Monthly Themes: February--Loving Life

The February theme was Loving Life and I can't think of a better feature than a dog with her ball. My friend Suzanne, saves old dogs from shelters and gives them a new life through her nonprofit, Retired Retrievers. Sometimes they stay in her own home and many times she finds other incredible people who take in a retired retriever so they can be loved and live in comfort for whatever time they have left. I get to have the pleasure of helping her with her Instagram account.

A few of these amazing dogs end up living with Suzanne and her very accommodating husband, and three of them are about to embark on a RV trip around the country.

I recently visited the entire family in Savannah and was able to capture a few photos of the dogs and the ruler of the house, Gonzo.

This month's theme is street photography, and while my selection may not seem like it fits the definition of street photography because it is not outdoors or on a street. But it does fit this definition from Eric Kim in that it's candid and it's in a public place:

I also appreciate his final point: "Definitions, shmefinitions... I recommend giving the middle finger to definitions--and not worrying about it. Who cares what people classify your type of photography to be? As long as you enjoy the photos you are taking--isn't that enough?"

This image is from a dance recital I attended recently while visiting friends whose three daughters all performed in many magical ways. This sweet moment was captured during the finale when all the dancers return back on stage to be honored for their hard work throughout the year. You can see how much the littles love the older dancers and how much they…

A Moment in Time Repeat: Midnight

Molly, Sarah and I are back at it with a yearly photo challenge, and repeating a favorite from a few years ago. We'll be taking a photo at every hour of the day (two/month) starting at Midnight. Also joining us this time is Katie and my Mom. Looking forward to seeing all the different views around the state and world as Sarah travels.

Here's my midnight photo, at the Alameda Navy Base, one of my favorite old buildings sitting on the bay, and all lit up at night.

A Moment in Time Repeat: 1 AM

For 1 am, I ventured outside again, but just to the corner. At the corner is an auto shop and they have this one older section of the lot that just seems to serve as a roof for old cars, but it looks pretty cool at night.
