Portrait Day

Today is portrait day, and I thought I might take this in another direction. Admittedly, this is a little thrown together.

The first is my wives little dog Minnie, named after the mouse, because she's not much bigger than a mouse. She's very high energy. I can just picture her saying in a nervous frantic sort of way,
"Mom....hey mom...look mom...wwwwhat's that thing?...Can't you see it?? Rrrrrright over there...Iiiin his hands. Hey, what you doing with that thing....Whoa.....What was that flash...Hey....hey mom did you see that...That bright thing....Ooooooh no, now I can't see. Hey mom hey hey mom....."

The next picture is simply a run down old tired shed wall. It's not what you would call an action shot, and it certainly says a lot about my outdoor cares. But it does have a lot of detail in it. I thought it was kinda interesting.

THe last one, I tried something a little artsy. I had a very detailed walnut tree in the foreground that I had the camera focus on and then I moved around to add an interesting but out of focus background. It turned out ok.

Great shot of the shed. I bet it would look even more fabulous in black and white!
