The Perils of Photography

Hu-dad works hard to get good photographs of us for the blog, but we are not always the most cooperative subjects. That is particularly true when it is 20ºF (-7ºC), windy and snowing. Ah, the perils of photography.

just concentrate

That’s great, Typhoon. Now just look at the camera and concentrate.


Concentrate, Typhoon, concentrate.

Come on.

It’s just a leaf blowing in the wind. Come on.

    I think that we all can relate!!!! I’ve started a new game with our dogs. I say 3-2-1, and then I give them a treat. If I’m taking a photo, the countdown makes them look at me and I click the shutter before they get their treat 😉

    Sorry hu-dad – leaves are very interesting!

    Naturally the word peril is matched with that cutie patootie Typhoon!
