When I woke up this morning, I recalled that it was Go Red for Women day. To be part of this great cause to build awareness about heart disease, I took this photo of a bendy guy holding a paper heart and posted it to Facebook. But I thought it would also be good to share this on my blog post to help encourage heart-healthy activities for women, and men.

Initially, I tried taking the photo without a flash, but the red heart blended in too closely with the red bendy guy. I played with the angle of the flash, but found that a straight-on shot provided the best contrast between the two, and wasn’t overbearing. I just wish the bendy guy wasn’t so reflective that he ended up with a light-spot nose.
Oh well. A fun photo for an important, healthy day.
