The Eyes Have It

The Eyes Have It


Dog Blog Post #510: Today's Daily Dog Challenge was...

17. The Eyes Have It - "Make a photograph of your dog's eye or eyes as close as you can get."

... one that I rarely do well. I'd like to think it's because the boys' eyes are so rich and dark brown (like the Standard says they should be) but I'm not sure I buy that.

Especially when I do something as lame-brain as leaving the white drool rag oh-so-fashionably tucked into my belt while I take a picture of those oh-so-reflective eyes.

(sigh)

... and since that's all I have on the canine front, how about some Scavenge Challenge pictures of pretty foliage for "Make an image with a crisp, fresh bright appeal"..

Crape Myrtle


Crape Myrtle (Alternate)


... and "Make a close-up photo of one of Nature's smaller beauties (subject size under 2 inches)."

Rose Hip


... all three being principally of the Crape Myrtle, with the last having a rose hip as well.

Oh wait, I do have one more canine shot - this one for "grungy, dark, worn look"...

Screen


... really must clean those screens one of these days.

I like the picture, and now I see the drool rag! I wouldn't have known what it was if you hadn't said it. *snicker*

Gah! Must get in gear on the Scavenge Challenge! The killer is that I know what I want to do for a lot of the challenges, I just can't get them taken!

What wonderful thoughts hide in those eyes? Glad you took the time to try to find out!

Blue skies and fall leaves. Sigh, I wish you would send some of that my way.

I really had to zoom in to see the drool rag. I don't think I would have noticed it if you hadn't pointed it out. If you're anything like me, you're your own worst critic. ;) Your photos are always lovely.

I told my fiance that the Dog Daily Challenge is giving me new camera fever, and he just shook his head at me. Sigh.
