Well this year I'm trying to find a bit of a balance between showing our dogs and pursuing other interests.... aka find some more time for my photography, but not necessarily on dogs!! So over the summer months we haven't gone off to as many shows as we may have done in previous years and I've spent time practicing on other things. Things are gradually cooling down slightly. OK, you might argue against that on certain days here in Qld, but anyway we're getting back out to a few more shows.
Last weekend was my second for the year where I've spent some time photographing dogs and as many of you will already know the images are up for people to view. We had a bit of varied weather at the Tweed River shows with brief downpours and warm days but I still think most had an enjoyable weekend.
Next month the Sporting Spaniel Club of Qld has got me back again to shoot. This time at their double header shows so I'll be run off my feet. Looking forward to it though. A few other clubs have been making inquiries but in the meantime I'll keep showing my dogs and photographing where I can. It's about balance.
I must say a huge thank you to Elise though. I couldn't do these camping weekends, with the dogs and showing, plus spend as much time as I can around the ring clicking away, without her help. A special one that girl. On the last day while I'm busy photographing she's packing up the camp. As it was we were amongst the last few to leave the grounds...... and I get back home to find my son mowing the yard for me. Two great people, proud to say they're our children. They've grown into fine adults. Love you two, Elise and Matt.
As usual if you see me at a ring and want some photos just grab me.
