Dog Blog Post #483: I set out to take a picture of "Texture", but it wasn't meant to be.

When I sat down at the computer, hours later, the pictures I had snapped in a hurry were both overly washed out and too dark (yeah team) and simply weren't going to work.

Plan B: See What Else was on the camera.

What Else turned out to be a series of washed out, murky, but otherwise decent shots of the boys playing fetch (who'd a thunk it?)

Hmm.... what to do with that?

Turns out the most recent prompt for Our Daily Challenge was "Black, White, and Grainy" - and thus you have the fairly heavily processed picture up top (mostly to bring out "grain".)

This also works for 111 Pictures in 2011 - "22. Black and White".

The rest of the shots were taken a few days ago, and have no purpose in life other than to (hopefully) make somebody smile...

I'm calling this the "St. Zachary" collection, as I'm pretty sure he is one of the world's most tolerant dogs.

I love these! I'm never good at taking these sort of action shots... one of those skills I need to work on.

I loved those pictures and now I see the story behind them! The boys look so happy and carefree, I think that's the draw of them for me.

I tried doing the nerdy shot yesterday and it was an epic fail! There was no way I was posting those pictures anywhere. *sigh* I am feeling better about today's pictures, though. I guess I won't have to turn in my camera after all.

No one here with an eye for photography, so looking at great shots taken by others is always a source of wonder and awe for me. I love these! It's so obvious they are having a great time!
