Two of the categories of pictures I've always liked, perhaps understandably, are portraits of famous photographers, and pictures of people taking pictures. Related, but not quite the same thing.
I can't make a "Random Excellence" out of this, but check out this shot by "TrevTheBrit." Made me smile—I even like the pigeon! There's a lot going on in that shot. It has character. Everything seems a bit off balance.
To add a little color to all the "gray matter" recently (text, I mean), and to keep his fans happy, here's the latest snap of the charismatic canine:
Butters seems to love it when the ball plummets down into the snow and disappears. He starts sniffing the ground frantically while his oversized tail waves broadly back and forth as if to say, "I got this, I got this."
His latest quirk—and believe me, this dog has plenty of quirks—is that he doesn't see any reason why we can't go outside and play fetch even though it's night. Pitch dark outside, and he's raring to go play and bugging the heck out of me until I finally relent. I toss the ball for him trying to keep it near enough to the barn light so he stands a chance of following it. He does well—dogs see well in low light—but eventually he loses it anyway, and then we both go searching. He can't smell it and I can't see it in the dark, so we both wander ineptly around in the backyard in erratic circles, around and around, until one of us eventually stumbles on the darn ball.
Such is my life.
I notice that when I work on pictures lately I make a color version for everybody else and a black-and-white version for me. I don't really need to show anybody the B&W versions. But they make me happy. This one, I admit, works better in color.
