Smiling’s My Favorite

Music & More Challenge

39.) Photoshoot that makes you smile

David Venni, tagged


I often cite the David Venni photoshoot as my favorite photoshoot overall but the tagged bunch in particular makes me smile. the grey suit with surrounding walls are my favorite, lighthearted but meaningful. it just occurred to me that maybe he’s trying to look fierce?


the hands are prominent throughout the entire series, it’s something that heavily influences my fondness for the shoot as a whole.


and there’s just something about that blue shirt and accompanying facial scruff that I can’t seem to tear my eyes away from!


I’m not sure why these particular shots were overlooked in the untagging process but I still enjoy them, regardless.

music question: a song that makes you smile

I wanna be sedated by the Ramones

it helps me find the humor in exasperating situations (which are often of my own making..)

Hurry hurry hurry before I go insane I can’t control my fingers I can’t control my brain

The Finish Line

Richard Armitage 30 day challenge

30.) your favorite picture


did I actually complete the challenge? all 30 days without skipping any?


I didn’t keep to my original plan of blogging everyday, on top of keeping up with my normal two posts a week that weren’t challenge related, but I did try to fill the challenge posts with actual content, instead of just answering the question;

I think it all worked out.

Now I’ll get back to recounting my fan-path, working on completing that A to Z challenge that kind of fizzled out, and just sharing my random Richard Armitage related thoughts.

so stay tuned…

It was difficult for me to pick a favorite photo-shoot. I never seem to like all of the pictures from any one shoot, but at the same time, really love a few specific ones.

Like this one:


or this one:


and most definitely this one:

it’s my absolute favorite photo-shoot picture of Richard Armitage. The challenging stance, the cocky look on his face, and all that explosion of blue!

I like the “stop!” hand gesture picture too:

Some of the shots have odd background choices or poses that are too flashy for my tastes though.




shots that focus on the hands are able to distract me, in a good way:


Unfortunately, a lot of this shoot remains tagged. There is a nice collection of them on the Richard Armitage Bulgaria Facebook page.


I do have a fondness for blue ❤
