    Now before you all panic thinking my hubby’s had enough of me pointing my camera at him, this was just a bit of fun :))
    He was helping out at work and was doing a rather grimy task which meant that by the time he got home he was black as pitch. When he got in, I was pre occupied and chatted away to him not noticing how black his face was, it was only when I looked up and saw the whites of his eyes (and not much else) that I burst out laughing and ran and grabbed my camera! He loves to play the part, so as I was focusing, unbeknown to me, he grabbed hold of one of our kitchen knives and bared his teeth at me….a little bit unnerving at first but I burst out laughing as did he, because I all could think of was that he looked like a cross between ’Cap’n Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) and the crazed Jack Nicholson character out of The Shining!…hence my title! He’s quite proud of his new ‘portrait’ and it’s certainly grabbed a bit of attention :))

    Yikes… you really got the goods on this one!

  • hahahah thank you Lina, I couldn’t stop laughing even when I was editing it, enhancing his dirty face and whitening his eyes and teeth even more just gave me the giggles :))

    Excellent Sarah. I wouldnt like to meet him on a dark night. LOL.

  • hahahahaha it’s not very often he co operates with me on a photo, but he went full on with this one! I think it’s one of the fastest photos and edits I’ve ever done :)) Sometimes spur of the moment captures turn out the best. He’s impressed with it….although I’m not sure I’d like to have it hanging in my house!!! LOL

    …the sense of playfulness here is well explained, Lisssy…good thing…because this image appears so real….ha ha…those eyes say it all…

  • still makes me chuckle even now when I look at it, he sat and watched me edit it, and had a full on giggle attack when I said to him ‘’ your face is so dirty, it’s almost like you’ve hdr’d your face without me having to do anything!" Adding those final touches, like a bit of red to his eyes only made me giggle more :))

    What a cool image! He reminds me of myself this morning, without the knife, of course! My two wee grandsons ( staying at their house for a few days) woke me this morning at 6am with screams of, “Get off my bed!!!!” Anyway….was cranky, now I am smiling….thanks for the early morning laugh…needed it! Great work!!!

  • hahahha I think his face is a bit of us all in the morning :)) He’s never lost that ability to make me laugh in the 16yrs I’ve known him. He gets seriously cranky at times, but it never lasts long and once he flashes those teeth in a smile…well that’s why I married him :))
