Playful framing and new perspectives keep the daily photos engaging. On August 7, Hirsch's German wirehaired pointer, Magnum, shared the spotlight with the oak. "It was sweltering humid hot," Hirsch remembers. The photographer had been "wandering around" looking for a shot when he noticed his dog drinking from a collapsible water dish. "He sat up, water dripping off, and I said, 'Magnum, stay.' I saw that moment. And I'm pulling my iPhone out of my pocket." Luckily, Hirsch was able to position his camera phone quickly and capture the quirky shot.
