I had such big plans for this weeks Sunday Stills challenge. The topic is Eyes, and I immediately decided that I was going to have my daughter, Shilo, come over and I was going to shoot her using the color accent feature of my camera so that just the color of her eyes stood out and the rest was black and white. I have it pictured perfectly in my mind, but sometimes the best laid plans fall by the wayside and my plans were not even close to the best laid. Work tends to get in the way of the things I want to do, strange how that happens. I didn't even mention my plans to Shilo at all during the week, because I turned around just once and that week was gone. Turns out that yesterday she had to work all day and so here it is Sunday morning. Below you'll find two sets of eye's that presented themselves perfectly to me yesterday.
Yesterday was a gorgeous May day here on the north Oregon coast, so after a day of working in the garden, we thought a walk on the beach was in order. After our walk, we pulled chairs out of the back of the truck and sat to enjoy the waves, with a snack and a beverage, of course. Our black lab, Blackie, was looking at me with these eyes. Wondering if I was going to hand over some of that snack. He really didn't like the camera pointed at him, but sat still for this one shot. Nice doggie!
Earlier in the day, I was working on planting all of our windowboxes when the phone rang. I ran into the house and chatted away while wandering back towards the front door, which was wide open. There, standing on the sidewalk was Mr. Raccoon. I grabbed my camera and tried to get a little closer, but he decided to run up the nearest pine tree. Tree'd my first coon, I did! Our town raccoons really aren't very afraid, so he didn't climb very far, which gave me a perfect opportunity. Look at those eyes. The Masked Bandit strikes again.
I'm still planning on the photo shoot with my daughter. Thinking those are going to be some fun pictures...
