Dog Portraits - it's all in the details

September 08, 2017  •  2 Comments

I'll admit that this week has been a bit of a whirlwind as we returned from a long weekend away and we had Hurricane Irma facing down on it's way to Florida.  At the time of this writing, I have no clue what the next few days will hold for us and I pray that everyone will be safe and we will not face a similar situation as what Houston, Texas and surrounding towns and cities are currently trying to begin the recovery process.

So this week's theme for our Pet Photography blog is "Details".  Now, I don't know about you, but when I think about this particular word in relation to pets, it's all about the details.  What are the special things for this particular pet?  I know my first dog, I remember had these cute little fur swirls on the backs of her legs - I'll remember those forever - it's a detail.

As for Abby, I'll probably always remember the white spot she has on the back of her neck.  It's a special marking that a lot of dogs don't have, and when we look at her, often don't see, but sure enough - there is a white spot!

As for Jimbo, I'll always remember this guy coming to us with the small scars of previous wounds. As a street dog in the Bahamas, I'm sure he had to spent a lot of time trying to find food and survive - and right now, he is very happy to be inside a cozy home.  His elbows have places the fur never grew back along with the little nicks from scapes of a previous life.  I like the detail of his fur and curves in this photograph that show a piece of Jimbo.

Or maybe it's all about the paws - as Abby lays down on top of her leash.

Or maybe the endless curiosity of a young dog as she see something for the first time. 

Up close, this is what Abby has spotted.

That's it for details as we wait for the latest on Hurricane Irma - by the time this blog post goes live on Friday morning, we may know what Irma thinks she is doing!

So glad you remained safe through Irma! Yay! Great detail images! My favorite is the paw on the leash! :)
Love your take on the details! Especially the one with Jimbo's paw curved back. I've been watching the coverage on Irma, I hope you are out of harms way!
