Oops… maybe I shouldn’t have revved up the new puppy…

Yes, I mean him.

Who, me?

 

This was the scene.

Why wasn’t I paying more attention to my camera settings?!

DSC06013-2cp-playing-dogs-all-a-blur-wmFirst, I didn’t anticipate that Sophie and Hudson would continually move at lightning speed. Second, I was more involved with enjoying their antics (and keeping some control) than I was with capturing clarity… And third, I just don’t think super fast with my camera.

Choosing how to adjust my camera’s settings does not come to me as easily as breathing… or walking and chewing gum at the same time… or patting my head while rubbing my stomach. I have to think about camera settings. During the upcoming winter months I intend to become more technically proficient with the Sony a6000 that I bought earlier this year. I’m hoping to be able to think, adjust, point, and shoot with accuracy and aplomb, on the fly, by spring!

Back to Sophie…

I need a break!

Well maybe just a little more fun…

OK. Enough. 🙂

 

Hudson is the new rescue dog in our house. We adopted him after losing our furry-love, Archie, a few weeks before Thanksgiving. A beloved pet can’t be replaced, but all the love that still remains can be channeled into giving another shelter dog a home.

… So, we now have a lively, yet extremely cuddly, year old (year-and-a-half-old?) Puggle puppy romping and running about, keeping the older dogs on their toes.

There are quiet moments, too.
