Dog Blog Post #250: Two hundred and fifty posts? Gee... had I realized that before this moment, I might have done something special.
Anyway, today's Daily Shoot assignment is:
Make a photograph of something that is glowing today. Use any meaning of the word you like.
I don't know about you, but the first few things that flitted through my brain were all combustible, and therefore totally incompatible with a fur covered life-form. Thankfully, yesterday's post was hanging about, with Zachary's glowing face staring right at me.
Perfect! All I had to do was recreated it.
So this morning, I grabbed my new backboard, by stretchy black velvet fabric, the piece of leopard print fabric, the dog pillow, and set things up in my kitchen to take advantage of the morning sunbeam.
All 12"-18" of it.
Given the time of day, that meant I was actually hunched over underneath the kitchen table to get the shot, while Zachary basked in the sunshine, on a "fur" covered pillow, eating a dog treat every 15-30 seconds while I wiped his muzzle between each shot.
No wonder he was glowing.
For the record, I uploaded the first photo. While my son preferred the bottom one, I felt the additional black around the top picture made Zachary (especially in square thumbnail form) look even more glowy.
(BTW: That really is the color straight out of the camera. I did a bit of cropping, a smidgen of sharpening, but otherwise left it as is.)
