Dog Days of Summer {Personal Photography}

It's summer in Texas... it's hot.  Today it is 106 outside.  I have lived here my whole life... someday I swear I am moving to San Diego!  Until then... I'll try to stay cool inside.  Hope you are doing the same!

My dog, Chloe, was doing her usual lounging around.  Her day consists of sleeping and barking at the mailman.  Must be nice to be so relaxed, Chloe!  But since I had her cornered I thought I would try out a little fun with my Nikon 135mm F2 DC lens... it is a defocus control (hence the DC) so I experimented with a little rear defocus for this doggy portrait.  I think I like it!

Thanks Chloe!  Keep cool!
