I’ve known about Iheartfaces for sometime now but have never participated in any of their photo contests. I’ve thought about entering for sometime now just to get some practice and expose myself to other great photos in the same category.
This weeks photo challenge: Pet Week
I had several cute photos of Nacho and bugaboo together but I never made the time to edit any of those photos and I only had 30 minutes left to upload a photo before the deadline to enter photos ended. I was getting frustrated because I had just told myself last week that I was going to enter a photo each Monday to challenge myself and expand my photography skills and then I didn’t do it. Thankfully, I read the rules again and you could enter a photo as late as Tuesday at 9pm. Yay! But I still only had 30 minutes to enter.
I quickly went through my photos and came across a photo of Cody, a beautiful German Shepherd. Over the 4th of July we went to Myrtle Beach to visit my sister-in-law and her family as well as Man-Child’s aunt and uncle. I’m not going to go into detail about the trip tonight (future post) except to say that I fell in love with his aunt and uncles dog, Cody.
He was HUGE but so sweet and loving towards everyone. Bugaboo enjoyed Cody the most, especially when he climbed into the kiddie pool with him.
Back to the photo… I was outside in the yard taking photos of the boys and noticed Cody lying on the grass with his stick. He looked like he was posing just for me so I snapped a quick photo.
Here is the final product. I wish I didn’t wait until the last-minute but that seems to be the story of my life. So, I just went with it like usual. Like I’ve said before, time is my enemy not my friend. If I had a little more time, I would have tried to make his eyes brighter and pop out more since they’re so dark, Oh well. Next time.
Hopefully next week I’ll be more prepared for the next photo challenge.
