We've reached the Century mark with our photo challenges! I think it's time for a little celebration :) For this week, I encourage you to take the camera and shoot something new. Shoot whatever pleases you, whatever inspires you. It's a week long challenge that starts today and ends on Saturday, June 17th, at 9pm your local time. You may share up to two new images. If you don't get an opportunity to shoot this week, it is permissible to post two shots from this month.

Looking forward to seeing your images.

and for #2: I don't have a macro lens- just 2 kit lenses: my 18-55 and 55-200. But I love macro photography. It's been worth it learning how to make my kit lenses work for me within my limitations as a photography. this was taken with the 55-200 standing back. :)

If I may comment, what I love about this is the dynamic range. I suspect it may have been shot either early morning or late in the day, and the leaves on the trees in the background and the horse's ears and nostrils reflect this very nice dynamic contrast. While his/her eye falls in the shadow that dominates the center of the image, the bridle metal elements definitely stand out.

What's his/her name? Looks to be a happy horse in a very nice environment.

it is a nice place John. To answer you question- I took it around 6:00 at night. I made sure I put him in the field so that the sun was at the right angle.

Lovely left-looking sillouette, compelling composition, and frankly funny name, I must say; having found myself in similar situations after having had a hard night previous :wink: And the way the weeds frame it on the right along with the stringy plant texture against the rounded body of your dog. It's all very compelling.

Bambi never did tell us her horse's name, just that it is a heeeee. With respect to your dog, what is her name? Inquiring minds want to know.

Love it, Thuder; feel like we are there; I'd have guessed the name, but thanks for not making us ask :).

And what a wondreful macro of a jumping-spider-dog, I must say! Where did you find the miniature doll/dog house??

This is a win-win, Scott: The first one motivates me to go see an impressionist exhibition and the second one makes me swear off the booze. I'm gonna go with the first one.

Ah yes, the often heard but rarely seen barking spider :lol:

And where does one find the barking spider? On the roof, roof, roof, of course :)! (who said a pun is the lowest form of humor?)

But with that said, I'm off; on the road again also. Can't wait to see what you all will come up with between now and next Saturday. I'll try to post my second one in transit if it should happen to occur.

Ohhhh! You are killing me! I'm here eating hospital food and I had to see your mouth watering ribs on the grill! These look really good! Enjoy :D

I am firing up the grill tomorrow. Rib eye steaks medium well. Hopefully no rain. That's what's in store for tmrw before game 6. I can't wait!

LOL John, thanks for your kind comments on my photo! My doggies name is Henry, a name which I don't like much. He is nearly 7 years old and he was given to us about a year ago. We'd like to rename him to Yoda (because he has Yoda ears lol) but have been adviced that
will confuse him, so sticking to Henry for now...

Well, erm…*blush* ahhhh….the phrase "barking spider" is in reference to an unexpected and noisy release of man-made methane that gets blamed on the never seen arachnid. A play on words linked to John's jumping spider dog.
