Henry: "Momma, shouldn't I be facing the other direction?"

No, sweetie. Today we are trying to demonstrate a Vanishing Point.

Henry: "My rump is vanishing to a point?"


Vanishing Point
Zachary: "You do realize you have me pointing the wrong way, don't you?"


Oh my goodness, Zachary,  I hadn't notice.

Vanishing Point
Zachary: "I can't work under these conditions."

Dog Blog Post #1026

Despite taking a fair number of shots, I never got quite the angle from the boys that I was looking for.

The problem of being lone photographer with living subjects, I suppose.

In the top shot, Henry's nose was turned just a little bit too far away from the camera to be the Vanishing Point I was hoping for. In the shot below it, he was turned a bit too far towards the camera.

Zachary's shots suffered from various positioning ills as well.

At least the boys' coats look rich, golden and (for Henry at least) wonderfully lush (if you aren't the one who has to sweep up after him), and hopefully qualify as Beauty Found.

In the Background

I'm really happy with a recent pair of fabrics I picked up, the one above a brown Batik and its blue version shown in yesterday's Shocking! post.

At $12 a yard - and I need 2 yards - it was a well outside my preferred price range for background fabrics. However, I lucked out and found it 2/3 off on close-out.

Finally, a rich blue fabric that doesn't turn the boys a weird color and the brown manages to both blend into the background yet bring out their golden tones.

Just when you thought I'd finally run out of Flower Power shots, we have Zachary...
