BLANK SLATE - Dog Photography 52 Week Project: Week 1

Blank slate is the theme for the dog photography 52 week project in week 1. If you're a dog photographer and you're new to the 52 week project, welcome. It's a great group and I love participating in this every week although I might not participate every week this year. I'm pretty sure I didn't miss a week last year but I'm going to cut myself some slack this year and be okay if I miss a week every now and then.... I think. 

Here's a bit about me: My name is Kim and I discovered photography late in life. I bought my first camera in 2014 when my black lab Buddy had a health scare. I wanted to make sure I captured some nice photos of him and I thought if I bought a nice DSLR, I'd be a professional photographer. I was sooo naive. I had no idea there was much to learn about photography.

Instagram has something called #2017bestnine. It's a site anyone with an instagram account can go to and type in your instagram name and find out which 9 photos got the most likes in 2017. Here's mine

Moose and his Next Best Friend

We have started the search to find Moose his next best friend. Sadly and very unexpectedly, Willow passed away last week. We'd discussed getting a 3rd dog occasionally over the last year because we felt like Moose would do best when there is always someone home to keep him company but we never did it. So now we are looking for his next best friend.
