I feel like a cop out. A doggin prances past me and the camera starts firing. All by itself. OK… lies, but I just can’t help it. I have to photograph them. They’re my fur babies. My baby bear and yard cow. It’s inevitable. And if it happens to be outside, so be it.
Here is my grass:
Now let me say I did try some different stuff. I took a series of shots that were a bit more “artistic”, cropping the dog in such a way that the photo held interest and had good lines. But then I realized that it was just a picture of Chase’s butt and no one really wanted to see that so I opted for this one.
Grass fills the frame. Subject has been identified and photographed. (How’s that for some spy-talk.) Chase… well, this is her “I’m being very still now hurry and take the picture or I’m gonna bolt!” And bolt she did. The frame following this one, she’s up and running from the scene to smell the hiney of the beagle out back. Some things are better left to be misunderstood.
I think a few of us are still hanging in there so it might be worth your while to check out the flickr group. Next week’s challenge is “pink” – I’ve got to get my photo pronto since my schedule is somewhat full next week. But it’s a color challenge… and I love color challenges!
With our challenge winding down (only four weeks left), I’m slacking in the decision department. No surprise there. Part of me wants to start another weekly challenge immediately. Another part [that seems to be more of a bully] wants to take a break before cranking in another year of photos. Thoughts? Feelings? Anything that might make a decision stick?
