For Shimelle's first photo challenge we were to take a picture of something up close.
This is my dog's tennis ball. It is rarely out in the open and not moving. If he sees it, he wants to play ball. I mean, that's what it's there for, right? But for some reason this evening, he left it behind for something slightly more important. Not much pulls him away from the ball - usually only thunder or a really loud truck that must be barked away. So while he was away, I snapped a close up of the tennis ball - because I may never get that close to it again!
