Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Family

I tried to take a picture of “my girls” this afternoon – in lousy light and with lots of distractions.  At first I was trying to get them all to have their eyes open and a pleasant look but that proved much beyond all of our attention spans.  We finally opted for the “make everyone look equally bad” shot and here it is….I’m entering this in the worst photograph category for this week’s challenge….

Dysfuntional Family Portrait

  1. Looks like she is bracing for an unwanted kiss and I do not blame her… ewww dog germs.
    Not a bad photo, good composition, I love the look on the white dogs face, as she looks longingly, waiting for her turn to be kissed.

    • Hi Maggie – the next frame was actually a great view of a playful bite on the cheek. The white speckled dog (CJ) is always amazed at what her “sister” gets away with!

    Thank you for creating a smile for the viewer and thank you to the girls for their participation☺.
