It’s a Saturday morning with the promise of a beautiful day to come, and I’m putting off taking down the holiday décor by taking photos of yours truly ~ George.
Yes, I know I have a lot to do today. There’s the two Christmas trees to take down, and everything else around the house . . . there’s grocery shopping (which I loathe) . . . and the laundry. But I just don’t want to begin it all yet.
These images aren’t great. I had the ISO upped way too high which made the whites almost completely blown out. I corrected it as much as I could in PS with an action from Florabella called ‘Highlight Protection’, and then I processed the images using an action from Red Leaf Studios called ‘Ceres’, which is one of my favorites.
I was sitting on the front porch in the morning sunshine enjoying my lovely cup of coffee and my husband let George out the door. George was carrying snowy owl and he wanted to play fetch.
I went back into the house to get the camera because he looked photogenic.
And I told him to ‘stay’.
I love it when dogs do what you tell them to do, and this one does 99% of the time.
There is no trick in training them other than consistency, and when he was a puppy, I made sure I was consistent. To this day, George will heel for me (yet he never does it for my husband, who is not using the right command). The command is heel.
I regularly practice heel with George just to keep it fresh in his memory.
This is one of those oops that I kinda like. Doggie bokeh, eh?
I do believe I need to get moving and get my a** in gear.
So I’ll leave you now with a wish for a beautiful weekend, my friends.
I’m so glad you stopped by today ~
And thank you for all of your sweet comments from my previous post, one I nearly took down several times after hitting ‘publish’ because I thought I was making fun of someone. I cope with humor.
