A Kiss by wind-princess A Kiss by wind-princess
Some photos are loveletters ... this is mine to Tokala :heart:
It's made by magic, such a lucky shot by chance. I was photographing some stuff on a table when Tokala came to me, sat down and looked like 'Maybe you should take a photo of me ... or maybe two ...' And - of course - I did. First of her face, then I took her paw and took some photos with my hand and her paw, then my hand scratching her ears ... and when I wanted to stop the shooting, we just were in cuddle mood and she kissed my nose. Just for fun I held the camera with one hand and pulled the trigger two or three times not really expecting anything good (the last time I did a self portrait without a remote control or the automatic release is loooong time ago, with a digicam). When I looked at the photos I've got two with a sharp table and blurry stuff infront ... and this one. Couldn't believe my luck. I've really been able to catch this second, her 'little' tongue so careful and my own smile, just happy in this close moment. Maybe the most intimate photo I've ever shot (and I did a shooting with fiancées). Just love this dog :heart:

Edit: Holy ... can't describe how lucky I am. A DD ... a photography DD! This means so much and it's for a photo of Tokala and me, my most favourite photo of us. This is so great, so unbelievable great :heart: Thank you so much, BlightOwl & Anoya! And thank you, my beautiful dog, for being with me.

Suggester said; "Do I need to say more? Do I need to go into how much love and affection is captured in this single frame? Need I describe the delicateness of the care one being is showing for another? Is it necessary to point out the fact that this photo has with one click of the shutter captured the very essence of love? I don't think so. So I'll just say this: give this photo a DD!"

Are you aware that a Facebook fan page used your image & put THEIR mark on you picture.  They are stealing other's photos and putting their mark on them to gain likes.

Thank you very much for informing me! Putting their own mark on the image is really impudent ... at least they give credit, so I just write them, that I don't want it.

I adore this more than I can say. I have a Doberman that gives the same little kisses. They are wonderful. I don't know how you managed to capture such a perfectly timed and intimate moment. It's perfect. Congrats on the DD. Very well deserved. :heart:

A beautiful comment by a talented writer, thank you =)
A lot of luck led to this shot but I guess with someone taking the photo, it's not too hard to capture such a moment between you and your Doberman.
