This was the dip after Christmas before we all get excited again to welcome the new year. It’s the day when reality started to tap on your shoulder and reminded you that you still have the whole household to take care of even when you are in a ‘holiday’. Well, I was busy all day doing chores and almost forgot that I haven’t posted anything. Thank you Bruno, my always ready back-up subject. He’s ready to go to bed, in […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED | ISO500 | f/5.6 | 1/100| This is Whiskey. He is a super duper active 2-year-old dog. He was surrounded and totally spoiled with treats by a bunch of kids today, maybe that’s why he looked so happy. I’m so glad to see that other dog finding it hard to stay clean. Like my dog. Whiskey here was covered in cob/spider web all over his face and body, with some dried […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED | ISO320 | f/5.6 | 1/160| Nikon D90 | AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED | ISO320 | f/5.6 | 1/80| Peacocks run free at the local zoo. These two were seen chilling out under the shades, well protected from the heat of today. The male peacock (top) was more restless than the female one, but they were hanging out not a meter away from each other. Sweet. This post is […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO320 | f/2.8 | 1/125 | I took this shot pointing my camera behind the thick foliage under the deck. Dog was chillin’ on the sand under the deck ready for his afternoon nap. This is his favourite place outside the house. Explains why there are tons of sand/dirt on the floor inside our house every single day despite my obsessive floor-sweeping.
I did not take any photo today as I was busy recovering from our ‘action-packed’ weekend. I did take heaps of photos then, so for today’s post I will share some of them, taken from several activities we did over the weekend. Nikon D90 | AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED | ISO400 | f/7.1 | 1/640 | School Spring Fair. The Animal Paddock was always the highlight at the fair, and this year was no exception. Who could resist […]

This sandy and scattered with hair floor… Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO400 | f/3.2 | 1/6 | ..is the ‘price’ we pay for sharing our life with this hairy face. Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO4000 | f/5| 1/8 | But he’s totally worth it! 🙂 PS: In another news, today is the 300th day of the year, people! Sixty six days to go before we welcome 2013. Indeed. It’s crazy.
There were usually other more interesting and much nicer birds hanging out on the electricity wires around my house. But not today. As soon as I came outside two magpies were all I saw. One was standing closer to where I stood, and I could just feel his evil eyes staring down at me. He had this -I-want-to-swoop-and-peck-your-ear-’til-it-bleeds- look, I could see it well with the zoom lens I used.* Then he was off. To terrorize some innocent cyclist and […]
That special skill to keep my subject of photography ‘engaged’ for the shoot was in serious doubt today. For one the subject was clearly not very enthusiastic. He wasn’t even awake, he fell asleep soon after, and even snored a little despite me lying down on my belly right in front of his face breathing close to his nose. I want to focus on his greying muzzle this time, as it looks more grey than ever. I was sure it […]

Wonder what he was seeing from there. Was it a look out, or a stake out? Was he watching the rain? Or just followed anything that moved out in the street? Did he wish to go outside and played in the rain? I bet he was just daydreaming…
Spring was in the air already. The manic magpies have started their attack strategy from their nest. You could tell from the way they were looking at you. But magpies nastiness aside, today was a gorgeous day. A perfect day for a dog day out. To the dog park we took our dog Bruno so he could socialize with other Canberran K9s in this beautiful (almost) spring day. A lot of dogs were out today, many kind and of many […]
