52 Weeks' #17: Indoors

Here we are already at Week #17 and thrilled to be participating once again in Beautiful Beasties' Project 52 Weeks.  This week's challenge was to play with the theme "INDOORS". I cheated and went into my archives because this is one of my all-time favorite photos for very sentimental reasons and expresses the theme well.  I wanted to share it with you. The big guy is Dufus and his sidekick is Keeper.  They were two of the first new friends to welcome us to the neighborhood shortly after our exodus from Mexico.  I had recently taken the decision to step on to the path of pet photography and had just unpacked a new favorite lens when we were invited to have brunch at the ...

52 Weeks' #17: Indoors

Hi, and thanks for stopping by.  I'm happy to be back in the blogroll after a short sebbatical. This week's photographic challenge was "RURAL".  Having grown up surrounded by cornfields in the Midwest, "RURAL" is where I feel most comfortable. In our accelerating world, I have an insatiable craving for wide open spaces and communion with nature.  Oreo is my faithful companion on long walks at dusk across our rural lanscapes. We have nice conversations while chasing the last few golden rays of the day.  Even with his crippled back legs, he always leads the way, alert to the wonders along our path and ever-conscious of my presence a few paces behind.  This is the view ...

52 Weeks' #17: Indoors

This week's challenge was to capture images depicting a favorite song.  I didn't have to think hard about this one.  A few months ago, as I was finishing the development of my website, I sat down to find that "perfect melody" to accompany my slideshows.  After many hours of listening, I kept going back to an instrumental piece from the talented artist, Laura Hall because it made me feel so happy.......the way I feel whenever I'm capturing the grace of people + pets with my camera. By sheer coincidence as I was purchasing the license to the music, I discovered that Laura had also written perfect lyrics............and those lyrics have become some of my very favorites. For ...

52 Weeks' #3 Shadows

52 Weeks' #17: Indoors

What a great way to end the week! In the company of some terrific pet photographers who I admire greatly, here again participating in the Beautiful Beasties Network's 52 WEEKS Blog ring.We missed Week 1's theme: Introductions.  So I present to you here my "Oreo". One of my "shadows". Never leaves my side. He is a Mixed Breed/Pure Heart; a rescue from Mexico. Several veterinarians told me Oreo would never walk again after both of his hind legs were fractured when he collided violently with a motocycle on a highway in Acapulco. But he proved them wrong.  He runs now, like a Greyhound, true to his Spanish Galgo descent.  He is strong and determined and knows about survival. He ...
