On my Flickr- 52 Weeks for Dogs Group - there are occasional challenges, you don't have to participate in them, but I wanted to give this a try. From the Hip means to shoot the photo without looking- generally at Hip level for most dogs. With my short dogs I've discovered that it is more like knee level. It is MUCH harder than you'd think- I get LOTS of crap. Fuzzy, No Dogs, Pieces of Dogs, Out of Focus...you name it and it happens when you aren't looking!
I did manage to get a few today though that I am considering for my challenge.
This is my favorite, but she's not quite in focus...I actually got this one yesterday
and these are the "runners up"
Which one do you like the most???
oh- and I ALMOST caught Vito's smile....
one day I'll get it...it truly is the cutest thing ever.
