What Have You Done?

The Boy is a great dog but he has to play second fiddle to our precious great-niece when she visits. So when she is here, well he gets sad eyes as is to say “What have you done?” Then he gets happy as she throws food on the floor and he gets to clean up after her…….stinking dog! Love that face.

Mellow Vibe

The photo here is one I took Saturday night at a little art gallery/pub. I worked all day and met The Bride and some friends for dinner and after a little walkabout our hometown’s small downtown. After that we stopped by to cap off our night with some live music and coffee. The photo is unedited and I find it to have, like the music, a mellow vibe.

My Teddy Bear

This is my Teddy Bear. We rescued him back in 05′ and he was a scrawny little kitten with a very serious respiratory infection. I had to teach him how to be a kitten since his momma was not around. I had to show him how to use the litter box…………no I did not do that but I would put him in it when he looked like his little legs were crossing. After he did his “business” I grabbed his front paws and showed him how to cover up. After the second time he was fully trained. There was me teaching him how to feed from a bottle so I could get him to take his meds. He recovered well and other than a problem with left ear he is fat, sassy and happy. So everyone meet my Teddy Bear!

Jewels’

This is our youngest cat Julie. I call her Jewels’ because she is quite preciousness and she trills instead of meowing, it is a soothing sound and very cool besides.  I wrote a short poem about her and her mother Butterfly back in 12′.

“Golden-Eye Stray

Brought Gift Of Same

A Little Triller”

Here she is grown up and all. Julie, aka Jewels’

Our Boy

I am now back on the kitchen remodel for what is turning out to be phase 2 of a “simple” remodel. The next phase is to open up the living room/dining room by  removing a load bearing wall.We have a builder helping us but that is not going to happen till after the New Year because my point man on that project is busy till then. In the mean time I will finish the base cabinets and install the dishwasher, post old stuff, take some inside macro shots and shot as much as the weather allows of things in my corner of the world. Right now I am using unabashed cuteness to drive up my blog stats 😉 by posting a picture of Our Boy.

Trying Something New

As I mentioned in my last post  I am trying to stretch myself creative wise, not height wise to justify my present weight. As I was finishing the first book I have read since Spring I looked around and decided to shoot something within our study. I cleared The Brides desk off and grabbed a couple of things from my random collection of junk. Here are two of those attempts a trying something new.

I took this one with my Lumix DMC-ZS1. I used a scene mode that replicates a pin-hole camera. I unfortunatley did not get the flash right but I find it cool still.

I took this with my new Sony A3000. I am going to use this for my daily shooter in place of my Sony A300.I will be using that as my portrait camera until I am able to upgrade.
