Facing The Camera Challenge

All Hu-Dad has to do every day is get a few photographs of us, but apparently those come out better if we are facing the camera.

Look - down in the field.
Look – down in the field.

Hu-Dad says we are not always the most cooperative models. For example, he wanted a few photographs of Roscoe playing in the yard, but whenever he pressed the shutter button, Roscoe would turn his head. The result is lots and lots of photos like these.

Who's inside?

In fact, of the dozens of photos that Hu-Dad took of Roscoe, just one had him look straight at the camera.

Yep, this one.
Yep, this one.

    That is a nice picture! Roscoe looks so sweet (and so curious!). Huskies do seem to know the exact moment when the camera is going to “click”…they make us crazy!
    I bet they are all enjoying the cold temperatures!!! ⛄⛄⛄

    Roscoe has such a smooth coat. (I’ve always wonder how many shots you take every day to get the few you want.)

      Some days, only a few are needed. The moments are easy and clear. But, other days, it takes a bit.

    Don’t feel bad Hu-Dad-I think it’s a husky thing. Every time I TRY and get a good picture of our boy Bradley-YEP-just like Roscoe-he turns his head-lol Maybe they are camera shy???

Halloween Costumes

October 31, 2014 |

We live on the top of a mountain at the end of a dirt road. We do not have trick-or-treaters show up at our house. Ever. Still, we do sometimes wonder what Halloween Costumes are appropriate for us.
