Monochrome : A Blog Carousel Post

Once again a group of my friends, some of the best children and family photographers that I know, have gotten together to do the Blog Carnival. You can see my prior entries here & here. This time we are posting images that coordinate with the theme: MONOCHROME.

As soon as I heard we were doing a monochrome themed post, the theme centering around shades of one color, I had an idea in mind. My subject (aka our new puppy) had a different idea when I finally took her out just for this challenge, it was done SOOOO last minute that truly this could’ve been an EPIC FAIL!  😀   I had to put my thinking cap on so I could “find” images with this theme in my recent archives.  Putting my thinking cap on resulted in a win, thankfully, crisis averted. Luckily I had taken this photo of our newest family member just over a week and a half ago.

Meet Thumper – my entry for the Monochrome Blog Carnival, I think the shades of tan & brown qualify this into the monochrome theme.

Now for the next stop on the Blog Carousel.  My friend Anna-Karin, Baton Rouge’s Children’s Photographer of choice.

    Oh I think I am in love with your puppy and those sweet eyes. Perfect example of monochrome. I wonder if we choose our pets to fit our style in life…my black dog loves to melt into all my black furniture!

    lmao – yes Dena. Perhaps we should do a pet or animals theme for an upcoming Blog Carousel?

  • Anna-Karin - May 2, 2011 - 8:25 am

    What a beautiful puppy! This is a perfect example of monochrome.

    Not only does this fit the monochrome theme beautifully, but the look you caught in his big brown puppy eyes is so sweet!! Definitely a WIN! (and not in the Charlie Sheen kind of way.)

  • Amanda Padgham - May 2, 2011 - 9:18 am

    Adorable!! Love the name too! Beautiful image. Thumper is lucky to have you:-)

  • Lisa M - May 2, 2011 - 9:23 am

    What a cute puppy with his soulful eyes. Fun play on monochrome.

  • Melody Hood - May 2, 2011 - 12:02 pm

    Gorgeous image! And gorgeous puppy too! Love the color.

  • Simone Hanckel - May 2, 2011 - 12:14 pm

    That’s a puppy? LOL Thumper is huge!! I love this shot, that look in her eyes is priceless.

  • Mary Beth - May 2, 2011 - 12:24 pm

    Oh, I think I’m in LOVE Mare! Stunning photo… perfect for the theme and I can’t help but just say awwwwwwwwwww! 🙂

  • Marianne - May 2, 2011 - 12:29 pm

    Simone, yes, she’s about six months old. We got her from one of the local Humane Society shelters. She is incredibly sweet, very patient for a puppy. She’s finally falling in line with the family. I’m so glad we got her!

  • Ruthi David - May 2, 2011 - 1:52 pm

    Just gorgeous, Mare!!! How perfect this is.

  • Danna - May 2, 2011 - 2:36 pm

    awwww look at the sweet new baby 🙂 just beautiful!

  • PamN - May 2, 2011 - 2:52 pm

    That puppy does NOT look as ornery as you claim he is!

  • Rebecca Mudrick - May 2, 2011 - 4:01 pm

    Gorgeous shot of your new baby! Those eyes are amazing … love all the browns too. So earthy and soothing.

  • Marianne - May 2, 2011 - 4:59 pm

    @Pam, she isn’t ornery, she just likes to pee on my brand new rug. LOL She’s a sweet sweet girl, probably the most mellow dog I’ve ever had. If we can get her trained to sleep past 6 a.m. I’ll never complain about her again.

  • Je Neuhaus - May 3, 2011 - 5:16 am

    Love your take on monochrome. And look at those deceptively innocent eyes ; ). Beautifully smooth colors with a luminous quality that is so pretty.

  • Samara - May 3, 2011 - 9:02 am

    I love your puppy!!! You lie, he is perfect just like the image. 😉

  • Jim Davis - July 29, 2011 - 11:53 am

    I’m a sucker for pet shots. This totally qualifies for a monochromatic theme. Wish we had taken more photos of our St. Bernard when he was a puppy!

  • art photos - August 5, 2011 - 4:14 am

    Nice image, it really fits the monochrome theme.
