Day 363 / 365

Woody our little Whippet has himself a play mate. This little chap is Milo our friends puppy. If you think one puppy running around is funny you should see these two bundles of happiness roll around for a while.
I just loved this little moment as it led to a rather hilarious moment when he stuck his head up looking for Woody, he just needed a little tin hat.

Day 336 / 365

He seems to like to sit here and watch me whilst I work at the computer, although he seems to prefer the 50mm to the 35mm as he barked at the camera today.

Day 310 / 365

Cute Alert!
Just in case I wasn’t busy enough we decided it was about time we added to the family around these parts. After spending a good few months looking for a suitable rescue dog, we figured let’s just get a puppy and bring him up right.
I imagine amusing puppy stories won’t be far away. Plus I now have an emergency go to for any 365 problem days that might occur. . . . . . .

That’s enough self indulgence for the project, back to real photographs tomorrow.

Who said anything about 365 portraits of people?

Day 7 – One week down and I’m already having to think outside the box.

Gracie waiting.

Gracie is the sweetest dog you could hope to meet. Always looking for the next person to stroke her, desperately in love with her owners, so much so that even a hint of them getting ready to go and she starts worrying that maybe they’ll forget her. She’s not really one for a game of fetch, she’ll catch a frisbee if it happens to be close enough and she has a liking to chicken.
I took a couple of shots of her at this “sitting” and I just fell in love with the look on her face in all of them, I’m not sure if she’s annoyed, bemused or just plain “putting up with me”. Whichever it is I have to laugh when I look at the photographs.
Decided to give this an aged finish and crop it square to “fake” an old family Polaroid shot (hence the slightly warm tones). I’m really happy with how it turned out, it’s probably my favourite shot of the week.
As for the project, well, I’m managing so far but I know without the help of family and friends this is going to get really hard really soon. Lisa has been a sweetie and is putting up with me so far, but the idea isn’t to shoot 365 images of one person. So I’m going to have to start looking around for volunteers and begging anyone that will listen that my artistic vision is at stake if they don’t pose for me.
I have a plan for the weekend but it is dependant upon me being able to get out of York (current weather is making this rather tricky). If the plan works I’m hoping next week will be easier. If not, I’m going to have to brave the freezing streets hunting for characters.
