Sunny Sunday - Canine Capers

By LynneJoyce  
Photos from the lovely, long walk around St Ives that Ansel and I had on Sunday. We were blessed with sunshine that was punctuated by occasional cloud as you can see from the opener. I chose that one because it gives context and describes the atmosphere of the day with lots of people out walking their dogs and enjoying the pleasant weather and lovely vistas. Well most people were but there were the inevitable phone junkies who were glued to their phones and missed the lovely surroundings entirely. I despair!

As you can see from some of the shots Ansel managed to find several playmates to play chasing games with, a very useful distraction when I was preoccupied with my camera. The Dachshund in V6 was not in play mode at all. He was a stroppy, pocket sized battleship. Why is it always the miniatures that are aggressive?

I am inordinately pleased with V2 because I managed to capture Ansel doing his favourite thing at last. I do everything possible to discourage his tree chewing antics but nothing works for long. As you know I am not a fan of black & white generally but this one looked better in mono. V8 is one of those images where everything is wrong with it but somehow it works and I love it.

No matter how down I feel a walk with dogs will always lift my spirits and I hope that I have conveyed this in this post. The little terrier in V's 4 & 14 was a bundle of joy and the Irish Setter in V's 8 & 11 was poetry in motion. Ansel, as ever, was his delightful, exuberant, joyful self.

As ever the exif applies only to the first shot. Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of these images.

A real fun set - love V1 of Ansel but go to admit that Irish Setter is a beauty.

Love your opening image, Lynne. Smile
Now theirs a dog who loves life and his owner.
The atmosphere certainly does come through as does the enjoyment of the day.
Smashing set, Lynne.


P.S. I do agree about phone junkies. One day they'll raise there heads to find that life has past them by.

Few animals seem to enjoy life as much as dogs, they will run till they drop and come back for one more throw of the stick or ball.

Another great series Lynne.
