This is Gemini our English Golden Cocker Spaniel. He is 2yrs & 8mths in this shot. I was looking for different photos to make a calendar. This shot was taken in February this year when I was experimenting with different angles. I felt it looked silly to have a big nose and small body. But now I am having second thoughts. Interested in your comments as I have broken away from my ‘serious’ portraits here.

All my photos are what I see through the lens.
