It’s time for another Brenda Photo Challenge! The theme this time is Dog Daze of Summer. I had to wrack my brain to figure out how to best capture this theme. But it turns out that I took an image during our Alaska trip that sums it up perfectly!
When we were visiting the kennel at Kantishna Road House in Denali National Park, I happened to spot a charming scene with Reba, a lead sled dog. She was comfortably resting in her wooden doghouse, with her head at the doorway, thoughtfully pondering the swarm of photographers who had descended upon the kennel for a photo shoot. Gentle as a breeze in personality, I immediately recognized that Reba appreciated simple beauty. Though there was a well-worn dirt track that circled her house, she made sure that she didn’t disturb a dandelion plant growing right outside her doorstep. Sure enough, I caught Reba admiring this iconic summer wildflower bloom and I quickly snapped the shutter. Priceless!
And just for the fun of it, here is a black and white version with the flower colorized.
I hope that you will visit the challenge’s web link and check out the contributions of the other participants. And please continue to keep Miz Brenda in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time for her and her family.
