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.
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.
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 🙂
