More Dog Pictures

It seems as though I am turning into my dog parks historian. It is one place I know I can work on my photography skills so I bring the camera a lot with me. I then feel obligated to give the owners their pictures so I feel I am now the sole provider of cute action shots. Its fun though I and I am working on manual mode in my cam so its teaching me a lot about putting setting aperture and shutter speed to get the best picture. The problem is trying to get a good and well laid out shot of a moving dog. Well, composition can wait until I get the basics down. Funny how much harder it is shooting in full manual vs aperture or shutter speed priority or program mode which I LOVE!


Full speed ahead



Someone needs to control their foot fetish



Tag, your it



Look at that concentration

Resting

Also I wanted to let you know that I got a Flat Screen LCD TV. I am pumped!! No, I did not get cable. I knew you were going to ask that. I did however get a fabulous flat antenna so I hope that baby pulls me some mega channels. If not, I will survive. It will be sort of odd if I get more channels because I am so used to watching "that's so raven", "Hannah Montana", and "the suite life of zac and cody" while getting ready on Saturday mornings. Speaking of Saturday mornings, I met up with my bro and nephew this past Saturday morning and we took a fast jet to the plains of the Serengeti and the wilds of China. Isn't it grand to be jet setter like yours truly? I will post pictures of our grand and extremely short trip either today or tomorrow depending on how the mood strikes. I also wanted to let you know that I am sorry for the lack of recipes lately. My goal was 2 to 3 a week and it looks like I am not going to get anywhere near the quota. It's because I have been a lazy sack o' shiz these past 2 weeks and have been eating out almost exclusively. So now cooking=no pictures= no recipes. I am going try and stop this vicious cycle though so I can hope to provide you with some great new recipes soon. Also in the works is Dip Week 2009. Where I will be throwing out a dip recipe out at you, one per day, for a week. You're pumped right. Well mark it on your calendars but that is coming soon. Also had a fabulous meal at Fontaine's in the Highlands yesterday. Ate some deeeeelicious and huge raw oysters, freshly fried okra ( which was in dire need of some seasoning), and perfectly made hush puppies. This food was topped off with some Yuengling, the hot new cheap beer on the Atlanta beer scene. It's no porter or stout but it is cheap and tasty.
