Perchance to Dream

Perchance to Dream

Dog Blog Post #725:

Daily Dog Challenge "233. Relaxed - Take a photo of your dog in a relaxed pose or position today."

Zachary was laying on the sofa beside me, his head resting on my leg, in the early evening hours. As I gently petted him, I watched his eyelids get heavier and heavier.

While the camera/lens were rather bitter about taking a shot this close, I did get a pair in the end.

For kicks, I threw an edge blur on them, trying to achieving a "dreamy" look.

Our Daily Challenge - June 20 2012 - "Mystery"

Do dogs dream?

I've seen Zachary's whiskers twitch and the tips of his paws paddle as though running, so I'm going to guess the answer is yes.

But about what will forever be a mystery.

Scavenge Challenge June 2012 - "17. Make a formal portrait ("head shot") of a companion animal (yours or a friend's)." (spare)

They reminded me of the glamour shots of Hollywoods Golden Age. Of course, around my place, it's always a Golden Age. :P

Windows of the soul, or simply reflecting the window?

I really love these shots, too! The dreamy quality to them really draws me in and I find myself just wanting to curl up and take a nap with them. These might be some of my favorites of yours!
