Ready for Her Close Up

When I was taking pictures of Maisie yesterday, I had the opportunity to get a few close up photos.  I am always touched by not just the different perspective they provide, but also the trust involved.  The bond between us is what allows me to be so very close to Maisie without her reacting at all (even when I have my pesky camera in hand).

It didn't hurt that she was sleepy after daycare (and getting acclimated to the new bed).

She's actually resting her snoot on my knee in this one.

And this may be one of my all-time favorite Maisie pics...she just seems so peaceful.  Also, it can be tricky trying to capture any expressiveness in her dark eyes (without getting the evil blue glow), but they look so bright and shiny here.

Although this post is 100% sincere, hope you have a happy and safe Happy April Fool's Day!  ;)

We love the close up photos! I can't seem to get that close to any of our pups without them trying to smell the camera.

that definitely happens to me too. as I said, it helps if she's kinda tired. ;)

I love seeing the pictures at her level; it lends a whole new perspective!

they're not as cool as your dogs eye view camera though!

Love it! Think I'll have to start getting on the floor more. My favorite Buster pic is a floors-eye-view of him and the other pups, maybe it's a black dog thing.

you might be right, maybe it is a black dog thing. it's tough to see the detail of her features in photos sometimes...hence (as I'm sure you know) the increased difficulty of getting black dogs adopted!
