LOVE her work!

One of my favorite dog photographers …

Elke Vogelsang lives in Germany and takes animal portraits. Her unique pictures have captured me and I cannot seem to get enough of them. It’s possible that you have seen her work as it has been shown on websites including Huffington Post. It is also possible that you have seen her book, Nice Nosing You, or in magazines such as Bark Magazine.

Here are a couple samples of her work:

Feelin’ gooooooood

It seems ever since I posted that I was going to work more on blogging, my life has been super busy. But that always seems to always happen, right? I had a handful of errands to run almost every day of the week and not only that but I felt GOOD. Occasionally something would pop up with my health to which I would get some rest, but the next day I would get up and be productive once again. I was so productive that I began to question it since that rarely happens in my life. Normally because of my fatigue, it can take some time to finally perform a full task. I usually do a little at a time and divide that time up between days. I’m not lazy, the act just exhausts me. So either it’s the nice weather, or the fact that I admitted to the world that I was going to work harder, I am happy that I am getting things done. 🙂

When going on errands (and if the weather is decent), I try to bring Storm with me. Not only does it get her out of the house, but it helps wear her out (hahaha!). She sits in the front passenger seat and quietly waits for me to return. People usually walk by and laugh as she sits like a human just chillin’. If I get an extra burst of energy I will stop by a park so she can get out of the cramped car and check out unfamiliar smells. One day, I stopped a bike trail location that had a bridge and took a couple pictures of her. I want to stop by again in a few months when there is more green showing, center the picture a more to my liking and take off her leash. I’m impressed she did well with these shots as there was a nearby runner she was trying to say hello to.

So yeah that’s it. Nothing exciting happening but getting plenty done. 🙂

 

"Mom, I need to go slobber on that lady before she starts running again!"
“Mom, I need to go slobber on that lady before she starts running again!”

I was scratching her arm for a bit and she started to fall asleep sitting up. Hahaha

Wordless Wednesday – Tuckered Out

My sweet angel… I wasn’t sure which edit to use today. This is the first time I used HDR on one of my shots. I love other people’s shots with HDR. But for some reason I almost like my non-HDR more. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m not use to working with the HDR? Anyway, enjoy!
