple of reasons. First it means I’ve deprived people of plenty of fine faces. Second it means I have a ton of photos to deal with and that’s kind of a pain. This set is interesting to be because they span the loss of my old Digital Rebel and my starting to use my new T2i. I’ve had the new camera for a few months now and I’m still getting used to it. At some point things will stabilize but for the moment the faces are in flux. Having lost my flash as well I’ve been taking most of them with natural light. That’s been cool but it has drawbacks as well.
I’ll stop going on. Here are the faces:
Well that’s all of them (not all of them – you can see ALL of them on Flickr). I need to write on the blackboard “I won’t wait four months to post my next Fresh Faces set” a thousand times or something . . .
Let me know what you think.
