Cuervo von Huerta Hof x Quellie vom Kirschental pups at 4 weeks
As I mentioned before all my camera equipment is off getting serviced. So I have 3 lens 18-200DX which needs to serviced also but I held it back, 50mm prime, and my 105. Since I am not getting sharp images from my 18-200 I was using my 50 mm, until I set my camera on the counter and it toppled over to the hard floor, smashing the lens and filter. I felt worse about losing my B & W filter then the lens..which is like my 4th copy of this particular lens. So I am now only using my 105…this is the long way of saying I am having a hard time getting pictures of the older pups. If I get on the floor to photograph them they are climbing all over me. Paige and I had a contest I would pick her up and set her by my feet (which is where they needed to be to get a recognizable photograph), any way, I would set her at the end of my legs and she would climb right back in my lap. We tried this over and over again, she wasn’t giving up, I finally did. Primo snuggled up on my legs with his butt facing me and went to sleep, Paris climbed on top of him. I was able to get Paris to raise her head once. I caught Prada admiring herself in the reflection of the stainless steel pail as I set myself on the floor, got a little foot bite and she too settled in for a nap. Apparently I have conditioned the pups to nap when ever I get on the floor with them….hmmm could be a good thing…but bad for photo ops. So while it looks like I was playing favorites, I was not, it is just how the photographic opportunities occurred with the limited scope of my equipment. This first photo is Paris giving me a “would you please be quiet so we can sleep” look:
The rest of these are Prada:
Who is that puppy in the water bucket?
Tasting my slipper
Ho hum…everyone is sleeping
my leg looks like a good resting place:
The dried stuff on their little faces and noses is their dinner…they get a lot of food all over themselves when they eat.
awww well you still took beautiful pics regardless of what camera you used. BTW, I was thinking about getting the 18-200 VR lense, do you like yours? I have an old D80, I will probably replace it next year or so with something better. I never had any of my equipment serviced, is that a must? Do you have to send them to Nikon or any camera store?
Oh Julie, you’ll do anything for an excuse to get new glass! 😉
I gather the camera is still OK? Well, look at it this way—it could have been one of the good lenses that you just had serviced.
You scared me Julie….I read the heading and I thought something had happened to one of the pups. I’m sorry to hear about your lens…but happy the pups are okay!!
Sorry Lynda! I was being sarcastic about how sad I can’t get good pictures…I can see why that title would scare someone.
I thought the same as Lynda especially when I read the first line of your post.
I love the second shot of the puppy looking into the water bucket and the caption makes it even more cute!
