As I’m getting ready for the wedding I’m photographing tomorrow, it seems a good time to pull out some canine photos taken a few weeks ago.
These are our two Australian Shepherds, Austin (the red merle) and Pearl (the blue merle). This first one is a common type of portrait, as you can easily tell. 🙂
But I don’t always stick to the standard. My eye is often drawn to details, different perspectives, and something that may tell more of a story. This next one shows how strong the wind was blowing as Austin took one of his rare moments to stand still and see what the other two dogs were up to. I get the dogs out in the field at least twice every day and sometimes more. My husband also always takes them out once in the evening after we’ve had dinner. Having dogs is a big responsibility since they rely on humans entirely for their exercise, mental stimulation, and food.
This third one is my favourite of today’s images. This is Pearl and I love the perspective as well as how the wind was blowing her hair. The contrast of her hair against the background also appeals to me. I’m usually not at all any good at titles but I’d call this one, “Who Has Seen the Wind?”
