21st Annual Palo Alto Weekly Photo Contest
"Girl's Best Friend"
I am a 7th grader at Gideon Hausner. This picture was taken with my sister’s new Canon elf 300 HS. I took this photo of my dog Seamus when he was laying outside. I had to try several times to get a picture of him with his eyes open. He is a very photogenic dog and we have lots of great photos of him.
Having seen many dog "portraits" over the years, I found that Ariel Axelrod's photo still found a way to stand out by getting up close and showing us the attention a girl pays to her best friend.
