Margaret + Thomas

Tilden Park is a happening spot.  I met Serena and Keith there, I met Margaret and Thomas there, and I also met Francesca there (who was walking her dog, but more on that later…)

This was a few weeks ago, right around the time the rains were slowing up. The ground was still swollen and soggy, but the hills were alive.  Ugh, I can hear my sister singing that song now.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good movie, but happiness can be beaten out of any young brother if they are subjected to a singing older sister who thinks she is Julie Andrews.  Anyway…

We had the park pretty much to ourselves, and went on a little walk to get acquainted – for I had to get to know Boppo – the Boston Terrier as well.  Full of energy and a healthy 8 years young, he sprang forth to the fresh terrain like a man on a mission.  Ahh, so much territory to smell and mark, but so little time and fluids.  Isn’t it the story with all of us? Hehe…

Standard operating procedure:  Walk around, look for good light and interesting features, keep Boppo off the clothes, and have a good time.  We managed 2 out of 3.

1st Day with the new 200mm F/2. An exceptional lens. I am really amazed by the color saturation and sharpness wide open. So glad I spent the... you don't even want to know.

Cruising through the trees with Boppo.

In the Eucalyptus.


Come Boppo!

Dammit Boppo. Muddy paws everywhere. Welcome to life with a dog!

That's OK. Roll with the punches and work with what ya got.

Parting shot.

So we managed to get some great shots, walk the dog, and get a little muddy. I think the day pretty much went as planned.  Thomas and Margaret, thanks for a wonderful day.

As for the random lady named Francesca, well, she had a beautiful Flat Coated Retriever, and we got to talking…  Long story short is that I have a new male puppy coming to in a few weeks time.  Gonna be a mad house around here, and I can’t wait.  You can be sure there’ll be some photos on the blog.

See you down the road.
