This weekend I had the great pleasure of photographing my favorite things... puppies! I'm not going to spend too much time talking as I know that the only reason you are stopping by is because of said puppies. I'll just say that being away from my camera for as long as I have really annoyed me. And shooting fast moving puppies is hard when you are out of practice. But, overall, I'm pretty darned happy with how these turned out. Not technically perfect but, puppies. Most of you aren't going to judge me when you look at these faces. I hope.
With me on this journey is the worst assistant ever and "second shooter", my daughter, Emily.
I wanted her to take pictures of ME taking pictures of dogs. As you can see, that didn't work out all that well.
Let me start this section of very imperfect images with a new found respect for the photographers who do this type of animal portraiture for a living. How you keep all those puppies in one place for more than a second is really impressive.
This was far too advanced for me. I moved on.
Again, technically, not so good. But look at the "Box of Chocolates"!
Ok. Now, let's get to the cute stuff!!
You should stop for now. Too many chocolates could hurt your belly.
Ok. Just a few more. But don't let it spoil your dinner!
Ok, Ok. Enough of that.
To express my gratitude to my friends, the McCurley's, I will quote my favorite author, Charles M. Schulz, "All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt."
Thank you so much for giving Emily and me a perfectly wonderful day.
Oh, and I almost forgot. Emily DID get one picture of me... it's my favorite.
