Dog Portraits and Reflection

August 25, 2017  •  7 Comments

This week's pet photography theme is "Reflection". What comes to your mind when you think of this word?  Several thoughts came to mind for me - reflection in water, reflection in mirror, reflection in glass, hmmm - how hard is this week's theme going to be?  Then I thought of a photograph I took of Jimbo several years ago on our first road trip - we went to Nashville, Tennessee. Yep, took us 2 days to get there and we both had a wonderful time meeting a cousin that I had found doing my family history.  I remember one morning I took Jimbo out for his walk as we walked around the grounds of the Grand Ole Opry.  Eventually, Jimbo decided to lay down and take a break - so here I am hanging on to Jimbo with a six foot leash, a long camera lens and wondering what to do while he enjoys the sunshine.  I aimed the camera at Jimbo, I couldn't get much of him as the lens was to long, but I caught a wonderful closeup of part of his head and his eye - the cool thing?  You can see the reflection in his eye of what he is seeing!  Blue sky, trees - I'd never have thought about this until I looked close.

Here's another one.  In this one you see the sky, trees and me aiming a camera at him.

Lovely! I have several shots of my boy's eyes like that. They are truly beautiful. It is so fun to capture such details, from the fur to the eye lashes and even what our pets see around us. Well done!
I love these shots of Jimbo!!
Gorgeous! Love seeing that blue sky and the trees in Jimbo's eye! Awesome captures!
I love these! I have many images of Sapphires eyes like this. I adore gazing into those little eyes. Well done!

Reflections in a dog's eyes are my favorite kind! Well done.
