It has been 1 full week of my one photo a day challenge. Everything has been going well. Some days I feel more motivated than others. But that is the whole point of this project. Stop relying on feeling motivated or inspired. Just do the work. Do it every day. Build a Practice. Each day when I work on creating my daily photo there is more than one image created. Hopefully each… Read More
One photo a day challenge day 7. I headed down to my office tonight to perform my daily practice of one photo a day. Our dog Colton followed me to my office and laid on the floor and whined at me as I got things ready for some photography. Clearly a sign that he wanted to be my subject for today. I take a lot of photos of our dogs. This project… Read More
Today is Day 4 of the one photo a day challenge. Tonight I managed to squeak in some photos literally right before going to bed and then writing this post. We were getting ready for bed. I knew I needed to take a photo still tonight. No idea what I was going to photograph. Then all the dogs on cue went to the bedroom and got up on the bed for bedtime…. Read More

After a day of driving around visiting multiple sites we wanted to spend the entire day all at one place. We decided to spend the day at Taughannock Falls State Park. If you are not familiar with Taughannock Falls State Park its most well-known feature is its namesake, Taughannock Falls which plunges 215 feet past rocky cliffs that tower nearly 400 feet above the gorge.
With the format of our vacation being composed of individualized day trips we really wanted to make sure we found ways to include our dogs in our vacation. Two challenges that arise with that is number one, one of our dogs has some issues with her hind legs so she cannot do much extensive hiking with us like she used to, and two it has been and is forecasted to be quite… Read More
We recently did something that from the outside probably seemed rather rash to most people. We woke up one day with no immediate plans to get a puppy and the next day we had added a new puppy to our family. While it was sudden and unexpected it was not exactly unplanned. It was less rash from inside our little bubble than it may seem for anyone seeing our updates on social… Read More
If you told me that my adventure would begin with a 6+ hr drive each way to meet two dogs and possibly, just possibly adopt them if all went well, I would never have believed you. But that was what we did and that is how Josie came into our lives. It was one of the best days of my life. Josie fit right into our home, our heart, and our lives…. Read More
I have seen this breed of dogs a few times in the past but at this years Wine Country Circuit Dog Show at Sampson State Park I totally fell in love with these Finnish Lapphunds.
I love this series of photos of this American Staffordshire Terrier moving through the weave poles during agility competition at the Wine Country Circuit Dog Shows at Sampson State Park in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate, New York.
