Spencer – August 2014

Spencer gets a lot of mentions in my posts; he’s always with me when I’m out walking, and he is such a good, patient boy while I am shooting.  I try to resist the urge to post photos of him though, or this could well turn into a Spencer fan page, rather than a wildlife and landscape photography blog!

But, this weekend there was nothing to shoot, and I just spent the past half hour having some fun doing a couple black and white conversions of photos I took of him, so I thought I would share.

Next post, back to topic 🙂

The loveliest eyes I've ever seen on a pup (yes, I'm highly biased) :)

I decided to have a play around with using my flash off camera, and Spencer was my subject of choice.  You can see just how excited he was to get his photo taken.

Spencer – 10 years together

Ten years ago, I drove up to Kaleden and returned home with 4 1/2 pounds of fluff and attitude.  My life forever changed.

Just a few months old, playing with his teething keys.  I was very lucky he almost always chose to destroy his own things rather than mine.

He’s always been, and always will be, much more than just a dog.

Out at the dikes for a walk, one of his favourite places.

Rather than say any more, it’s time to grab the leash and head out for an early morning walk; just us and the birds, which we both prefer.

Spencer was enjoying the sunny weather on the weekend – it’s been the first time this year that we have had any porch time.
