It’s a big day, folks– I’m entering my first photo contest. It’s always a little frightening to have something you created evaluated critically! But, constructive criticism is the best way to grow. One of my biggest fears as a photographer is that I’ll surround myself with people who say “Wow, your images are beautiful!” instead of pushing myself to ask for skilled and honest critique of my work. My former boss, a super-amazing photographer, is really great at this. He is always pushing himself to enter contests and to have his work evaluated by the photographers that he admires. I’m trying to follow in his footsteps!
In light of that, I entered a contest by American Photo Magazine. You can see the entries they’ve received so far here, including mine. Wish me luck!
Ok, I finally found the rest of my pictures of Lea! If you didn’t see my first post about this little two-pound pup, you can see it here.
I’ve been posting lots of dog pictures lately! I do love dogs. . .
Speaking of loving dogs, here’s an interesting fact about the adorable little girl in these pictures. She’s allergic to dogs (and lots of other things), and when they lick her, she breaks out in (mild) hives. But, she so enjoys a good sloppy dog kiss that she tells her mom she’d rather the dog kiss her and have the hives than miss out on the kiss. How sweet is that?!?
Seriously, did I not post pictures of Leanidas yet?!? I found this one, and can’t seem to locate the rest of them right now, but I had to go ahead and share her with the world.
Our friends recently got Leanidas for their two girls. ”Lea” is a teeny, tiny Yorkie Poo. When she is full-grown, she will tip the scales at somewhere around two pounds. (!)
This picture actually makes her look bigger than she really is. Her name was chosen by the only man in her house, to make her sound bigger (and tougher) than she really is. She’s a cute little dog who is going to grow up in a home with lots of love and attention.
