I made a concerted effort to get a full canine family photo…and failed. I read an old blog post by Exercise Finished that sums up perfectly how much of a pain in the ass taking dog photos can be. It was hilarious - read it. Bear is the WORST dog to get pictures of. But I did manage a few good shots of him.
I didn't stray far from the Jeep as the sun was setting pretty quickly. Plus, the old man can't walk that far/long. But we played loads of fetch. Elly is an amazing linebacker.
And patiently waits to grab his tail and PULLLLLLL
This is the closest I got to a family picture. And it sucks.
I still don't know all the settings on my camera yet, so I switched to the "runner" mode when the light got really low. It worked out wonderfully. Although it did make Captain Slow look like he was breaking speed records.
I sat down as the sun set even farther. Elly instigated a game of chase with Bear. Which consisted of her running laps around him.
Then she took off like a rocket after Rommel.
All of the running caught up to both of them and they milled around the Jeep.
I was quickly running out of light and my shutter was taking longer and longer to close. A few more silhouettes and we loaded up for home.
Happy New Year! May your 2014 be full of adventures and discovery!
