Despite the technical issues with this picture of Diva (slight bluish cast to her fur, sun streak, noise), I ended up liking it. It was shot using a fish-eye filter on my 50mm lens.
It took forever to get Diva to look up at me, and then the colors were weird, but after a few minutes of fixing it and turning it sepia, I really like this picture.
While in the 80s today, temperature wise, Diva didn't seem too hot, as long as she was laying in the shade in the grass!
Diva was showing off her teeth for my fish eye lens again.
A hot, happy dog.
Have I mentioned before what Diva's breed is? Does anyone think they can guess? She is purebred, and it is a breed accepted by the AKC (though the show dogs don't have haircuts and probably aren't all curly from swimming!).
