This is Chase. It’s been a while since I’ve photographed him, so I thought I would do that today. He’s very hard, almost impossible to photograph, actually. He never sits still, always running full speed through the garden, and, when he does finally seem to calm down a bit, he never looks at me-he’s almost afraid of the camera. That, plus the fact that he’s mostly all black makes for a very unhappy photographer. He really is a darling dog though-such a cutie. I wish I could convey just how cute he is in pictures but it’s so difficult to do. At least he reminds me how much I have to learn as a photographer, that’s for sure.
Tomorrow is a special day for him too, though he may not know it yet. He’s getting a bath and haircut tomorrow. Yes, once again, it’s time for Chase’s trip to the groomers. Oh, he’s not going to like that. Last time, he tried to back up instead of going into the place. Backed right up and gave me that look, that frigid, “I’m so afraid. Please don’t make me go in there” look. So sorry, little buddy, but you really need a bath and a haircut, so we can find your eyes again.
In other news, I found out this week that I have work accepted into a show at the Studio2Gallery in South Austin. Called Love’s Writ, the show focuses on the nexus of art and text. It promises to be a good one too, I can hardly wait.
If you are in Austin, won’t you consider joining me for the opening? It will be January 17th from 6:30-9:30 pm at the gallery on South Larmar.
Until next time…
Congrats on your Studio2 showing..obviously I can’t be there but I hope you have fun! Will you post your photos here as well, for those who can’t attend? Chase is such a cute little fur ball! My dog is similar in color. And her hair is all over the house! She has these matted dreadlocks between her hind legs…but won’t let me snip them. Come Spring though, she is gonna get a major hosing down in the back yard!
