More Joy of Spring

Today was a beautiful Saturday here in Kentucky.  I decided that, with the nice spring weather, I would fill in some patchy spots in my lawn.  My dog, Pita, and I embarked on a mission to gather the necessary supplies.  I put down a little topsoil and began casting the grass seed by hand (New Testament parable style) when I noticed that Pita was starting to think this was some kind of game.  I would throw the seed and she would run through it like it was her wedding or something.  It was really cute, but she was starting to hinder the process a bit, so I had to put her on the deck and close the gate.  But when I finished seeding, I played fetch with her favorite toy and let her run through the sprinkler.

Everybody knows that when you plant grass, you must water it.

After a while she became tired, and it occurred to me that it was a beautiful day to take some pictures.  So I grabbed my glass and a tripod and started making some HDRs to document my afternoon.


Pita's favorite toy is this mini basketball with a rope in it.

Pita, weary from an afternoon of joy.

It’s not easy taking a 3-exposure HDR of a dog – requires a lot of shooting/deleting.

I’m trying to push myself to pick up the camera a little more often, just to keep in good shape.  Spring is really helping to motivate me 🙂

    I was happy about the mini wedding and the beautiful pix! We do have a cute pup, and an enchanting sprinkler system too from the picture.
