Inspired by Lárus' Dirty:

So it was 4.5 hours until rollover, Tate reminds me that I mentioned I might try to recreate the Larus shot, I get home from work, it's perfectly cloudy outside, and I'm begging my 8-year old daughter "please, please put this mud on your face. I'll give you $1. I'll give you $2." Not kidding! I had to put mud on my face first, and I think her look was driven by her genuine spite.

We all got muddy and then washed up with the hose - turned out really fun! And the ribbon makes it even more fun -- yep, Neat, gotta make good on that bribe, I suppose!

Oh, and fun fact, Julia also knocked her 6-month-old-self off my profile page:

Thanks everyone!

Looks to me like you beat Larus at his own game. :D

This is amazing. One of my two 10s.

Congratulations on a stunner of a daughter... and a gorgeous shot.

And all for only $2 (plus the facial). :D

Congrats on the ribbon. Lol at the 'if-looks-could-kill' expression. She does not look happy at all. I hope the $2 made up for it all. (Now, if I could only get my dog to go for that... )

Big congratulations on your first ribbon Jeff and your second highest score :)

For me, the finishing touch with the image is that your daughter is almost side on and facing the camera, I can't explain it but it adds another dimension to the shot.

Lol love the story. I also have to bribe my kids to let me take their photos - their rates are getting sky high.

Anyway brilliant portrait. Congrats on the ribbon.

This is the best of the dirty face images, simply because the dirt covers her whole face and her look is intense. Well done.
