Tue, 13 May 2014 RIP Minnie

Recently my dog Minnie died at home after a short illness.
It’s taken me over a week to begin composing this message because her death has hit me (and my husband Martin) so hard. Minnie lived with us for just over a decade and we thought we had another 2-6 years together.
Perhaps people are surprised that [...]

Fri, 10 May 2013 Minnie photobomb

My dog Minnie doesn’t like being photographed. Mainly I take to take images of her when she’s not looking – when she’s occupied sniffing at something in the woods she doesn’t care if I snap some images of her. Otherwise I have to pester her to get a good shot.
Yesterday I was delighted to see [...]

Thu, 05 January 2012 bayou Coole

One positive side-effect of all the rain this winter is I get to snap an image like this.
I took this today at Coole Park while walking the dog. When we have exceptionaly rainy weather the Turlough in the park floods sections of the forest, rendering some of the paths impassable (unless you have wellies – [...]

Sun, 03 July 2011 minnie through grass

Taken this evening, during one of our rare sunny periods this summer.
Minnie the dog watches the path while I snap pictures through the tall grass.

Fri, 18 February 2011 minnie triumphant

It’s been a while since I inflicted a picture of Minnie the pooch upon you. I snapped this the other morning, as she stared resolutely away from the camera.
She hates the shiny metal box that causes me to pause and point it at objects during her walks, so she shows her disdain towards it at [...]

Tue, 23 November 2010 winter morning

For a dog that’s camera-shy – Minnie hates me taking her photo – she’s beginning to creep her way into a lot of my nature shots lately. I don’t mind as it often adds a spot of interest to the image.
As you can see it’s cold today with wintery fog. I won’t say anything [...]

Fri, 19 November 2010 making friends

This is a picture of Mr. Barky and Minnie, which I snapped today after they became friends in my local woods.
I don’t know the name of the dog, but that’s what I’m calling him, after his method of introduction when he spotted us.
Dogs are pretty easy to understand if you take the time to [...]

Sun, 14 November 2010 the frost dance

Another picture from today where Minnie edged her way into the background. She’s a rather impatient dog and doesn’t like it when I stop to take photos. Sometimes she’ll snuffle around, while other times she’ll plant herself on her arse and wait for me to stop staring at mushrooms through the shiny metal object.
There are [...]

Sat, 13 November 2010 a grey day

It’s one of those cold, wet November days where you have to search hard to find a spot of beauty.
As you can see from the above photograph, the woods are pretty bare now. I like the mood of this image, however, probably because Minnie’s body language is alert, and the path indicates a journey that [...]

Wed, 10 November 2010 Jack O’Leaf

I was pleased to capture this image this morning just using my mobile phone camera. Halloween might be over, but this looks like a Jack O’Leaf to me. It was a frosty, sunny morning in the woods today, which can mean good photos if you can find a subject. There is little foliage left on [...]
