To celebrate the new look for my blog, I put together a few collages with a some of my favorite photos from each of these categories: Portraits, Nature, Automobiles, Athletes, and Animals.
Be sure to take the poll at the bottom and vote for your favorite! Also, leave a comment with your thoughts on the new look & feel of the blog!
This change up comes in anticipation of the new year and my recent relocation to the greater Denver, CO area. The change has made me and my family happy, so this is a bit of a happier look for my site! 🙂
Last weekend I covered an adoption event being held at the local animal shelter. It was a pretty cool event with a lot of vendors, food trucks, and of course, a lot of animals that wanted a new home. I chose to edit this set in black and white because I wanted all the focus on the dog with no distraction, so you can get a glimpse into his/her personality and see the real emotion residing in these loving animals. I have not yet rescued a dog from a shelter, but you can be assured that I will when I am able.
Being at this event and seeing so many dogs (and other animals, but canines were dominant) that were in such ‘good condition’ with such sweet personalities blew me away. I suppose I have blocked out the reality of animal shelters, but this brought it home to me. These little furballs of joy only want to love and connect, how can they be locked up in a cage with no family to bring smiles to? As you look at these pictures, see yearning in their eyes, you won’t have to look hard. I don’t mean for this post to be a sad one, just to give a glimpse of the beautiful dogs that can use a helping hand. At the end you see a shot of a doggy and her brand new owners, happy day!
