old dogs and children and watermelon wine

"Ain't but three things in this world that's worth a solitary dime,

But old dogs and children and watermelon wine."

 

Tom T Hall - Old dogs, children, watermelon wine

 

Somehow the song just fits. Mind you if my parents didnt like country I guess I wouldnt have thought of the song.. Still..

 

He's getting a little old now, but you still cant convince Bonaparte that hes not a pup, getting him to pose is hard, this wasnt as crisp as I would have liked, but the black and white seemed to bring out his age more, added some film grain to this as well as a USM and some smoothing, its not perfect but I like it, I deliberately didnt over sharpen, i could go further and then smooth back a touch but im not sure if that wont lose some of this intensity.

 

Lots of character in his eyes, mind you he thinks hes human, he was my mothers dog and even now still cant work out why she's never come home. How do you tell a dog ? I dont know.

 

This makes 2 pet photos today, ive been sick and stuck at home so you photograph what's around you I guess.
