This is my entry for the 7 Days Portrait Photography Contest by @flamingirl DAY 2. This handsome subject of my photo is my surf coach and good friend Josue aka Rasta. He is a surfer, lyricist rapper and absolute advocate of the ‘Puravida’ lifestyle.
Not getting placed on Day 1 of this contest just made me want to try harder on Day 2. As the saying goes, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.” I shall keep entering as long as I am able. I love these photo competitions and applaud @flamingirl for her hard work and constant inspiration here on Steemit. I was surprised only 14 of us took part yesterday... I shall be expecting many more today!!!
This photo was taken with my Canon Powershot SX60 HS.
Although I love the original colour photo I took, I choose to submit this photo in monochrome as I feel it draws the focus even more to the eyes and their beautiful expression.

Our lives become beautiful not because we are perfect but because we put our heart into what we do.
