Photographer’s Day Off

I’ve been on a long break as I recover from surgery. Sometimes I have a hard time going out for a fun time, feeling like I must bring my big camera and equipment and aim for perfection. Luckily I was able to just bring my little point and shoot to capture our puppy’s first day at the beach. We didn’t stay too long because it was windy and damp and chilly at the dog beach, but I got a few fun shots. One downfall of point and shoots is that you can’t see the screen very well in bright sunlight which means sometimes you just have to aim and shoot and hope you captured something worth keeping. Chill, our almost 6 month old puppy had a blast. I would have to call him fearless, fassst and a fan of trying to chase seagulls flying overhead. I didn’t get many shots of our other fur babies, but I had to shoot Jimi with a face covered with sand. He doesn’t care, he is such a ball chasing maniac!P1000992 4x3P1010001 4x3P1010003 3x4P1010010 4x3P1010011 compositeP1010012 4x3P1010016 4x3P1010018 4x3P1010023 4x3P1010025 4x3 On the way to Morro Bay the dogs were full of anticipation – on the way home they were blissful with memories of sand, sea and chasing balls and seagulls (only flying overhead.)                                                                                                                                    p.s.: Can you guess which photo I photoshopped?
