Eyes and whiskers

During our morning hike, I had fun playing with my camera, using a very selective depth of field to accentuate different aspects of Shyla's face. Her eyes...
 Her nose and whiskers. She says "I've got whiskers. How about you?"
 And, those glowing eyes again.
During our evening hike, R stood proud atop a boulder with beautiful sunset sky behind him.
I didn't really discover photography until a couple of years ago although my mother was an accomplished photographer. It's so much fun to make artistic photos of my dogs in our beautiful mountain terrain.

  1. I've discovered over the years I love dog photography (well, and horses) over everything else.

    Great photos!

  2. I tend to blame my bad photography on my point 'n' click camera, but I don't have a very good eye for composition.

    It's one reason I enjoy following blogs like yours...the pictures are always fantastic!

  5. You do a great job capturing them! And selective focus was a challenge on the DDC a couple of days ago. My guess is that you always had a good eye for beauty and composition, though, even if photography wasn't an interest of yours until more recently.

  9. Those are great! I like the whiskers best. My MOM is still learning how to take pictures. I said, "Take a class." But she is still doing it by trial and error. Thank goodness for digital.

  10. You may not have "discovered" photography until recently but dear friend it, I believe, has always been there at the core of your creative soul, waiting to be released!
