Most photos of Piper shaking turn out as a shower of drops with the following commentary from yours truly “Oh for f*ck sakes Piper, you got the lens all wet – oh HEY! Stop that! Christ! My pants are soaked-NOT-THE-CAMERA, NOTTHECAMERA!” etc.
To me, behind the camera, Piper Shaking often looks like this:
Tweed, OTOH, stands a reasonable distance from The Food Lady and tries to shake downwind. So today I snuck up on him a bunch of times and took photos of him shaking up close and personal. Turns out, he still makes The.Best.Faces.Ever no matter where you stand to take the photo.
During photo class, we often wander around the island and take photos of stuff. I somehow always end up getting photos of someone’s dog (shocking, I know). Today’s subject was the one-eyed wonder known as Patches:
Someone else shot this happy little guy, but not with a camera :( He’s a good soul though, and doesn’t hold it against anyone.
Border collies are smart, and do the framing themselves. If they had thumbs, they’d take their own damn photos, thanksverymuch.
(Also, they’d each like a Venti-no-foam-vanilla-soy latte while I’m in there. Kthnxbai)
And then there’s Mad Teeth ™. Piper still has them, but she likes to lend them to Tweed these days. Tweed likes to use them on Very Big Dogs.
Sometimes you just have to look into the light and shoot. Sometimes the results are magical.
And sometimes one of your dogs turns 8 years old and you take advantage of that occasion by buying that dog a cake and then taking mean, evil photos of No Touching and Cake Anticipation and the like. Sure, you’ve done it before but it’s still pretty damn funny.
Check back later in the week for photos of such a criminal event.
Lastly, this past week we said goodbye to Buster, a good rescue dog who lived a long and happy life with his mum Wendy, and who will be greatly missed.
