i.e. – as “fine” as Tweed gets. Oh and his shoulder is better too. He played agility last night for the first time in many weeks and he was *so* excited that every time the barn door opened for a new classmate, he bent himself in half, hollered “WooWooWoo-ooo-owowowow-waaaa-wwww” and crab-wiggled over to welcome them. It was Tweed’s party, and he could be a dork if he wanted to.
Anyway. Back to
Recently I purchased a Canon 20D (thanks Derek!) as an upgrade to my much slower 300D. Getting a new camera is like getting a new boyfriend (except way lots better!) – each one has its own quirks and personality. For example, Woo’s orange-ness gives this new camera the fits, and I have to fiddle with the settings or he comes out FLAMIN’-freakin’-orange on settings that would be more subtle on the 300D
And because we are new to one another, me and the 20D don’t always see eye-to-eye. Sometimes I forget to change certain settings because they’re in a different place than on the 300D and so my little rituals get messed up (<--OCD). Anyway, it was grey and almost-rainy out today; this is only me and 20D's 2nd or 3rd date, and my zoom lens doesn't operate at its best in low light. So not all the photos are great with respect to quality. However, sometimes the *content* of the photos is pretty damn funny, which is why I've included them anyway. For example: In this FAiL, Piper is out of focus and the framing and exposure are both off.
However, if you look closely, you can see how Piper’s nose is all wrinkled up as she anticipates getting hit in the face with the FAiL frisbee, and you can see the slobber in the air above her face from the sheer effort of her FAiL. I thought that was pretty damn funny.
I promise, as me and 20D get to know one another, the quality of the photos will improve.
Mr. Woo decides not to risk any aerodynamics and goes straight to
Not every FAiL was action based. I tried to get a handsome portrait of Tweed and instead I just got
tried again, and got MORE FAiL!
Although to be honest, I really like that last one. And it gave me an idea, so I took this photo which is not a FAiL (though it *is* of a “Labradoodle” and in my not-so-humble opinion, ridiculously overpriced crossbreed dogs with silly name tags and the people who purchase them are their own special kind of FAiL).
This Is A “LabraNose”
Which lead to a sweet shot of Piper:
And by the time we got back to Tweed, our luck had returned. This camera actually really likes Tweed a lot.
In other news, I tried to get a portrait photo of Donut, but all I got was
