““He who kisses joy as it flies by will live in eternity’s sunrise.”
― William Blake ―

This morning was one of those hectic crazy days where work starts at an ungodly hour just to beat the rush hour traffic down to the coast. I decided the only real option would be to make the most of a clear road and stop off for pictures in the morning rather than wait all day and end up driving home in the dark. It was a good choice!

Subsequently when I was heading home the Sun was being incredibly annoying by popping behind the clouds and teasing me. I drove across country rather than up the motorway in the hopes of getting something interesting but in the end I had to stick with what I’d snuck in on the way to work – Sunrises and Trees!

It has been a while since I started my day whilst the sun was coming up and it was actually refreshing to see it. A very misty and VERY cold start to the day but worth venturing out to get some shots (and of course to get paid by going to work!) The rest of the day passed uneventfully with me flitting around doing house visits, a bit of printing in the office and then an epically long meeting at the end of the day – exhausting! I’m preparing to wrap up warm and get some frosty shots the next few days – our temperatures are reportedly dropping to -6 celcius! That’s cold for us delicate English people!

Day Twenty Nine: Buddy

“The better I get to know men, the more I find myself loving dogs.”
― Charles de Gualle ―

I took photos of Buddy today and when I looked back at them and compared to the ones from when he first arrived I was surprised at the little difference between them. It’s amazing how much you think a dog is changing and settling in to a place when really on the outside they look completely the same. In fact though, Buddy is definitely a lot bigger and fatter than when he arrived – something he desperately needed to be being a third of the weight that he should be!

Star, the other black labrador now fondly known as the old lady, is still the more camera friendly of the two. Buddy loves being able to see eyes and a smile, when you point a camera at him he’s not interested in looking at it straight on. Instead he turns his head from side to side, as if modelling all angles and then focuses on something right behind him to avoid direct eye contact with the huge clicking beast.

So the shots of him staring forward are quite rare and a lucky capture! After about five minutes of sitting on the steps aside waiting for me to stop clicking he decided enough was enough and launched himself at me instead. Gotta love dogs!
