Not technically brilliant (ok so out of focus!) but wanted to post a shot as a follow on from yesterday from the same session.

During the last few months I was not so active on EPZ due to spending a lot of time looking for a rescue dog. I had almost given up finding one that would be suitable, and although I wasn't keen on a puppy, I went to see one in foster. I was all ready to pop the pup in the back of the car to bring home... then this little chap gave me 'the look', and I had to turn round and say, 'er well actually I've changed my mind, can I have this one instead?'.

He was rescued as a stray from Ireland - they have a much bigger problem with strays over there and a much higher percentage of dogs end up being destroyed than in the UK.

It has been heartbreaking scouring the rescue pages for a dog - there are cases of neglect and abandonment, and downright cruelty, that are impossible to avoid, and I have the utmost respect for those that work in rescue - I couldn't stomach it. Although none of us would knowingly buy into the trade of indiscriminate puppy farming and backyard breeding where profit is more important than the animal, you only have to see the 'excess litters', discarded breeding bitches and abandoned older or ill dogs out there to realise how carelessly some people treat their pets. I don't agree with over-sentimentality, or anthropomorphisation, - just respect. Oh, and neutering! (cover your ears dog, you've got that to look forward to next week!)

Happy new year all. I used Al Servo on centrepoint focus - is this best for this type of shot? (I've lost focus on many of them, but maybe problem exacerbated by low light levels)

Awww! Bless him! He looks so happy, I'm so glad he has a good home now. Don't worry about the "little operation", he won't even realise they've gone when he wakes up next week!!!
This is a cracking shot, you've really captured his exuberance, and I just love those ears.
Al servo is probably the best way to go, I set my camera to speed priority, but it takes 500th sec (at least) to catch my collies on the run! The more light the better, but too much sun and you get burnt out white bits and too dark shadows... Can't win (unless you swap him for a light brown dog!)
