Photo Weekly Challenge: ‘A’ Launch

In 2011, WordPress had a daily challenge and a weekly photo challenge. Everyday a WordPress representative would post a topic for the public to use and abuse.  Likewise, every week they posted a topic for photographers (laymen and professionals alike) to interpret as they saw fit.

I didn’t discover either until late in the year.  I don’t think I ever used the daily prompts, but I did enjoy participating in the photo challenges.  That, along with SomethingNewPlease, inspired my Friday Fiction idea (wherein I use a picture to come up with a 100 word fictional story).

I had thought to continue using the WordPress photo challenge to incorporate into my Friday Fictions, but they have decided to do something different for 2012 and haven’t announced that might be – yet.  In the meantime, I will participate in FrizzText’s challenge instead.

His is quite simple.  The letter ‘A’.  For me that’s Attention.  And, yes, here’s a another picture of my dog (two sentence story to follow).

Alby paying attention to the ball

Ball high, descending – catch! Never take yours eyes off the ball.

Lo and behold, WordPress came out with a photo challenge today: Launch. Alby does double duty.

Up, up...and awaaaay!

All photos taken by me circa 2004.

    Nice take on the photo challenge! Great action shots there.
    Alby looks like a sweety.

      He is a sweety. He’s a hunter, always trying to kill something, and we’re vegetarians, but we still love him.

      Yeah, it is fun watching him jump.:)

      No problem. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. That was one amazing , talented launch. It so cool how the dog seems to fly above the ground. Reminds me that we can do anything, be anything in 2012. Happy New Year.

      He is flying! Even at 13 years of age, he still gets major air. This was taken a few years ago and I never did like it because it doesn’t really show how far he could jump (8 – 10 ft easy).

    Love these pictures. I want to get a dog. I think John and I are going to get a husky this year.

    1. tmso says:

      Oh! A part of me says Yeah! Puppy!, but the other part says Huge Lifetime Committment. Decide with care…

  5. You’ve really caught the dogs movement there. Nice entry.

  6. I think partly he jumped that high because he knows how much you believe in him. You made him soar and reach things that made him happy…..
