Dumpling, an 8-week-old Dachshund puppy, survived a fire in a trailer home today.

Today I shot pictures of Fred Hina, the former fire chief of the OFD. I’ve been feeling like my photos have been looking too point-and-shoot, so I was really trying to get something different.

Today I shot my first photo illustration. The assignment was to do an illustration for “Spay Day,” which is Monday. It was challenging, but I think I did all right. This was one of my favorite frames  from the day.


Edit: When I first looked through my take, I didn’t like this picture the most because I felt the girl looked like she was just going to cut off the dog’s collar. Looking at it again, though, I see more of what I was going for, and I think I like this picture a little more.
