A cute dog.
One of the things I do when I come back the Bay Area to visit my mom and my friends, and end up going down to the bay to pet other people’s dogs because I miss my own, is to try to capture that perfect photo of the moment when a dog comes out of the water and shakes itself off. I want to capture the water drops, glistening in the sun, and the dog looking all wiggly. I have done posts about it. I have come close a few times. But yesterday, it was a little cold and windy, and no dogs were swimming.
So I settled for trying to capture the perfect moment of a wave striking the shore, with the resultant splash.
I will add this project to my ‘perfect wet dog shaking itself off’ and my new ‘dewdrop covered roses done with a squirt bottle of water’ ideas.
I am still planning on making it over to the city sometime soon, for some more adventures to share with you. I also have some other crazy ideas I am working on.
I used the telephoto lens to take a daytime photo of the moon. I cropped it a lot, but I think it came out pretty well. It avoids the long shutter opening of pictures taken at night, and that makes it clearer.
The cold water did not deter crazy people from windsurfing, and I guess the wind actually helped them.
But yeah, I mostly go down there to pet cute dogs.
