This isn't the greatest time of the year to photograph horses so my horse pics are very few at the moment. I am afraid I will have to share the coming of winter with you all. These are two house sparrows at my bird feeder, they scatter all the seed they dont want and the feeder empties fast, then they have to rummage around on the ground, which is kitty cat territory. Fortunately we don't have to many incidents as the cats are well fed and only ever kill something to eat it. They are professional mousers LOL.
I did a shoot for a friend last week, her husband has gundogs and he wanted me to photograph two he has for sale. This little guy was one he had bought, a 10 week old pointer (I think) pup. Can't remember now if it is male or female, wil confirm that when I see them next, but nonetheless a ball of energy that was very hard to photograph LOL.
When I first arrived Vic was exercising all the dogs, these are 5 of his labrador retreivers, two of them I was going to photograph. I just thought it made such a cool photo. He had abut 5 or 6 others of different gundog breeds running around him too but I couldnt get them all in one frame unfortunately.
I heard from my step sister (my Dad's second Wife's one daughter from her first marriage) Di today, it was so cool, another person I havent seen or spoken to in many many years. Our parents were very close friends when we were little, in fact my Mom and her Mom wore the same wedding dress for their respective weddings, Marie borrowed my Mom's. We used to see them often in our younger days. They were part of a very large farming family in Zimbabwe and over time we lost contact. Marie's husband and young son were killed by terrorists on their farm in an ambush and time just flew by and it was only years later when my Mom passed away that Marie regained contact with my Dad. They hit it off from the very first. My Dad was a very soft kindhearted domestic soul and he and Marie were perfect for each other, my Dad having lost his wife after nearly 25 years of marriage was devastated and Marie had lost a big part of her family so tragically years before. We were all so happy for them.
Unfortunately they were only married three years when Marie was diagnosed with Cancer too and she passed away shortly afterwards.
So it was fabulous to hear from Di today after so long, I have a lot of catching up to do.
That's all the news for today, have a great weekend all ((((Hugs)))))
