I Like This But Not That

Every morning while I drink my morning coffee I look at the computer.  The first site I look at is The Online Photographer.  This morning he had a link to this: Carli Davidson - Dogs Shake

I do not like it. Interesting, technologically interesting, yes, as a science project okay, but as something I want of my dog, no.

But, I do like this :

It is a Pedigree dog food commercial. Not such a great food maybe, but a great commercial.  I love it when the wiry brown dogs feet leave the ground.

What do you think?

Dash for Dog Parks 2011

Saturday was the Second (to be annual?) Dash for Dog Parks.  It was a great great success, seemed so to me.  I got some great photos.  I have made a page: Dash for Dog Parks 2011
My favorites I show here. I had fun. Thanks to my friend Linda for her help, she made me be outgoing for a change.
Snoopy is ready for the race, but in the meantime he is curious about the camera.

It was nice for me, lots of beautiful dogs, and women too ;-)

The beginning of the race was awkward because the runners had to make a hard right immediately after the start shot, so those on the east side had a definite advantage to get to the best photo position. That of course is very important.

One, Two and Three, of the runners that ran with dogs, that was 2 k, I do believe. Apologies to the top female finisher, I was distracted by dogs in the swimming pools and when I swung about to catch her I missed. Sorry number 210.
In the rush I forgot to pass out business cards, so none of these people know they are on the web, so if you know anyone in the pictures, please let them know they are at least in a minor way, famous.

Kingston, Ragny, Bella . . .

This photograph needed to start a new post, it is a great one.
Three happy dogs. Kingston is in front, Ragny in the middle and Bella is looking over the top at Kingston. They walk together everyday, recently at High Sierra, so they are all good buddies. They are just arriving at the park so are really full of energy.

Arriving with the above trio, but staying out of their way is Milton. Milton is one of our senior citizen dogs.  He is very lucky that his friend Kelley has the patience to bring him with everyday. I am sure it makes him very happy to be out with the family. He moves slow, but he gets there.  Love the light around his ears.

Jake strikes this pose alot, but I had to take advantage of the great light and get it again. In bright sunlight it is hard to make him look good. I like him looking over his shoulder. Quite the profile this boy strikes.

Remy scopes out the horizon.  There is a group of horses that walks the fence in the distance, maybe that is what she sees. I love the light on this day.


Trying to get myself back into the posting groove, and a good way for me to get started is with a photo of my wonderful happy girl Nina Blanca. Running. We had a grey day at the beginning of the week and I was able to get a few photos. It was good light.

 I love to watch my Nina run.

The Sluggish Poster

I have slowed down quite a bit in my posting, apologies to my regular watchers, I know it is annoying. We have had a really long run of really bright sunshine, which of course is great, but not so great for pictures, and the kids and I have been walking exclusively at High Sierra Park which is a very sunny spot. I will put some new pictures up today, I got some new ones I am happy with yesterday. I have been seeing the same dogs everyday now for two months, which also dulls my enthusiasm for picture taking. I will snap out of it.

Next Saturday is Dash for Dog Parks at High Sierra Park, this should generate some great photos. It should be a great day for dogs.  Keep watching.
