It’s been a while since I’ve posted one of these. Maybe I’m getting better at taking pictures or something??? Well I hope so. I’ve been finding it harder to find one of my bloopers. One day while my friend Phillip was here we took the dogs for a drive. We came across some play equipment and I thought it would be fun to get a picture of one of the dogs in the little kid’s jeep. Toby never stops moving so I chose Teddy but he wasn’t thrilled about it so I got lousy photos. I ruined the best one myself by getting my shadow in it. Here they are.
It is not easy to photograph a running dog.
I took several photos of Cindy chasing a tennis ball for last week’s Fun Foto challenge. I was pretty pleased with most of them. This one I was going to chuck out until I remembered Bad Photo Monday.
I am always trying to take photos of birds in my garden or those I see when I’m out and about. Usually I spot them when I don’t have the camera with me or don’t have the right lens. Sometimes birds are just plain uncooperative.
I really should have had a longer lens.
For todays bad photo I chose one that I found while I was sorting through some photos this afternoon after work. I was looking for something to put in Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge when I came across this terrible photo. Why on Earth did I keep this one and what was I thinking when I took it???? Anyway here it is.
My photo for today is of my two sailor dolls. I was taking photos of them for Vanda’s Doll site for a post. Inside the house was much too dark so I decided to take them outside. I set them up on the back steps because then I could lean them up against the wall making them easier for me to pose them. It was afternoon and the sun was very bright. Too bright in fact and it shone on the sailor’s faces making them look rather washed out and sick. I’m thinking they must have been on the booze to get like that.
Snow near Geeveston 8 September 2017
Ah, the trees, the snow, the water, the burned out cars….
This was the scene a few kilometres out of Geeveston where a friend took me to take some photos of the snow. I don’t really mind the wrecked cars but they do kill the romance of the scene a bit.
Trying to photograph sleet out the kitchen window.
This was my first attempt to photograph sleet. I thought that I could do it out of the kitchen window as it was not quite dark. Nope! Didn’t work. I had to go and open the back door even though it was probably below zero outside.
If you look very carefully you might be able to make out the daffodils in the flower bed.
