Stock Tank on a Still Day

It was a beautiful day in Arcadia today. Crisp, cool, but not cold, sunny and clear.

I snapped this beautiful shot around 5 p.m. today. This tank is a favorite subject/backdrop in many of my photos. The stillness is very unusual, thankfully I had my trusty iPhone.

Jack Ruby ... the farm dogs. Their names are fitting since they are like assassins when they are together.

I turned about 45 degrees to my left to snap this shot.

Just like Forrest Gump said, it's like two skys--one on top of the other.

Then Jack happened.

This dog ... blissfully ignorant of the fact that I was trying to take a pretty photo.
Wow ... just wow.

Arcadia is beautiful, even in the winter.

Pet Parade of Photos

I was sorting through a few photos I’ve taken over the last couple months, and our pets keep coming up as a subject of my photos. Our animals are a large part of our lives, but I also take their photo because I find them funny or picturesque in a particular moment, or I’m trying to learn something with the settings on my camera and they are the most willing subject given my options.

Jack (aka Jack Attack) on a hunt, just waiting for the birds to fly.
Pussums the cat with green eyes.
Nanny's dog, Sade Mae, the barky dog who is a lover, but hates it when others kiss goodnight in front of her.
Good old Ruby on the feed truck. Doesn't get much better than that for a dog.
This is what I think of when I think of Jack Attack.
