An Overrated Time of Day

In our house there are the early risers–usually led by Hubble and Anna (and a reluctant me).

and then there is Jack Henry-

Even as a young puppersnapper, Jack Henry was not one to always rise with the sun. If anything, he preferred to slumber until I got up. I like to think that he appreciates the value of a good night’s sleep and not to hurry the process. Not much has changed as you can see from these photographs as I try to rouse him up for breakfast. When he hears the bowls clang, though he is on high alert and ready to go.

A Fussy Boy Among the Leaves

Sometimes ideas just do not go the way you would like–not matter how hard you try. I was trying to get Hubble to sit still and pose with some leaves, but he would have none of it. The best I could do was to hold up a few and try to get a picture that way. Sometimes, you just work with what you can–and Hubble just wanted it to be over so he could outside and play in the nice weather. So it was a short session.

We learned last weekend that “Dog at the Table #1” and “Fun House” featuring Jack Henry and Hubble respectively, were selected for the 3rd Annual Plymouth Center for the Arts, I-Phonography Now, 2016 competition! And here is a slide show featuring the chosen images. Stew beef all around!

Vimpt’d!

There is a great site we follow on Instagram called Vimpt. Each week, they select ten or so images that they like. Then they not only showcase the images on their IG account, they print those images using traditional darkroom processes such as salt prints, cyanotypes and “old skool” black and white processing and then send the image to you for free from the UK. 

As Jack Henry would say, “so why the noise?”

Hubble got Vimpt’d!

We received our salt print the other day and here is Hubble not only checking it out, but “voguing” for me in case I forgot what he did to get picked in the first place.

To find out more about Craig and his darkroom, click here. And if you are on Instagram, take a moment and check out the Vimpt account here-it is a wonderful source of inspiration. So thank you Craig and Vimpt for choosing an image of the little guy.

Hubble and the Cloak of Darkness

When you are little dog, it is awfully hard to be taken seriously as scary.

Ask Hubble.

So in the spirit of Halloween and with the help of the little guy and a piece of black cloth (aka the Cloak of Darkness) I set out to create something that shows Hubble as his secret Halloween self. It also gave me an opportunity to just experiment with some apps in ways that I had not worked with before. I added the Halloween pumpkins to soften the lines and dark colors and I guess too, to soften the image a bit.

Hubble was not happy about that. He wanted zombies.
