With the recent loss of my husband, January feels daunting. The cold, the dark only adds to the aloneness.
I have decided that if I am going to get through this I have to focus on the positive and on the things that give me comfort… two of these being photography and my dogs.
The dogs remind me that happiness can be found in the moment. The camera encourages the search for beauty.
With this in mind, I have joined a couple of Flickr groups to provide motivation and camaraderie. The first one is “12 Months For Dogs“. Every month I will submit one photo of Lacie, one photo of Odin and one photo of the two of them together, three projects in total.
The nice perk about the group is the expectation to participate in and enjoy the photography and dogs of the other members. Already this has proven to be an enjoyable endeavour.
Here are the photos for this month:
Odin… all grown up.
Lacie… with snowflakes on her nose and eyelashes
Odin and Lacie together… with the focus on Lacie Girl.
