waiting for papa . . .

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 5 September 2011 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

Please be gentle with your comments, this is MY beloved dog, Sophie, a black Tibetan Terrier. She, like many black-haired dogs is difficult to photograph without extensive lighting and fol-de-rol. I snapped this iPhone shot as she sat on a wall at the coffee house yesterday morning. :-)

i like the way her head is going out of the frame. just enough to make out a dog. Fun, not? that only a nose and an eye is enough to tell the species.

What a tender eye she has ! And love the non-academic frame, we feel her movement, that's excellent !

Hey Dulcie, she is gorgeous, but unfortunately I am going to be rough with you - what happened to focus ? Was she still or moving while waiting ? I read above comments, do not see anybody is saying this , but to my eye - it really miss focus !

I love this abstracted slightly blurry view- it feels to me like she is just to bouncy to sit for a portrait, and has better things to do! (I have a bouncy, furry, black, best friend, too!)
