What’s your favorite photo of your pet?

I take photos of my pups just about every day, but it’s only a few times a year I manage to snap one that becomes an instant favorite. On a quiet day at the beach this week I managed to capture a few simple photos which hover right near that “favorite” line for me.

I really like the simple composition of this shot, it makes Eko look quite heroic

This lounging shot is perfect for a men’s fashion magazine

And this one looks like a hunting shot from National Geographic

I shot all of the photos within a minute of each other, and when I took this last shot I could tell the moment had passed

I swung my camera to follow the pups and we were right back to “average photos with absurd faces”

This one isn’t making it in any magazine

And unless there is a “Ridiculous Dog Faces” magazine I don’t think this one has a shot either

The photos aren’t all winners, but the smiles always are!

So now for the fun part. You have to show someone only one photo of your pet – which one do you pick!? If you have a favorite photo (or photos – cheating is totally allowed) of your pet, why is it your favorite? And more importantly, if you have a link to that photo be sure to include it in the comments!

I’m interested to see the different “favorites.” I suspect the stories behind each one are just as important as the photos themselves.

  1. Sam is usually too quick to grab a camera most of the time (unless I pose him and that kind of defeats the spontaneity of the moment). Loved all your photos of Eko and Penny and find the so-called ‘ridiculous’ ones absolute stand-outs. Nothing quite like flapping gums and exposed teeth in a full run to make a fur-parent or fur-fan smile. 🙂

  2. Love the hunting one the most I think. So hard to pick a picture but I think two of my favorites of Tala on my blog are this one for her eyes even if she does look like she asking ‘yes, is there a reason you are disturbing my sunbathing?’ http://juraphotos.wordpress.com/about-tala/img_8960/ or this one where she was only 4 months old but already was very elegant stalking some bird in the desert of Sudan http://juraphotos.wordpress.com/sudan/tala/img_8331_2-3/

  3. You always take such brilliant photos. Have you got an instagram account? Whee are sure your photos would go down well over there and whee would love to see them 🙂
