I was out in GV with my new friend Claire this evening and a doggy mama and her two sweet Weimaraners (they looked like it, I thought) came up to where we were sitting. The doggy mama, who was too funny, referred repeatedly and affectionately to Charley here as her doofy kid.

Look at his intent gaze!

This is amazing, Dane! I love the framing, and the contrast between the tack-sharp focus and the background bokeh is wonderful. I'm guessing doggy mama would kill to have this printed large and framed. For that matter, you should frame it yourself.

Dane said...

Thank you. This might be in the top three photos I've ever taken, I like it that much. I'm really happy you like it too.

If I had any way of finding her again, I'd get her email and send her a copy. If someone had given me such a picture of Sugar and his big personality, I'd have been so touched.

That is a great photo. One of your best, and that's saying something.

Dane said...

Thank you so much, John. I really appreciate that!

I have no idea whether that dog has labrador in it, but it looks a lot like our dog Max, whom I call Black Shuck.

Just beautiful. I hope you find him again!

I don't either Major, but I can see lab in there.

Thanks, Karen!


Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
