Long face in the cone. This was taken two weeks ago, right after his procedure to fix an ear hematoma. The poor boy was not happy and let everybody knew it. As of a week ago, his bandage was off, but he has to keep the cone until the end of the month. The cone -along with our legs, furnitures and the window’s floor-length blind- was badly battered and ripped at the moment (this is a non-exageration; part of our […]
My dog Bruno turned 10 today. Hip hip hoorah! His greyish muzzle shows his age, but I can’t say the same about his behaviour. He still behaves like a pup. It’s true what they say, Labradors have a (very) long period of puppyhood. In Bruno’s case, I’m afraid, it’s never ending. Bruno is a well travelled dog. He was born in Lommel (Belgium), 10 years ago, and moved with us to Australia when he was 5. He left Belgium a […]
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.
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 […]

It was too late and I was too tired to post this photo last night, but here it is now. This is Bruno and his buddy, gorgeous Jasper. Big thanks to R&K (and also Jasper) who were super sweet and kind to keep Bruno at their home while we were in Sydney. My house feels really quiet now without my sister and nieces, and I’m sure Bruno is missing Jasper too…
Today was one of the drab days. I’ve been feeling under the weather lately, and felt totally exhausted today. I have zero energy left. What Bruno is doing in the photo is exactly what I feel like doing and probably what I am going to do right after I published this post. Either that, or just veg out in front of TV until I’m conked out on the sofa.
There are times when you just don’t have the energy to do anything else, there are times when you are so busy you can’t even sit down for 2 minutes, and there are times when your mind just refuse to cooperate with you just because. Tonight was one of those times. For me. Don’t get me wrong. I had a very good and productive day. It’s just I realised I haven’t taken any photo for today’s post and it’s already […]
I honestly am running out of idea for today’s daily photo. We just got back from Sydney and I felt a bit tired and lazy. I was running out of things at home to shoot, and the day had started to turn darker. I finally decided to take a photo of Bruno, my dog, who I’ve been missing for days because we had to leave him at the kennel. The house never feelt quite complete without him around so I […]
This is the first post but the photo was taken last year, the day I started a new relationship with my new DSLR (I got Nikon D90 in case anyone is interested). Getting to know which buttons works what took some time. Moving object was a huge challenge, that’s why our good ol’ Bruno here was perfect as a model for my new ‘eyes’. That afternoon he was super chilled, super cool, and looked ever oh-so-handsome.
