Now THIS is a very well behaved dog! He/she sat on the edge of the pool just staring at this little girl’s ice cream cone until she gave him/her the okay to have a taste. The dog ever so gently licked at the ice cream as the girl held the cone. This image is from today’s Bow Wow Pool Party at JFK Pool in Pottsville, Pa. A fun time was had by all!
Yep, this man thought I was totally insane for photographing his feet sticking out of the door of a classic car at the Pottsville Car Cruise earlier this month…..
Back to the “Big Air” competition at the Keystone Dock Dog event at Cabela’s in Hamburg, Pa. a few weekends ago. I watched and photographed for a couple of ‘waves’ of competition and the longest jump that I saw was over 26 feet! Now that’s a long jump! I’m not sure what the record is, but I was pretty impressed!
Once around the ring at the Hunterdon Hills Kennel Club show in Ringoes, NJ earlier this month. I love the flowing movement of the handler’s skirt.
Just playing with my Lensbaby and some textures on this rainy Saturday afternoon. This image began with a Lensbaby macro shot of a white coneflower converted to black and white with Nik software. Then a purple texture was added and finally a design texture on top.
Just when you think that summer is coming to an end, a bright pink flower appears in the garden for the first bloom of the season! I don’t know the name of these, but they look like miniature lilies and bloom in mid-August. They are definitely worth waiting all season to see. This is a very abstract version photographed with the Lensbaby 3G.
This past weekend, Mack Pool in Allentown, Pa. held their annual Doggie Dip Days. Each year the pool goes to the dogs just before they are ready to close for the season! The weather was ideal and there were dogs galore all taking a dip and having a blast! In this photo, it was Conga time for dog and owner in the shallow end of the pool. Can’t you just hear the conga music playing in the background?
The dogs were making a splash at the Keystone Dock Dogs event this weekend at Cabela’s in Hamburg, Pa. I loved seeing this Husky in the Big Air competition. In Big Air, the dogs run from anywhere on a 40′ dock and jump into the water after a toy. The place where their tail set breaks the water surface is measured for distance jumped. There were some high flying dogs in today’s competition!
Back in the day, the hood ornament played a major role in my learning to drive. (No, I wasn’t learning when THESE cars were on the road …. it was a “few” years later!) When my dad took me out to practice on narrow winding country roads, he always told me not to take my half out of the middle of the road. In order to help me determine if I were staying in the proper spot in my lane, he told me to try and keep the hood ornament in line with the line on the right edge of the road. I imagine that it worked well enough, but I remember having trouble at first watching the hood ornament, the on-coming traffic, the road itself, the signs, etc. Many of the cars at the Pottsville Car Cruise had hood ornaments and that reminded me of my days learning to drive a car.
