I did work on my Dogwood 52 week photography challenge, focusing on two faces that make me smile. The challenge was to "fill the frame" so I filled two frames with our canine family.
Sweet Shyla. No dog has changed me as much as Shyla has. She has her weaknesses, which I focus on too often. I've grown closer to her than I ever thought would happen with any dog after K. She puts up with my "drive" that has an intensity that used to scare her. And, I help her through her fears and try to make her smile every day. I'm so glad that we insisted on keeping her almost 6 years ago.
Then, there's our black dog. He always manages to look serious in portraits but he's one of the goofiest and happiest dogs I've ever known. I love when I can find the right light to highlight his brown eyes. They show the sweetness of his soul.
Today, I celebrate these two canines who bring us so much happiness!
