My mom borrowed my good camera for a trip, so I've been working with my "old" (three years) point-and-shoot for the last few weeks. I haven't been all that happy with the pictures recently, but I was so terribly proud of this one I got of Jax today that I just had to post it. It's my new favorite shot of him.



There've been quite a few Jax threads already if you want to see more pics:

Ajax's first swim
Ajax attempts another swim
Ajax: Slavering hell puppy

I agree - it is an excellent shot! I love the small punch of colour with the flowers in the bottom left...also how the light hits his face...just beautiful!

Your two of some of my favorites around here. I am so glad that his white patch it sticking around - it's one of my favorite "secret" features on a golden. I dream of having a white spotted one someday. :)

He is so handsome!

Great photo, Brian! Ajax looks noble with that serious look on his pupper face, and also like he is a wild child who live in nature.

How is your sister's pup Ojo doing?

This is a great picture of Ajax, I can see why you love it. Such a handsome little guy and reminds me of my girl Katie that I had years ago.

Ha! He is kind of a wild child, but we've been getting him enough exercise (Comet gets a big shout out for doing his part on that one), so he currently has good outlets for that extra puppy mischief, like wading chest-deep in lakeside muck and chewing on the rotting leaves.

Ojo's doing well. He lives on the edge of a protected wetlands area, so he gets to chase rabbits (though they're working to break that habit) and play with lots of kids and dogs in his neighborhood.

Wow, even though it is a point and shoot camera the picture turned out well..... How stunning Jax looks.

Thanks. I get down on it because it's not as flexible or good with lighting as my DSLR is, but it's quite a nice tiny thing with a Zeiss lens, so it does take nice pictures.

Ha! I saw the flowers and the dappled sunlight and used it as a chance to practice his "stay" while I tried for a good picture. He's looking to the left because Comet and Andy are catching up to us. He kept his stay, though.
