Dog Blog Post #359:"You are so beautiful, to me..."
Sorry... that rather sappy 70's song has been running through my head all day, after reading the Daily Shoot assignment:
Don’t over-think it. Make a beautiful photograph today. And tomorrow. Keep at it and discover your own view of beauty.
Well, duh. What did you think I was going to take a picture of? :)
Here's a slightly different shot...
... both of Zachary waiting for me to throw the Lacrosse Ball. While food will produce bright eyes and good expression for the camera, nothing lights up Zachary's world (and brings those ears up) like the Lacrosse Ball. Of course, holding the slimy, slippery ball in my "off" hand while trying to get a picture with my camera hand is... challenging... and I believe I'm going to have biceps like pop-eye if I keep this up.
It also means that I need to put the ball down if I have to change focal length (zoom in/out) which is when Henry usually steals the ball. Poor Zachary, the look on his face.
Speaking of Henry, here he is, distracted by some noise the neighbor made. Love the far off look in his eye.
I liked all three, and in the end basically closed my eyes and clicked to pick the one to be tweeted.
No, that's probably not the way professionals pick photographs. They probably analyze histograms and use little magnifying glasses to search for noise, or specks, or a hair out of place.
Oh well, life's too short.
Speaking of time being short, the boys wanted to thank Greyhounds CAN Sit for the Versatile Blogger award, and I will try hard to fulfill my end of it (something about divulging family secrets and passing the award on) tomorrow.
Assuming I don't fall asleep on the sofa...
... like I did tonight.
For the non-dog pictures, we have Our Daily Challenge - "Change"
Change? Really? I went with the picture above because the flower cluster shows all the changes a flower goes through, from buds at the bottom to blooming in the middle to spent at the top.
And finally Scavenge Challenge - "Classic Landscape"
Love the storm clouds in this one. (Don't ask how many pictures I had to take in order to get this. Ugh.)
