Me and the beagle

Last night, Dawson and I went for a long walk to the U City Loop. Along the way, we ran into some old friends (Deborah and Mike) who I knew when I had my apartment in the Loop ten years ago. Deborah took this fun iPhone photo of Dawson and me.

Balloon Glow

Attended the Forest Park Balloon Glow on Friday night and saw it as an opportunity to try out my new Nikon low-light lens, a 35mm f/1.8. Here is one of my shots. More shots in this Flickr set.

Here's my friend Cherry visiting with my dog Dawson, from yesterday. I think of Cherry as Dawson's mom, as she was his owner until several years ago when her situation at the time could not allow her to keep Dawson. Cherry had found Dawson in the 1990s as a young beagle wandering the streets of North County during an ice storm.

I could tell that Dawson was very happy to see Cherry, and I think this photo does a decent job of capturing the fondness between the two.


To capture warmer tones that seemed so appropriate for this setting, I went without the flash and with a higher ISO of 1600. A little grain is noticeable at larger sizes.

Three tomatoes and three dogs!

In my backyard is an upside-down tomato planter growing some beautifully-tasting "sun gold" tomatoes. My neighbor Joan had picked out the tomato plant after reading of how deliciously-sweet the tomatoes are. And she was right! Well, today I noticed a beautiful cluster of three not-yet-ripe tomatoes, and I knew I wanted to get a photograph of them. Well, I did better than that -- I got three photographs of them, each starring one my dogs. Click on the photos below and read more about them on my Flickr photo site.
