A whole lotta Stella
Seems Stella has made her way into a lot of my photos so far in 2012. If you aren’t a fan of dogs my apologies.
Seems she’s also made it into my heart.
What!? You say? You’ve had her almost two years!
That’s just the way it works with me. She’s gone from a burden… chewing kids toys, limiting my time away from the house, biting and chewing all of us… to now being a favorite companion. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always loved her but now I really really like her.
I remember the same thing happened with Logan who we had for 17 1/2 years. And, really, if I’m honest it happened with my kids too. Once the physical challenges of the first two years were behind us we could really enjoy each other, I could really enjoy them.
It also helps that she’s such a willing companion for my photography habit.
In this shot I was using the tripod and 10-second timer. I ran to position myself and she joined in the fun, even turning around to look toward the camera.
Another version in black and white (I was playing with the rule of thirds) and you can see her in the distance still running. At some point she turned around wondering why I had stopped.
If you aren’t a fan of dogs just be thankful that you don’t follow me on Instagram where there’s almost always a daily photo of Stella.
Just look into those eyes, how can you resist?
