Writing Assignment - Jump!

Click HERE to join in this weeks writing assignment!

This week I decided to do something rare take the easy route with Kat's writing assignment. Oh, who am kidding! I always take the easy route.

I am going to share the best picture I took last month and explain why it is my favorite. Now, I am not sure if this is the best picture I took, but it is different from all of the holiday pictures from last month.


My girls love to make our dogs jump. Actually the whole family finds it very funny to watch the dogs spring up in the air for a treat. We call them circus dogs when they perform for us!

I took this picture of Molly jumping in the late afternoon when the sun was going down and I absolutely love how I captured her flying shadow on the wall.

When I look at the photo I'm not sure if I should look at the dog or her shadow!

Nice picture!!!! I love when it looks like pics have been photo shopped and they haven't. This one kind of has that effect.

The Blonde Duck said...

I love the shadow! It's really cool!

Carrie said...

What a neat picture.

Kimber said...

That is so very cool. I don't know which to look at either. I have 1 that could do that if I could catch her, 1 that is too fat to do that, and the other is a dachshund and I suppose I don't need to explain that one. As for the big outside dog - all he likes to do is bring dead animals or animal carcasses up to my front porch.

Jade said...

Saundra@ItalianMamaGoneCrazy said...

It's like he's Peter Pan and he's playing with his shadow!!!

It also looks like that shadow is of another, smaller dog!

That is a great shot, Michelle!

That's a great photo. I love the shadow. It looks like it should be in a book of photographs.

Mama Kat said...

It's funny because the actual dog looks really big in that picture...and then the shadow is just a little thing. This is great!

Live.Love.Eat said...

THAT is too cool!!!!!

Hi! Just back from vacation and getting caught up with your blog! Commenting on this one because I LOVE THIS PHOTO! Aweseome!

And the garden ones were wonderful too. I love the gazing ball one -- I knew they were good for something!! (My husband and I mocked my father-in-law for having one all the time.)

And I know what you mean about feeling old at 41 -- I probably would have had the same reaction.

And the man pantyhose???? What are they thinking????? I mean I don't think most women want to wear pantyhose. But I must admit that design was kind of cool. I can't imagine men wearing pantyhose unless with shorts and why would they want to wear hot pantyhose with shorts? Very odd.

Lindsay said...

Very neat picture! If you don't shoot pictures professionally, you should.

Mason and Terri's Mom said...

LOOOOOVE the shot! perfect time of the day...I want to go outside and mimic this picture. lol!!
