the cake is for another dog's bday that day. chi-chi.

murph, though, kept a wary eye on the cake.

i kept a wary eye on him.

sneaky spaniel for sure.

p.s., dA ... how the f*** would anyone have mature content in plants, animal, nature? puhlease. update that shit. i never have anything that requires ticking that mature content box and it's f******* annoying. ;)

I guess you've put a wary lens on the guy too :P

Nice way of capturing the moment - though I'm sure many would have thought about it...
I somehow think that the blur on the cake was a little too strong... though the positioning of your camara is just right, not to mention that of your dog and the fact he doesn't seem to bother you at all.
I wonder how you take picture's. Do you just carry the camera at all times, like the camera man from the movie "exit through the gift shop" - a little less drastic though - or do you find a way to manually "camo" yourself by making the camera a dynamic part of you body, making it barely obvious at all?

P.s. that would be for the more... un-approriate animal photo's and art pieces T_T" Not every child (there are also 14/13 year olds on dA) wishes to see certain parts of certain animals - like elephants - on their front dA-porch. just saying :P

This is one of my favorite photos that you've ever submitted. <3 That's Murphy, right? Hope he's doing well. Anyway, I really like the title of this, too. It really fits in. Excellent work, as always, Mr. Weeks.

Wonderfully candid shot buddy. M seems to be totally focused on the "prize". Perfect focus leads the eye through the shot to the subject. Great title too. ;)
