Pet Faces

The latest photo challenge at I Heart Faces is the theme "Pet Faces."  Although we are all animal lovers, we do not have a pet.  We attempted owning a dog, but that didn't last very long.  The sweet dog we adopted did not like our cramped yard, and she became seriously overprotective while I was pregnant (really, a two year walking along the sidewalk did not pose a threat to me).  Thankfully, she found a good home at my parents' house.

Since we are pet lovers and need a "furry face fix" quite frequently, we are on first-name basis with dogs from our neighborhood, we explore the woods in search of birds, squirrels, bugs, frogs, turtles, worms, deer, and foxes, and we go to the local farm.

Peanut was nervous around the very large horses at the farm, but when she was finally feeling brave, I was able to snap this picture.

I love any photos with children and horses, they are such big animals, but sweet. My son LOVES my horse, and my horse in turn loves him. Hank (my horse) even keeps his head low so my son can pet him, ah so sweet.

Your photographs are breathtaking! I love the way you capture the light in children's eyes! May I ask what kind of camera you have?

AJay said...

Thank you so much for all the kind compliments!

Militarywife, I use a Nikon D90, which they no longer make. But, you can find used ones pretty easily (they only just stopped production this year...I think). There are several reputable sources that sell used photography equipment. If you are interested in the shops I suggest, just let me know. :)

Yes, I am interested! Let my know when you have the chance.:) Thank you!

Militarywife,
Here are the stores I have used and recommend:

It's nice, when buying used equipment, to know that someone has checked it out and offers a warranty. That being said, I bought my first SLR at a pawn shop and it was a workhorse.

I hope you find a camera that you like.
