A photo I see as a parallel to life itself, and my own in particular; A fuzzy past, an unclear future, with a very narrow depth-of-field relative to true vision and understanding. This should not be interpreted as a negative, for it is not. It is extremely positive, and realistic. There was a point when the future was ‘certain’. Then wisdom struck, experiences occurred, and things were not what they seemed, what they would become. Things are great now. Challenges never cease. The future ain’t what it used to be. That’s probably a good thing. 🙂
I’m usually a studio and nature guy – www.chiaroscurophoto.com – but I’ve been making the foray into photojournalism of late. This brief incident fell into my lap when a vehicle in the neighbor’s driveway caught fire. Mad props to the crew of the Rhinelander, WI Fire Dept. for getting there quickly and saving the home. Story as reported at www.wjfw.com by Mr. Lane Kimble:

Lily is a goof, like a lot of dogs, and pretty much every Boxer I’ve ever met. She sleeps on her back a lot, waits for the cat to enjoy her food and water before she partakes, and sleeps directly on top of houseguests. She’s a favorite subject of mine because of her idiosynchratic, goofy nature, as well as her uncanny ability to actually perk up and recognize that the camera puts her at the center of attention. She just celebrated her 2nd birthday by sharing cake and Slim Jims™ with me. Her mom was not impressed, worried that the Slim Jims™ would wreak gastrointestinal havoc (they didn’t), and upset that “sharing” cake actually meant Lily standing against the countertop to lick frosting off a cake actually prepared for MY birthday, which was the following day. I love Lily.
Maggie is a very photogenic pup. She’s extremely high-energy and will run until her legs get noodly and she falls over. She’s also the only one that can wear out my boxer.
