Spent the day at our local Church's Annual Tricky Tray, it was a fun day. Unfortunately I didn't win that 42" flat screen TV, or the Toshiba laptop my daughter was eyeing. Well, there's always next year!

I know I've been away from the blog for quite some time, but that doesn't mean I haven't been trying to improve my photography skills.

I even adopted a Photo-buddy, one who isn't so camera shy to help me get some practice in. Meet Scout, a cocker spaniel of the Webkinz variety. He'll be making appearances regularly I'm sure.

Sunday on Broadway

I spent a wonderful Sunday in the city with my daughter Kate. She is off at college studying Communications (she'll be a famous Radio Talent some day!) and needed to review a Broadway play for one of her assignments. Kate loves Broadway, and goes to see a show at any and every opportunity, so this assignment was a great excuse. Her choice this time: Avenue Q. For a quick reveiw see Avenue Q and My Twisted Childhood. While the main characters were puppets this certainly was not Sesame Street!

Late Afternoon Shoot

Managed to arrive home a little earlier than normal this afternoon and caught some sun streaming into the den. It made immediately take out the camera and try some expermental shots with my Nikon D40.

I took a throw blanket and set as a backdrop for one of the many plush animals that happen to still be around the house, and this is the shot I got:


Little did I know, Maddox was closly watching and noticed that the little teddy bear was holding HIS toy


Maddox is a fiesty, and very jealous little yorkie (we still love him). He's just not used to sharing his toys....


He was having none of it:
