Splat – Lensbaby Blog Circle

 

Having missed last month’s post I can’t believe how quickly this has come round.  I wasn’t sure what to post this moth until fate intervened. The shots below show my springer spaniel Splat. We had fun for six years, he got me through some challenging situations and its amazing what you can learn from a dog.

 

I’m surprised I have so many photos as he didn’t like the camera and would move away when I got it out. He loved to play fetch with a tennis ball and to race the German Shepherd, Jack. Some of the shots I’ve used before and there are some new ones and few oldies I found in my archives.

A Dog’s life – Lensbaby Blog Circle

One of the benefits of my job is its flexibility, enabling me to work at home when I need to. Having worked at home a few afternoons this week, I was amused by how my dogs just settle down and sleep. Today I had my camera beside me with my Lensbaby Burnside lens and I tried to capture them at different points in the afternoon.

 

It was a productive afternoon.

Playing on the common – Lensbaby Blog Circle

In the first Lensbaby blog circle post I introduced Tyke. He was two months old and very cute. He has grown very quickly and is now as tall as our older springer. He’s yet to fill out but runs around the house, garden and common with the others. I was playing with my Velvet 85 when we were all on the common at the weekend and I thought it was time to get some shots of Tyke in action. What do you think? He’s the one with the white stripe down his face.

Playing in the snow and making friends

It’s been freezing cold all week and the snow finally arrived on Thursday and Friday. We went out on the common this morning and all was quiet. Most of the people we normally meet drive to the common but the carpark was empty. Jack and Splat love the snow, the puppy is not so sure. He doesn’t have enough fat to stay warm. We were heading home when we met Saffron, which was a good excuse for some fun.

 

As we got closer to home Evie was waiting at the gate. Tyke wasted no time making friends.

 

 

It was a cold misty morning, and I didn’t really expect to take my camera out of the bag, especially as I ‘d forgotten my gloves, so it was great to get these shots using my Lensbaby Velvet 56.
