Willow Shenanigans: 3 September 2021

Willow loves playing outside and with winter nearly finished I am looking forward to playing with her in the garden or what is left of it anyway. Willow has been digging all over the. The lawn has a lot of sandpits now. I try to take her for walks whenever we have a nice day.

Something got her attention….
If nobody wants to play with me I’ll play with myself….
Love playing with her rope toy.
Is this better mommy?
Willow locked inside so that I can sweep the passage.
Mommy can I please come outside I want to play ball

Willow Shenanigans: 27 August 2021

Willow love her stuffed animals. Well they were stuffed at the time the photos was taken. I had to take out the stuffing so that she don’t eat it. I don’t want her to get sick.

She really likes her unstuffed giraffe. When she gets excited she will go look for it and start throwing it in the air. She also use it as payment for treats…. When I am busy working and she want treats she will throw the giraffe on my lap or put it on my desk and then she will look in the direction of the treats.

This is how her stuff toys look like now.

Her first stuff toy still has his filling
Her second stuff toy she chose this one herself has a arm, two eyes and stuffing that is missing. I tried to repair it…
Her third stuff toy she also chose this one. It is the other lions twin. Well he lost his stuffing and eye.

Hallo Ogies: 23 August 2021

Good day everyone,

How are you doing today?

These photos of Ogies was taken on 2 May 2021. She has this habit of sleeping with her eyes open. Sometimes it freaks people out because it looks like she is dead. You must watch closely to even see her breathing then….

Willow Shenanigans: 20 August 2021

When you go outside in the morning and found that a mini hurricane with the name of Willow hit your garden the previous evening…

Even if you take her for walks, play with her and give her tons of affection and treats she still has to be naughty. I did found that the days we went out for walks that evening she goes into destructive mode.

Hurricane Willow struck again….
“I wonder what happened here mommy…..”
“I wonder what happened here mommy sniff sniff don’t smell anything weird…..”
“Before mom realize it was me, I better distract her.”
Running around like a mad dog with her stuffed lion.
“Look mommy the hurricane did not blow away my lion.”

Thank you for visiting with me and Willow.

Have a fantastic week.

Hallo Shadow: 16 August 2021

Good day everyone,

How are you doing today?

These photos of Shadow was taken on 4 December 2020. I do hope I get the chance to take photos of Shadow in the garden again. Willow and Shadow do not get along at all and it is breaking my heart.

Getting out of my comfort zone

My go to lens is my Canon EF-S 18-200mm. I hardly use any the other lenses in my bag. Maybe I am just lazy or set in my ways. After I worked through my Advanced Module for Landscape and Travel Photography I decided that I need to start using different lenses. I have to get out of my comfort zone.

Our Flower Road Trip is ideal for doing just that. So on this trip I am going to try to use all my other lenses and not my go to lens.

I have enough lenses in my bag to choose from and they are all 100% suitable for landscape and flower photography. I have used my Canon EF-S 10-18 mm macro and Canon EF 50mm lenses for flower photography before. I however have not used my kit lens, the Canon EF-S 18-55mm for flower photography before.

Today I tested it and I am very happy with the result. The other positive about this is that my camera will be lighter and easier to handle.

Cape Honeysuckle
Money Tree Flower
Coral Aloe

I will try to keep you updated on how our days went. I must just remember to take some photos with my cellphone too…. When I have my boyfriend in my hand, all other technology is non existent for me. It is just the two of us and nature…

Wish me luck and please send us some positive vibes for the week ahead.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Willow Shenanigans: 13 August 2021

We have not taken that many photos the past month. It was raining a lot and we did not play outside that much. I hope to take much more photos with my camera of Willow when the days get warmer and we spend some more time outdoors. At the moment most of the photos of Willow is taken with my cellphone.

At the moment I try to take Willow out on drives and we go to Sonstraaldam and walk around the dam a few times.

She loves to go for drives, I cannot open the car door when she is around she gets in and it is a struggle to get her out.

These photos was taken with my cellphone.

Sniff sniff… Mom went shopping without me. I smell treats….
Who went with her…. OOOh I smell Grandpa….
Maybe if I am good she will take me for a drive….
Weekly outing to Sonstraaldam….
I am so curious….
Okay mommy we can go home now. I am tired…
