52 Pictures - Week 8

Never so glad to see this one at our airport late Friday night on Feb 20th after nine days in Colorado to be with his mom.  He delivered his father's eulogy and sang the song he'd written for his dad in 2013.  Both were so beautiful and delivered perfectly.  My trip was sandwiched in between his.  I left Sunday, met up with two of our nieces (#awesomenieces) at DIA, drove all the way across I-70, and made a return trip just 36 hours later.

52 Pictures - Week 7

There is a story around why I took this photo, but suffice to say those are the hips that launched this dog over a 5 1/2 foot fence unbeknownst to me.

I heard a knock on our side door and when I got there my neighbor had already walked away.  I opened and he yelled "Scooby's OUT!"  I slipped on my shoes, grabbed a pack of treats, a leash and ran up and down the street (in my PJs no less) yelling frantically.

We ended up finding him just two houses over in the neighbor's backyard.

So, so grateful he didn't go far  Would have been a horrible, horrible end to a hard, hard week.

52 Pictures - Week 6 (take 2)

 Fun with Dog #4.   

No flash with incandescent bulb lighting.

In this set of pictures I think in retrospect I would like to have chosen the incandescent lighting option.  I haven't tried that setting yet, but ran across it the other day when flipping around the controls.  I am excited about receiving a new book I ordered Friday written explicitly for the Canon 70D.  Looking forward to learning more about all the controls and setting.  I'm getting  more and more comfortable with all the settings each time out.

52 Pictures - Week 6

Last night I grabbed the camera and took a bazillion photos of this little one.  I played with the ISO setting a bit and I'm beginning to understand how this works with digital photography.  I love his expression in all these photos.  They make me smile and needed to be posted.

52 Pictures - Week 5

Puppy paws. 

Several weeks ago I was sitting with this little one and realized that I really like puppy paws.  Yesterday, we had a photo practice session with her paws.  This is one of my favorites while practicing in Av mode.  F/stop was 1.8 on this photo.  

Took this one with Manual mode.   Finally got a good picture of her black fur.   Learning more and more every photo session.
