“Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph” – Andre Kertesz
Awww! This is adorable! I love it in black and white.
Thank you so much. He really is the greatest companion.
He looks like a good time! Keep those pictures coming 🙂
Thanks Mark. It really captures his spirit, he is just crazy intense at times.
This really is a stunning shot! Hypnotic even! I’m glad you finally posted it … after all of my incessant badgering. Love you! : )
I am glad that I finally posted this photo so thank you! Love
There is so much behind those eyes! Thank you so much for commenting, I’m really glad you liked this one.
Yes, and I would pat you if I may 🙂 May I? Hard to put into words how much i love this candid dog portrait, Mark!
He is our best friend, a wonderful companion. At almost 14 years of age he still acts like a pup and if you were around he would love nothing more than another person to play with. Have a good day Paula
Awww. He is a beautiful companion and looks young too for his age.
Thank you Paula and I’ll be sure to let him know :).
Now those eyes simply melt the heart, great capture. Wanna hug that beautiful dog!
I’m calling him right now, I’ll hug him for you. Thank you so much for your heartfelt comment, Kelso will love it. Have a great day
wonderful pic and wonderful Kelso
Thank you 🙂
Why thank you. Judging from the responses I’m happy that I decided to post this one.
His eyes are wonderful and the snow (?) on his nose makes him adorably vulnerable. Lucky you Mark – you’ve captured him with the affection you obviously feel for him 😊
Hi Tina. Yes Kelso means the world to us, he is just a great companion and goes with us everywhere possible. Thank you for such a great observation and comment, you have hit the nail on the head. All the best to you today
Ohhhh, so cute….. Yes! I am looking at you!
If you look at him with a ball in hand that just drives him nuts. Thanks for stopping by and deciding to follow my blog. I hope you find some photos you like?
He is just an awesome dog. Glad you liked this 🙂
Absolute trust . You’ve caught a truly beautiful moment .
Such a great description and how very true. Thank you so much for your thoughts :).
looking so innocent and an awesome portrait 🙂
He is always so willing to pose when i have my camera out, the perfect model. And of course he is that much more willing when i have a cookie for him. See you Joshi
Awww. Such a cutie:) Super shot Mark!
Thank you Uday. He certainly has put a powerful spell on our family.
oh hello cute doggie! you are so beautiful ❤ Great photo!
Hi Corina, I’ll be sure to tell Kelso about your very nice compliment. I think all these wonderful comments are going to go right to his head – ha ha. Have a great day & hope it’s not too cold where you are from?
Awww who wouldn’t love this photo. This is soo darn cute. I love it
Thank you so much! I should post more photo’s of Kelso, he certainly is getting a lot of attention. Btw, great food photo’s on your blog. All the best Mark
“Oh, c’mon! Aren’t you going to let me in?”
Too sweet! I have an image of my now-departed Daisy looking much the same way!
Hi Carissa, thank you so much for your comment. I know how difficult it is to loose a companion, I’ve been down that road 3 times and it’s always very difficult but the joy they bring makes it all worth while! Have a great day!
HI Mark- This shot warms my heart. What a sweetie and your image not only captures his personality but the texture and details of his hair, the snow and the great shape of his head. Thank you!
Hi Jane, anytime he’s outside he is a happy dog. Hot or cold weather it doesn’t matter. Thanks for the great feedback, this shot really does show off his personality.
I live the high angle you took – it gives him such a furtive look. Kind of like you just caught him gnawing on your shoe. 🙂
Here really does have a ‘cheeky’ look but that is his normaly look when he knows I’ve got a ball for him. Thank you so much for leaving a comment – have a great day.
Merry Christmas, Mark and a happy and healthy New Year!
Thank you Paula. Just wished you a very happy and healthy new year on your blog.
Speaking of great shots….this is so wonderful! I love the expression.
Thank you so much! Kelso is my wonderful companion and always very willing subject.
Awww…that’s so sweet. It’s so nice to have a furry friend. :). And you’re welcome! 🙂
Lovely photo, you really seem to connect with your subjects by getting close. What lens do you prefer?
This dog seems to be begging for attention!
I do try to get close, im not a big fan of using a zoom lens for street work. I generally stick with a prime lens but i’m not married to any one. I use a 25mm a lot but a do use a 45 mm as well. And you are correct, this guy just loves attention, he just wants to chase his ball which i was hiding from him. Thanks again for your great comments and interest.
Getting close is great indeed. Though I have to say that a longer focal lens is great for portraits too. But you don’t want to be the creep with the long tele-lens on the streets 😉
Haha seems like nice dog!
Zoom is great for portraits indeed but as you mention having one while doing street photography really draws a lot of attention. Small camera with a prime is the way I like to move in the street.
What a fabulous face! He seems to enjoy having his photo taken!
Oh yes, he is always a very willing subject. Of course his ball was around in close proximity so he’ll do anything for his ball. I will be sure to relay your thoughts to Kelso.
Perfext shot 🙂
Thank you so much:)
What a face!
Superb detail also. Every hair is discerned.
:). Thank you so much. I’m very glad you like this one-i will be sure to pass along to my willing subject.
This is you. A true seeker, candid, a beautiful soul. You met you
Your descriptions/words are always so eloquent. Your comments incredibly flattering – thank you 🙂
Why thank you! I’ll take perfect any day 🙂
So cute! Love the light snow in the picture:)
Snow, cold it doesn’t matter to him. As long as he has his ball he will do anything and that includes being a great subject for me. I’ll let him know you think he’s cute. Thanks for stopping by.
Thank you again! And thank you for the many likes. I took a look at your work and you have some marvellous landscape captures, I hope to see more from you soon.
Such a cute expression. Delightfully captured. Those begging eyes!
Thanks Otto! He will do anything for his ball which includes patiently waiting for me to take a few photos.
Love this! As Otto says…delightfully captured!! Great clarity and charm.
This shot really does show off his charming personality, I’m glad that seems to be coming across. Thanks for leaving your thoughts and I really appreciate you looking around my blog, I noticed you hit the like button on several other images 🙂 Speak soon
Oh then you might not get me to shut up!! When I was a kid the only trouble I got into that kept me from recess was from talking too much!! Too tru!!
❤ Much love for this one. I see that you've done this before! 😉 Honoured for the follow.
