He wouldn't settle down until he had his feet firmy tucked under the throw. He is already a comedian and as you can see, one ear is up! What a fun model and only ten weeks old! The soft focus is intentional here ... it makes him look as soft as he really is.
He is a nine week old Welsh Pembroke Corgi.

Well, Hello There!
My computer fairy/muse ...
First I photographed the Amy Brown-designed ornament, then decided to practice with PS.
This photograph is dedicated to my friend Kit's sweet daughter, Mary Ellen.
I painted with a low opacity around the neckline of her dress and arm holes, attempting to give the appearance of a sheer fabric on top of her blouse. My son thought it looked like I colored outside the lines, lol, so ... whatever! Another version of her is here: http://www.pbase.com/willa/image/52625731
Three O'Clock on the Farm
Very harsh shadows everywhere! Good and bad, depending on what you're doing, I guess.
The chicken was NOT cooperating! Played around with in PS to help make her feathers stand out a bit.
I never tasted a persimmon before, but people were grabbing these things at the store like they were made of gold, so I decided to hog in on the fun and bought a few. They have an interesting taste. The skin is sort of a cross between a tomato and a nectarine, and the flesh of the fruit has a lingering flavor, not unlike melon such as honeydew or cantelope. I think they are quite delicious and very fancy! Believe it or not, the color rendition shown here is dead on ~ this is a very strange fruit indeed! Their color is just plain weird.
I really need to get the heck out of my house ...
An Irrational Moment ...

This was a challenging shot for me, because for one thing, I am EXTREMELY bug-a-phobic. Also, I was standing on a wobbly step stool, shooting through a wet screen. I like it anyway, because it looks like s/he's saying, "What are you looking at?"
The Breakfast Room
Actually it's just the eating area of the kitchen. This is a dog's eye view. The crop is a bit tighter than I would usually do, but the afternoon light was shining through the window right onto the table, chairs and picture on the wall, and I wanted to capture that. Also, I tried to position the chairs in such a way as to add perspective. I'm not sure it works, but I DO like the room, and didn't shoot anything else today. Tea time!
