One photo a day challenge: Day 330. Hope everyone had an enjoyable Thanksgiving yesterday. Colton here was acting like he spent the day gorging at a feast himself. All he could muster for a photo was this wink. You can even see the movement of the muscles around his eyes as he opened and closed them.
One photo a day challenge: Day 327. Black and white photos without being in black and white. If you want to create a black and white photograph there are two basic ways to do that.

Dogs are amazing creatures and capturing phots of them performing at their best… Read More
