Fun Monday - Photo


This is what Angela wants, this week:

Show me your favourite photograph and tell me why it's your favourite.

It can be one you've taken yourself or one someone else has taken, a snapshot or a more professional image. Is there a story behind it? Do you love it for the memories it gives or just because it's pleasing to the eye?


I had a hard time choosing one. My house is full of art, and much of it is photography. So, I limited it to my photos, then I narrowed it down to three. Sorry Angela, it's the best I could do.






This beautiful girl, I snapped at a baseball game, with her Dad's permission.

I love the timeless quality of the shot.



This is Dudley's nose.

This photo always makes me laugh, that's why I like it so much.

Laughter is good.







I love this photo, of the center of a white rose, because of it's mysterious quality.

What is it? Would you have guessed,if I hadn't told you?

I like it both in color and black and white.

These are lovely photos. You must have an artistic eye to dtermine what will make a great picture. Your picture of the little girl is outstanding. I frequently like the drama of shadows in black and white photographs.

They are all lovely but for me I think Dudley's nose pipped the post. I would not have guessed that was a rose.

The center of the rose in color is a winner! Excellent color combo.

I can't believe I'm going to say a puppy's nose made me say "awwww" more then that beautiful sweet child, but there's just something about Dudley's picture that makes me want to grab his nose and kiss it!

Alas ... I couldn't limit myself to one photo either ... couldn't even narrow it down to 3 as you did. I love all of your choices, but it's your little doggie's nose that made me laugh and stole my heart today ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Alison said...

I love Dudley's nose. Give him a kiss for me!!!

Faye said...

Dudley's nose! What a fortunate time to have the camera at hand. abd don't forget his lips--mine would be snarling if I got that close with a camera.

I remember some of your other artwork when we were talking walls. How do you decide what to display? just rotate?

Dudley always cracks me up. :) After the day I've had I needed a smile. :)

Love the little girl, timeless indeed and no I would have never guessed a rose, although I would have known it was a flower. :)
