Brodie the Boxer Dog
Brodie the Boxer Dog

I’d like you to meet Brodie the Boxer dog. Cute isn’t he? Brodie used to live next door, and like all Boxers, he was ungainly, playful and a little bit silly. When we were kids, we had a Boxer called Prince (full show name – Chance Fair Aaron Prince). Prince was silly, flatulent, loyal and happy; just as a dog should be.

This photo was also picked for Flickr Explore; the algorithms of which I really don’t understand! I think I must have spent 24 hours listening to the beep notifications from my Flickr app as people liked it!

From my perspective, this photo is a little flawed. Ideally I’d like to have had Brodie’s eyes in focus rather than his rough nose, but it was just one of those chance opportunitues and I didn’t have much time to press the button. Animals move quickly, and I counted myself lucky just to make this one!

    This is a great shot and I actually quite like the fact that his nose is in focus rather than the eyes as it adds an extra element of humour.

    He is darling. We had boxers long ago, nice dogs, but big! They were named Duke, and some other “royal” name…must have been the fashion to name boxers that way.

      It must have been @pat-dreger ! I love Boxers, but like all dogs, they need the right family and home.

    I love the shot, Steve. Having my own fur baby, I know you have to take that shot when you see it. Congrats on it being picked up for Flickr Explore.

    It is a beautiful photograph and I think it is perfect. It is not flawed in its form now. I’m not a photographer but I do have a good eye. When we try to make things too perfect they become imperfection. You can tell me to mind my own business now. lol

      Oh, on the contrary @pjd-parent I appreciate your opinion! I agree with you too. There has to be a time when obsessing over perfection stops and action begins.
