"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

What is He Thinking?

What Is He Trying to Say?


Murphy the Airedale. Again.  I was sifting through files and saw him looking at me.  This was shot at Thanksgiving time in Hardy, Virginia.  The day we were attempting the Christmas card photo with the kids all in red.

    He is thinking: “Doesn’t it seem like yesterday that we were trying to take Christmas photos and no one was cooperating?”

    He was thinking “Bummer, I have to go back to Ohio tomorrow, I just love chasing the horses and cows in Pap’s backyard. My visit here go so fast.” Or he could be thinking “tomorrow we go home and I am going to have to squeeze into my little spot and listen to Maura cry most of the 6 1/2 hour trip.”

  7. He looks very serious. I’m pretty sure whatever is on his mind is pretty darn important…

    Love those dog shots.

  16. Murphy is a little grumpy. Why is she looking at the cows and not me? A great picture caught with a sharp eye. A fun moment.

  17. I love the stance of the little miss in the red dress – those hands on those hips!
