Saki is a hoot. From early on, he began to mimic eye expressions. When he sees me smile at him, he will half close his eyes to return it. When I give him a big “aw,” he’ll give me his puppy-dog eyes. This time, those puppy-dog eyes happened when I asked him to look at me for this photo.
I haven’t played with landscape shots much, so I thought I’d give it a try. Out of the three I took, this was the only one that wasn’t drastically foreshortened. Perhaps it was because the cloud passing overhead and the resulting variation in lighting that rescued this shot.
The third photo is yet another variation on lighting, this time converting harsh noon sunlight into a warm, highly contrasted photo.
