Scavenger Hunt Sunday...

This week I met up with my friend Corrie to do a photo shoot with her three dogs Bud, Dudley (who you may remember from a previous photo session involving mud), and Faith.  A good time was had by all (except we lost the toy I had bought for the occasion - Bud I'm looking at you!).

You'd think that if you were a 15 year old
dog who'd hurt her paw on a walk, you'd be glad
of a lift from human Mum. Not so - Faith was
most put-out at not being allowed to do what
she wanted and protested until Corrie let her
have her own way and potter along the path.

Yummy to my Tummy...
That is a terrible title,
it actually made me cringe when I read it!
Archive shots of something David was eating one day
when we were out...
Yes I take pictures of just about everything!

Favourite Toy...
This is Bud.
This is the toy that is lost.

RSC and magnolia
What I Did This Week...
Yesterday I went to Stratford upon Avon for a 
discussion on Shakespeare and Marlowe.
Stratford looked very spring-like - here's the
Royal Shakespeare Theatre framed by
some beautiful magnolia blossoms.

Early morning seagulls.

Friendly, inquisitive cow.
She must have known I was a vegetarian
who doesn't drink milk!

Me being a stalker.
Taken by the husband.

Who is obviously not as good
at stealth photography as I am.
My skills are honed...

We were in the ruins of Grace Dieu Priory,
it's not that far from where we live, dates back
to about the 13thC and is a
great location for photography.

Still loving the wide angle.
This was shot at 10mm.

To boldly go... (to Brighton)

And to hell with split infinitives!  So anyway, what was I up to last week?  I went to Brighton with Helen that's what - I was doing a two day intensive pet photography business course (not sure what Helen was doing).  We had a great time and the course was excellent if exhausting - I feel much more confident about actually starting my pet photography business now.  I really only managed to get photos of non-dog related subjects either early morning or in the evening but at least I managed to get some.  So here are a few pics from the 'Two go mad in Brighton' tour.

This is Boo... 

Boo is crazy...

Bitey Boo 
She is also an attack dog :O)))

Evening lights
Brighton in the evening...

Evening archade blue
...and again.

Calm before the storm...

Helen at the marina...

'I must go down to the seas again...' 
I miss it already.

Very early morning pier...

Scavenger Hunt Sunday...

Helloo, helloo, helloo! Here I am back from Brighton (a great place to visit if you're ever down on the south coast) after a fab two day pet photography course.  Thought I might as well utilise some of my shots from there for the Scavenger Hunt.

is pug shaped!
This is Rhian and her adorable 
dog Boo.  If you want to see some 
amazing dog photography visit Rhian's
website at

'Me and you and a dog named Boo...'
(I had to put that at some point - sorry).

Spring in B&W...
Down beside the canal
in beautiful spring weather yesterday.

The original...

David and Charlie
Family or Faith...
I posted this a few weeks ago but I 
like it so much here it is again.
David and Charlie - my guys.

Charlie would possibly rip my head off
if he knew I'd described him as fuzzy. 
I was lying on the brick paving to take this.
It hurt.

Gathering or Provide.
A gathering of gulls at Brighton.
I was standing there for what seemed ages
trying to get this shot - I knew I wanted
spray in the background.

Cats on Tuesday...

In which there is another of the occasional sightings of Ginger, the self-assured, cheeky little cat that lives opposite Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford upon Avon...

Setting out on patrol...

Having a quick scratch in a shop doorway...

Showing his opinion of some
rather naff greetings cards...

Deciding which part of
his street to investigate next... 

Heading off to the Antique Centre
(which he disappeared inside - possibly
to thieve something priceless).

For more cats getting up to stuff they probably shouldn't be doing, visit Gattina's Cats on Tuesday.
