I’ve decided to do a little monthly round-up of some of my favorite photos I’ve been taking for Project365, so here is the first installment: my Top Five* photos from January. The entire set so far is here.
*”Top Five” status determined solely by my own personal preference, because I am in charge here.
[3/365] The Goldfinch
I loved this book and I plan to do a little review of it here soon. For now, please enjoy the photo, also featuring my cozy fireplace and coffee. Pretty nice trifecta there.
[7/365] Fireside Hound
How could I resist a cute photo of my dog, getting nice and toasty by the fire? When he does this, I like to refer to him as a “roasted weenie.”
A beautiful blue sky in my neighborhood. I just liked the shapes here.
[14/365] Um, excuse me?
It’s a recent development, my cat and dog interacting with each other. It’s rare to be able to photograph them together. While they certainly don’t go in for the cute, snuggly, pile-o-fur photos, I can occasionally capture the two old adversaries sharing space. I liked this one with the cat in her sunbeam and the dog, in silhouette, creepin’ up on her.
Note: here you can also observe another rare occurrence: Egon “standing” and “walking” on his back legs — they occasionally sort of move spastically and it looks like he’s walking, even though he still has no control over them and no sensation.
I crossed the street to take a photo of this fire hydrant because it stands alone on the edge of the woods, so I thought might make for a possibly interesting contrast photo — you know, like a man-made object in the middle of a wild-looking environment? But then I noticed the carefully placed rock sitting on it and wound up photographing that instead.
