Asleep on the Job

not really-anytime Hubble runs out of steam and collapses is a perfect time to try and get some “still” shots-

Black and White Mood

Jack Henry and I were feeling in a black and white mood today. His ear was cocked because he heard some birds arguing by the bird feeder outside the office window.

Today’s Dog Quote:

The other dog—the one that all its life walks leashed and obedient down the sidewalk—is what a chair is to a tree. It is a possession only, the ornament of a human life. Such dogs can remind us of nothing large or noble or mysterious or lost. They cannot make us sweeter or more kind. Only unleashed dogs can do that. They are a kind of poetry themselves when they are devoted not only to us but to the wet night, to the moon and the rabbit-smell in the grass and their own bodies leaping forward.”

I Hear You . . .

but I cannot see you–and Jack Henry is nothing but nosy when it comes to waiting in the vet’s office.

It was nothing serious-some sniffles and sneezes due to the wet weather and pollen-but when in doubt-fortunately Jack Henry loves his vet and is always happy to pay a visit.

Today’s Dog Quote:

“When the man was disgraced and told to go away, he was allowed to ask all the animals whether any of them would come with him and share his fortunes and his life. There were only two who agreed to come entirely of their own accord, and they were the dog and the cat. And ever since then, those two have been jealous of each other, and each is for ever trying to make man choose which one he likes best. Every man prefers one or the other.”

B/W Hubble

and caught in a Hipstamatic frame to boot.

This week over at Move the Chair I have been experimenting with Hipstamatic which has been annoying, exciting, frustrating and challenging-take your pick. I probably have experienced it all working with this app.

Part of the challenge certainly has been the diverse type of films, lenses and flashes-it can be very overwhelming. But I am glad to have finally tackled it somewhat and am a little more comfortable navigating around.

Here is Master Hubble captured with a daguerreotype film and lens. One image I ran through Snapseed to clean it up a bit more.

A Different Perspective

I had all these titles for this post using the word “paws” as terrible puns in mind, but then decided to keep it simple and let Jack do the talking (or showing).

Thursday Afternoon

and we have an informal pose of sorts with Jack Henry. This was shot using the Polamatic app which I have been working with over at Move the Chair this week. Jack was a bit fussy-it had been a long day starting with a very intense session with the trainer we have been working with, plus lots of activity outside. So even with the promise of treats, he was not in the *mood* as you can see.

Just Thinking

Some might say I have entirely too much time on my hands–that is really not true (really) but when you work for yourself, you do end up with moments  just thinking about stuff . . .

For instance–what might the inner life of a dog look like?

Hubble volunteered to step up and illustrate what he would do with that idea. (And yes, that is a child-size couch he is sitting on)
