Classic Connor

I was working in the kitchen and went into the living room to get something. There was a beam of sunlight shining down on Connor, lighting him in such a lovely way. It reminded me of some of the old Dutch Masters paintings with the clear light. I grabbed my camera and took a couple of shots.

This is my favourite.Classic Connor 008

  1. This photo warms my heart. I also have a yellow lab who is getting that distinguished white face. He also has a way of finding and lounging in any ray of sunshine. Thanks for the post!

  4. It does look like a Dutch master. Perhaps, you could have an oil painting made of that image.

    He's a very handsome boy.

  6. Nice capture Meg;
    Hard to do when getting pets to pose, sneeking up on them is the trick!
    I seem to wrestle to get just the right pic of a clients pooch.

    Thank goodness for photo editing!

  9. Connor is one hug-able looking dog. That photo would make such a gorgeous painting. A few wks ago Diane Dorrans Saeks wrote a post about an artist that specialized in pets. The woman captured the beauty and soul of her subjects. I remember Diane wrote how the artist would look into the animals eyes. I love dogs, mine is my best buddy hands-down. x

  10. Connor is quite the handsome boy in repose. All those lovely shadings are quite remarkable. Do hope he has recovered from whatever was ailing him.
