A light post today, while I work on a content-rich one for next week (following up on last week’s post about trauma and dogs).
After deciding to post only photos today I struggled to come up with some interesting photos that I’ve never taken. I’ve been photographing the dogs and the farm for seven years now, and there are just so many photos of dogs, hay in the barn and flowers that one can take.
Or so I was thinking. But then I remembered my Contemplative Photography class, and its inspiration to see the world in new ways. I decided to come up with a theme, like “texture” or “color” and go look for it with my camera in hand.
“Edges.” That’s what I came up with. Edges… the boundary line between one thing and another provides a wonderful contrast, and thoughts about where something ends, and where it might begin. Thus inspired, here’s a few things I found:
Southern Wisconsin is awash in corn drying in the fields. Always makes for great lines…
Sunflowers shining in the sun at the farm, the yellow petals a lovely contrast to the dark, green pine needles in the background:
My favorite “edges” of all… Tootsie alongside Willie, decorating our new living room rug. I love the comparison of little Toots alongside long and tall Willie.
What about you? I’d love to hear if you’ve found new and wonderful ways to photograph your dogs? Or your favorite professional dog photographer?
