Five on Friday

I'm joining in with Amy's Five on Friday as I am having a sneaky day off work which means I can visit all of the other contributing blogs. Friday mornings of late tend to see me tearing my hair out over something or starting a countdown to the end of the working week.

My younger sister turns forty in June & I wanted to get her something special. I decided on a portrait of her dog as I'm pretty sure she loves it more than her two boys. 

I needed to get some close up shots of the pesky thing at ground level. My lack of photography skills meant this has been near on impossible along with the fact Mitzy is a speedy little thing. I managed to take a grand total of 42 on Sunday the majority being out takes - five of which I have picked for your perusal. 

I've also misplaced the charger for my now defunct camera. You know when you know where something is but you can't place it. That place is where my charger is currently hiding.







Are you all well? I do hope so xx

  2. Oh dear, sorry but I just had to laugh! Pets don't really understand co-operation do they?

  4. Very uncooperative or camera shy?

  5. Hmmmm. Cats are very much like that as well - although they turn back just after you click the shutter and give you a very disdainful look!

  6. What a pesky little dog! You could ask someone to hold it tight maybe?

  7. Oh dear, it is not easy taking animals is it. They seem to know how to be non-cooperative when the lens is pointing at them don't they!

  8. Ha ha, hmmmm, not sure they'll be able to do a portrait from any of those. That's a great gift, I'd love a portrait doing of Archie.

  9. Ha Ha, a super five. Cute little dog but not a willing poser for photographs let alone a sitter for portraits:)

  10. What a lovely birthday idea for your sister. I'm sure she'll be very happy with her gift. I hope you managed to get a decent shot or two of the dog in the end.

  14. I get the same results with our cats, that's why I take them sleeping in their baskets, I delete more photo's of cat's bums than anything else.

  15. Typical! And when you don't want them in shot they photo bomb.

  16. Oh dear! Ha ha! You've got a job on your hands there! x

  17. Oh my! That is quite a challenge you have on your hands!!! How on earth you are going to get a good straight on photo of the doggie in question I do not know! Thank you for joining Five On Friday, I hope that you have a good weekend! xx

  18. It's hard to take an animal's picture, I only manage when my cat's asleep.

  19. Funny to see that even animals get camera shy! Mitzy looks very like my brothers
    Shi-Tzu Oscar!

  20. Oh my. Taking photos of dogs is like taking photos of toddlers - they just don't sit still!

  21. They're not helpful at times are they haha! Hope you got a photo in the end, a very thoughtful gift :) xx

  22. Hilarious! Yes pets can never stay for a photo of them, but when you don't want them in the photo, guess what? They're all over it!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ah, don't think it has quite understood! Good luck with that one. :)

  24. Haha, I feel your frustration. I can never get a really decent photo of the dogs. As soon as I point the camera at them they start moving around to see what I'm doing. So annoying. xx
