For my photo assignment this week in my photography class, we had to take photos and then convert them to black and white. Now, I only had to turn in one photo, and then write why I took it, why I used the subjects I did, what kind of lighting was used, all the settings for my camera, etc, etc. I even had to name it! I used the very first photo for my submission and named it, "A Quest." One of my favorite things about beagles is their history, I love their hunting dog background, and I'd like to think Skywalker would be very good at chasing down foxes or rabbits. Muggles, not so much, she's not very athletic, ha. But, I felt the first photo displayed their inner "beagle" with Sky sniffing the ground and Muggles on the look-out. 

I actually love all of these photos in color, too, and I'm definitely framing a few. Life with beagles isn't always easy (obsession with food, the braying that the neighbors despise, always trying to find a way to the other side of the fence), but its so, so worth it. They're the sweetest dogs, and they are always happy to see you. Their unconditional love is much appreciated on the days when I'm feeling down about things in life. Plus, their good subjects to shoot!
