Me and my ball

By Sweetpea
This was actually taken back in March but I've been struggling lately to a) take pictures at all, and b) take pictures I'm actually happy with. Hence I haven't uploaded much so just to keep those people who have hinted at the lack of uploads (you know who you are, Patrick), here is a pic of Fred with his toy out on a walk. He's had a haircut now so looks completely different but I was pleased with how this turned out, and the expression on his face. He really looked like he was having a lovely time out on his walk Smile

LOL - I'd like to appologize for whoever is logging in as me and entering terribly insensitive comments into unsuspecting and innocent EPZ'ers photo threads. Whoever is doing this should be ashamed of his/herself!

Oh, about the photo... well, it is a classic portrait and he looks really happy. The exposure time looks good and the details are nice and sharp. If you are in a creative rut, don't think too much about it because it just puts you more into a rut! Just carry the camera around and so that if you see something good, you are ready for it. I went on three different hikes over the long 3 day weekend and I never once even took the camera out of the bag even though I carried it everywhere. The skies were clear without even a single cloud so I didn't even bother!

Brilliant looks like an Airedale but never seen one grown out like that before. We've had them in our family for 20 years, they're unique, love them.

Who could refuse a friend who looks like this anything. A lovely picture taken at a level of the dog.
While you on have a look at mine.
