One photo a day challenge: Day 77. Comet is such a good dog…..for us. Comet is our long term foster dog through a local rescue. He really is a good boy. However, he has some behavioral challenges. Comet doesn’t get as much love on the socials or in photos because of the way we have to manage his behavior issues. He doesn’t really love most of our other dogs and cats. Even… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 63. Something I always struggle with in my photography is the conflict between trying to photograph something new and returning to the familiar. Should I look for new things to photograph or stick with things that I love? There are so many things I love in life. I always want to photograph these familiar loves. I know what to expect and they bring me peace and… 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

We were able to spend part of the day Sunday at Fulkerson Winery supporting a local rescue, Rainbow of Hope.
Today was a day for the dogs. Up in Ithaca the Ithaca Dog Fest was going on. That means that the Reynolds clan is headed to Ithaca to enjoy some 4 legged companionship. The event did not disappoint. We took Josie and Little Kira with us on this outing. We had such a good time. There were many dog related vendors there. There were also many different Shelters and Rescue groups there… Read More
When your wife has a huge heart you end up babysitting someone’s five bottle feeding foster puppies so that they can go to a wedding. So I took advantage of an opportunity to get some adorable photographs. It is hard to take a photo of these tiny puppies that isn’t cute. Adorable subjects make my job easy.
I was able to get outside and take a few photographs of our new foster dog Sammy. I also found the below about why we rescue dogs. I didn’t write it and there was no citation to it.
Josie decided to photobomb the mini portrait photo shoot I was having with Little Kira in our yard. I called Kira towards me because I wanted to get some photos of her in motion and Josie decided she would join in on the fun.
Sometimes I think that “taking photographs” of the dogs is just an excuse to “go play with dogs”. Photographing the dogs can be hard work but at the same time is fun and rewarding. I do try to play with the dogs and interact with them as much as possible because it is part of my mission as a photographer to show the dogs in as natural and comfortable pose as possible…. Read More
