This week's assignment was fairly straight forward. Take a picture of something and have nothing else in the frame. I wasn't sure what to shoot this week at first. I figured I would get some shots of the dog or the boy. Early in the week I took a couple of photos of the dog. I tried to take a couple of the boy but he had a case of the croup and then just wasn't in the mood to sit for another of Daddy's photos later in the week once he got better.
I hadn't looked at my photos of the dog and I wanted to try a couple of other things. My lovely wife took full advantage of the day after Valentine's Day sales and got some really nice roses for more than half off. I thought that might look nice in some nice window light. They ended up nice but boring.
I was going through the photos of the dog I had taken earlier. Just as I was editing my favorite of them, a headshot. My wife walked in and saw it and, almost, shouted "He's so cute! I love that photo of him!' She STRONGLY suggested that should be the photo of the week. Who am I to disagree? The only question was color or black and white.
While I personally loved the black and white more I went with the color based on my photo editor's (the wife) strong suggestion.
You can see the posting on Instagram below.
Once I posted the photo in the Facebook Group I'm glad I took my wife's suggestion on which photo to choose. There were several photos of close ups of flowers that were nice though boring. There were a several that posted photos of their pets that focus on just having the face or the eyes of their pet none were quite like mine. I was glad that I had something a little more unique.
