Puppy Love

Puppy LoveA portrait of a girl and her puppy at sunset.

This was a fabulously funny shoot.  The puppy, who for the past two days since arriving in his new home had spent a lot of time sleeping.  He found his energy during the shoot and we all experienced a lot of laughs and a lot of chasing!  To view this image in black and white please visit Monochromia for my Thursday post.

Natural light, back lighting, at sunset.  I shot low to high to capture the summer haze.

“Man, unlike any other thing organic or inorganic in the universe, grows beyond his work, walks up the stairs of his concepts, emerges ahead of his accomplishments.” – Samuel Johnson

Keep Your Promise

I see thee

The sun at your back

Water droplets rest

Untouched upon you

Like a kiss so gentle

On a lover’s lips.



Keep  Your Promise

Your petals so fine

Blow delicately in the breeze

Yet you hang on

With a grasp quite tight

As a flower does

To keep

The promise

Of everlasting beauty.

In the language of flowers the plum blossom means to keep your promise.  Although the blossoms are short-lived, the beauty of the flower is everlasting in the eye of the one who was blessed to see and smell it.

A Bit of Cheer

After several dreary days I felt the need to post some cheer this evening.  The images below were taken in August (no chance of seeing this quality of light here this week).

Different plants, different lighting, all hibiscus. May they brighten your week.
