This little girl was so cute. She kept going down the line of pens and feeding the dairy cows. Taken at the Manatee County Fair in Palmetto, Florida. Settings were ISO 200, 66mm, f/5.0, 1/400 sec.

This week’s theme over at ClickinMoms was if you had ten minutes to evacuate your home, what would you take.Living in Florida, we have to think about hurricanes for six months out of the year, so over the last 13 years, I have given it a lot of thought. Obviously, most of us would grab photographs, photo albums, and in our case, the NAS and our hard drives. This is the other thing that I would take. This is my ‘sick puppy’ When I was seven years old (I will be 43 next month) I was sick with the flu and had been in bed for a few days. My dad came home with this one evening and called it my ‘sick puppy’. It has been with me ever since. It went to college with me, and was in my hospital room when I had my daughter. You can see it is missing it’s nose, thanks to Jasmine, our Maltese who decided it looked like a nice snack when she was a puppy. (PS, I call it my good luck charm, because that was the last time that I had flu.)
Settings: ISO 200, f/3.5, 1/60 sec 68mm. Edited with Greater than Gatsby Subtle Color Base.
Tamron 28-75 mm lens, ISO 100, 54mm, f 5.6, 1/125 sec. I know there’s been a lot of wildlife, dogs and nature since I started, but coming up, I have the county fair that I am looking forward to and I have decided that I will be taking my dSLR with me every day. That said I was playing around to see what the macro capability is with this lens. Edited with Greater than Gatsby and Velvet Matte actions.
My intentions when I started this 365 project was to take as many photos as I could with my dslr. Well, folks, as we know, I can’t always carry around my Canon. Like most of these days, the best camera is the one we have with us, and it’s usually our phones. Today, I had to pick up Freyja from Joel’s office because he had to stay for a Puppy Raiser meeting with Idunn. I got Freyja in the car and turned around and she had the most confused look on her face and she was looking for Joel. While this is in no way technically perfect, it’s a great shot into my everyday. Dogs and dog fur. (Which reminds me, I need to vacuum out my car.)
A little late with the post, but I shared the photo yesterday on Instagram and Facebook. This is Frida, an 11 year old boxer who lives two houses down from me. Isn’t she cute? Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 lens, Iso 200, 40mm, f/4.0 and 1/125 sec. Edited with Greater than Gatsby The Carving Tree Collection. I used Clean Edit Base, Iris Sparkle and Eye White on a very low opacity.
