    Its that time again!
    Time for the Pixmedic (Ihavenoideahowoftenthisisgoingtohappen) photo contest!

    *As a disclaimer, please be aware that this is NOT an official TPF sponsored contest. It is being done strictly by me and the wife, and was approved by administration.*

    The rules are simple.
    I will announce a theme. If you wish to participate in the contest, post ONE picture (taken by you) that you feel best fits the theme. Pictures taken prior to the contest are admissible as long as they were taken by you and have NOT been submitted in another of my contests.
    The judging is based primarily on theme appropriateness and creativity, not on the technical aspects or difficulty of the shot.
    Only one entry per person is allowed, but you ARE allowed to edit your post and change pictures up until the contest closes. Failure to follow contest rules will lead to a disqualification.

    to participate in this contest, post ONE photo in this thread that you feel best encompasses your vision of the theme. You can be as literal as you want, or think outside the box with subtlety and innuendo.
    The contest will run for approximately one month, and at the end of a very vague and possibly changing time period, the wife and I (along with our new puppy) will decide on a winner.

    This months theme is....
    Its a Dogs life

    Lotta potential here for both literal and alternative applications!

    the prize will be the usual (a $50 visa gift card, plus whatever the wife throws in)

    the contest will run until the end of March.
    As usual, the wife and I reserve the right to edit, change, add to, subtract from, or cancel this contest at any time for any dumb old reason.

    This is Titus. He was me and my wife's Belgian Malinois that we adopted the first year we were together. He died in February 2017 at just over 12 years of age from complications brought on by bloat (gastric dilatation volvulus). I've got literally hundreds of pictures of him, but this is easily in my Top 10 favorites. I shot this in 2011 using my old D3100 and the 18-55mm kit lens from halfway up the curved staircase of our previous house. I had just gotten the camera, and this was the 13th photo taken with it. The high contrast and heavy vignette is to dramatically over-emphasize his eyes. The look on his face gets me every time. It's like he's saying "Uhh...I don't know where you're going, but I'll be right here when you get back. I promise." God, I miss that dog.

    18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G
    40mm, 1/40 sec, f/5.3, ISO 400
