5 o'clock shadow

Here it it is, my favorite shadow: Rod's 5 o'clock shadow (although he pointed out it is really a five day shadow). I think it is so sexy when Rod has just a little bit of facial hair and I HATE when he has to shave it off. This challenge gave me an excuse to admire it for a little longer while he shaved this morning. :) I am posting two pictures because Rod and I liked different ones. Rod liked this one because of the angle and because of his reflection in the shower door.

I love the angle of this one and how voyeuristic it is. The composition is a bit distracting, but I really like the completely natural look on his face. I shot both of these with a "shade" white balance to give it a warmer feel.

hee hee...I LOVE the shadow on my hubby's face too and hate when he shaves it off. How funny! Great take on the word!

Great idea for shadow! The pictures are great. I think I would agree with your husband though, I like the top picture best, I like the light reflection in the shower door! Nice work!

Very creative idea, Jen!! Though I have to agree with Rod - I think I like the top one the best, too! I didn't even notice the shadow of him in the shower door at first, but it's great - love it!

oh and I just have to say - I love that he shaves with a regular old razor and not an electric one (like Rick does!) - something about it is just I don't know, more manly or sexy or something! Shhh!
