The World of Hubble

Since the beginning of the new year, I have been doing a Dog-a-Day project on Instagram (as some of you are already aware). I was inspired in part by Sally Muir’s delightful book A Dog A Day in which she sketched, painted, inked and printed the various dogs she encountered in all their wonderful, amazing, and delightful ways. I have made it two months so far mostly posting photographs of Jack Henry and Hubble. It has been an enlightening, if somewhat scary undertaking. 365 projects can be daunting anyway, but when you begin to narrow the parameters it can become even more so. I found myself having to be more flexible and aware of possibilities rather than trying to stage a shot every single day. I do not have that much patience and neither do the dogs. So it has been more a combination of the everyday, the unexpected, and the more formal.  Some hits and some misses and a lot in between.

My hope is that like Sally Muir, I will begin to take more chances–not just with my guys–but with other dogs. And who knows? Perhaps I may be so bold as to try working with other media and mediums.

The photographs shown here feature some of Hubble’s various wanderings and activities in the course of this project.  If interested in seeing more, check us out at @littledogslaughed

  1. I have been able to enjoy some of your Dog-a-Day images while we were in port earlier this year but I have been relatively quiet on IG as we’ve made our way across the Indian. Such a treat to return here and see more beautiful captures of one of my favorite crew members Master Hubble. Love your work as always. Off to the next post where I see my other favorite mariner Master Jack Henry has made an appearance.


Arf! Arf!
